Homan is streaking

Perry Lefko has a profile of what is possibly the hottest team heading into tomorrow's Scotties start in Kingston, that being Rachel Homan's gang from Ottawa. All they've done is win their last 24 straight.

"We've definitely exceeded what we thought we could do," Homan said. "We're certainly taking it one game at a time. We're not looking beyond that. We're just looking at winning every game we're in."
Homan said her team pinpointed earning a trials berth as its primary objective entering the season. If her team maintains its current position on the CTRS rankings, it will gain an entry.
"We're just trying to build as a team and learn from the losses," she said. "We knew as long as we could make the playoffs in all the events and make lots of shots, then we'd have a chance (at qualifying for the trials)."
Of course seeing as how he's writing for, Lefko also throws in a plug details the fact that Homan can win a $100,000 bonus by capturing the second leg of the women's Grand Slam at the Players' Championship in April.

If the Homan team wins the Players' Championship in April in Toronto, it will collect a $100,000 bonus provided by Sportsnet for sweeping the final two Grand Slam of Curling events.
"Sure it's fun to think about the what-ifs, but other than that we're just focused on nationals right now, and once nationals are over with we can take it from there," Homan told

Homan and company start off against Newfoundland & Labrador tomorrow at 2 p.m.
