Briane Harris and Tory Harris Wiki, Biography

Harris currently works as a CAD Technician for EuroCraft Office Furnishings. She married Tory Harris in August 2022. Briane Harris (born March 11, 1992 as Briane Meilleur) is a Canadian curler from Petersfield, Manitoba. She currently plays lead on Team Kerri Einarson from Gimli, Manitoba. Currently, the Einarson team are the three-time reigning Scotties Tournament of Hearts champions, winning the title in 2020, 2021 and 2022. She has also won three Grand Slam of Curling events with the Einarson rink.

Harris had a fairly successful junior career playing third for Breanne Knapp, winning the Manitoba junior title in 2010 and 2011 and competing in the 2010 and 2011 Canadian Junior Curling Championships. She won the bronze medal in 2011.

She began her senior career as a skip in the 2011–12 season, and played in her first Grand Slam, the 2011 Manitoba Lotteries Women’s Curling Classic.

After playing for several different teams, she began to skip her own rink again in the 2016–17 and 2017–18 season. She competed in the 2017 Road to the Roar Canadian Olympic Curling Pre-Trials with Breanne Knapp, Janelle Vachon, and Sarah Neufeld, but the team missed out on a chance to qualify for the trials following losses to Julie Tippin and Krista McCarville.

For the 2018–19 season, Harris joined Kerri Einarson’s new team as the lead. The team gained some attention for being made up entirely of former skips. They began the season by winning three straight World Curling Tour events in three weeks: the 2018 Stu Sells Oakville Tankard, the inaugural Morris SunSpiel and then the Mother Club Fall Curling Classic with a fourth win at the Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Classic in October. In December, the team lost in the finals of the 2018 Canada Cup and 2018 National. Their strong play during the early part of the season earned them enough points to put team Einarson in the Wild Card game at the 2019 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. However the team lost to the lower ranked Casey Scheidegger rink. The team would rebound to have a strong finish at the end of the season, winning the 2019 Players’ Championship and losing in the final of the 2019 Champions Cup.

Defending champion Kerri Einarson opened the Canadian women’s curling championship with an 11-8 win over Quebec’s Laurie St-Georges on Friday in Kamloops, B.C. Einarson scored four points in the eighth end to take a commanding lead. Quebec shook hands after nine ends. Einarson’s team out of Manitoba’s Gimli Curling Club is chasing a fourth straight national title.

Only the Colleen Jones foursome from 2001 to 2004 has won four consecutive women’s championships. In other results in Friday evening’s opening draw, B.C.’s Clancy Grandy beat Prince Edward Island’s Marie Christianson 10-6, Nova Scotia’s Christina Black defeated Saskatchewan’s Robyn Silvernagle 12-7 and Kaitlyn Lawes’s wild-card team downed Alberta’s Kayla Skrlik 8-5.

The winner of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts on Feb. 26 represents Canada at the world championship March 18-26 in Sandviken, Sweden. Canadians coaching curling teams from other countries is a common sight at tournaments, but Grandy recruited a Swedish heavyweight.

Six-time world and reigning Olympic men’s champion skip Niklas Edin is coaching the host B.C. team in Kamloops. “He’s the best at what he does in the game, in my opinion,” Grandy said Friday before the win over Prince Edward Island.

“We were looking for some tactical help. Someone who could come out and provide that quick input. “We also really think his personality meshes well with our team. He’s got that really calm demeanor and that’s something we thought would work really well with our group.”

Edin, 37, is pacing himself following knee surgery in November. He tore the meniscus in his knee in October. While he returned to competition in January’s Canadian Open in Camrose, Alta., and reached the final, the injury afforded him the time to take on a coaching assignment.

“They just asked me and it was good timing for me to coach a little bit after my injury,” the Swede said. “We’ve got our own [men’s] worlds in April, so it was good timing and felt like a good opportunity and a fun challenge.”
