Career[edit]Edit

Juniors[edit]Edit

Horgan is a three time Northern Ontario junior champion skip, having won the provincial championship in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

In 2005, Horgan actually did not skip the Northern Ontario team, but threw last stones. Instead, the team's second, Jennifer Horgan held the broom. At the 2005 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, Horgan finished with a 7-5 record, just out of the playoffs. [1]

At the 2006 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, with Horgan at skip, they finished with a 7-4 record, tied for third place with Nova Scotia (skipped by Sarah Rhyno). This would mean they had to play in a tie-breaker match, which Nova Scotia would win. [2]

At the 2007 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, Horgan once again won seven games, and lost five, however, this would not be enough to make the playoffs. [3]

2008-2013[edit]Edit

In 2008, Horgan's team graduated to the women's level, and the team qualified for the 2008 Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The team finished with a 3-6 record.

Horgan's rink qualified for the 2009 Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts, having lost to Krista McCarville in the Northern Ontario final, which is good enough to qualify. The team finished with a 4-5 record.

Horgan won the Northern Ontario championship in December 2009, earning her team a right to play in the 2010 Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts. There, her rink went all the way to the final before losing to McCarville.

Horgan's rink returned to the 2011 Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts by winning the fourth and final slot at the Northern Ontario championship. They did much better at the provincial tournament, but were once again bested by the McCarville rink, this time in the semi-final.

Team Horgan had another slow start in their 2012 campaign, placing third at the Northern Ontario championship. However, they would have another successful tournament at that year's 2012 Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The team lost just two round robin games, and would eventually upset the previously undefeated Rachel Homan rink in the final. Homan missed a draw to the button to win the game on her last rock. At the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts Horgan and team would find difficulties through the week, finishing round robin with a 4-7 record.

Horgan's rink began the 2012-13 curling season well by winning the 2012 AMJ Campbell Shorty Jenkins Classic. However, her bid to return to the Scotties at the provincial 2013 Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts was unsuccessful, with the team finishing with a 4-5 record, missing the playoffs. At the 2013 Pomeroy Inn & Suites Prairie Showdown, the team went all the way to the finals, before losing in an extra end to Mirjam Ott, the World Champion at the time.

2013-present[edit]Edit

The Horgan rink secured a spot at the 2013 Road to the Roar, the Olympic pre-trials event. At the Road to the Roar, the team went 4-3 and lost the 'C' event final on last rock to Valerie Sweeting, who qualified for the Roar along withRenee Sonnenberg. Horgan defeated the top two seeds at the event, Shannon Kleibrink and Laura Crocker. Following the Pre-Trials, the team went undefeated at the Northern Ontario Scotties playdowns. By finishing 1st at the playdowns, the team competed at the 2014 Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The team had a disappointing run at the provincials that year, giving up key steals in their losses to finish with a 5-4 record and ultimately missing the playoffs for a second consecutive year.

The team was selected to represent Canada at the 3rd annual Yichun International Ladies Cup in Yichun, China from December 28th, 2013-January 1st, 2014. The team went 6-1 in the round-robin with their only loss coming from Silvana Tirinzoni of Switzerland in the opening draw. The team defeated Wang Bingyu in the semi-final and Jiang Yilun in the final to win the championship.

Personal life[edit]Edit

Outside of curling, Horgan is a chartered accountant with KPMG. Her brothers Jacob and Tanner are also successful Northern Ontario bantam-level curlers.
