On Sunday, September 16, 2012, the World Financial Group-sponsored curling team, Team Jennifer Jones, won its first curling title of the season, winning 6-2 over Calgary’s Crystal Webster at The Shoot-Out at the Saville Community Sports Centre in Edmonton, Alberta.

The team was led by two-time Canadian junior champ (2008-2009) Kaitlyn Lowes, who took over skipping tasks for Jennifer Jones who’s out for the first half of the season recovering from knee surgery and awaiting the arrival of her new baby in December. When asked about not having Jennifer there and their win Lawes states, “She has been super supportive. We’ve phoned her every day. She’s so excited for us and very happy we were in the playoffs and into the final game. We felt comfortable out here. We worked well together and read the ice well.”

The team also commented on the joy of beginning the season with a win, missing Jennifer, and having World Financial Group as their sponsor. “It’s always nice to start the season with a win. It gives you confidence right from the start and it’s something we can build on and take to the next event. It was certainly different being out there without Jennifer, but our super spare Kirsten (Wall) came in with no problem, played well and helped us win.

We are very proud to wear the World Financial Group colors this season and are looking forward to the relationship with employees and clients.”
