Vernon’s Jim Cotter wins 6th B.C. men’s curling title


The Okanagan's Jim Cotter will represent B.C. at the Tim Hortons Brier for the third straight year as his Vernon rink defeated Sean Geall of New Westminster Sunday in the provincial final.

Cotter, backed up by third Brad Kuhn, second Tyrel Griffith and lead Rick Sawatsky, nailed down his sixth Purple Heart, and third in succession, after a 7-6 win over Sean Geall.

Cotter, representing the Vernon and Kelowna clubs, went unbeaten through the 16-team Canadian Direct Insurance provincial championship in Nelson.

Cotter, Griffith and Sawatsky teamed with John Morris to finish second at both the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings and the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier.

The B.C. team will compete in the Brier from March 5 to 13 in Ottawa.
