15 Aug 2017 – It may have been 5 years since Bridget Becker and brother Sean last competed together, but you wouldn’t have thought so after they comfortably won the NZ Mixed Doubles Curling Championship last weekend.
Their teamwork may have been understandably a little rusty early on, with a second round loss to the eventual bronze medallists Eleanor Adviento and Brett Sargon. But they found their form quickly and improved throughout the tournament to finish the round robin with a 5-1 win-loss record.
Courtney Smith and Anton Hood played consistently well through the round robin, dropping just their opening round match to the Beckers to also finish on 5-1.
