Team (1987)

Canadian Women's Curling Champions

Curling out of the Hub City Curling Club, the 1969 McKee team won the city title maintaining an undefeated record 4-0, through the A side event, and advanced to the northern playdowns. This was Joyce’s eighth city title. At the northern playdowns, the McKee foursome recorded five straight wins, clinching McKee’s fifth northern title with an 11-3 victory in the “A” final.

The victory advanced the team to the provincial championship, where they defeated the southern representative in two straight games. At the Dominions, the McKee foursome was tied with the Ontario rink, after eight rounds with identical records of 7-1. They met in the final ninth round of the championship. Battling back from a 4-2 deficit, the McKee foursome topped Ontario 6-5 capturing the Canadian women’s curling crown for a third time.
