Curling team announcements for 2018-19 season

With the future of Team Jacobs up in the air, skip Brad Jacobs was happy to announce that after a 2-hour meeting of hard talk, he and the guys all decided to stay together for another four years.

Back for another season, it’s our annual curling team tracker. This year marks the conclusion of an Olympic cycle, so we can expect a frenzy of movement ahead of the new quadrennial.
