A 37-year-old Sudbury, Ont., woman is celebrating winning her first Scotties curling tournament after her team dominated the competition with an undefeated record.

Tracy Fleury has been curling since she was five years old and is the vice-skip for Team Homan.

She joined the team during the 2022-2023 season as the No. 1 Canadian-ranked skip during the previous season.

Since Fleury joined, Team Homan has won nine titles, including the 2024 Scotties Tournament of Hearts held in Calgary, Alta. Feb. 16-25.

Winning all eight round-robin games and three playoff matches, they clinched the gold medal in the final match Sunday night winning 5-4 over Team Jones from Winnipeg, Man.
