At the Scottish Curling Championship finals on Saturday 16 February 2019, Team Jackson were victorious over Team Muirhead and lifted the winners trophy for the first time. Following the conclusion of the game, Team Jackson met with the Performance Director and Head Coach of the British Curling performance programme along with the CEO of Scottish Curling, to discuss the next steps for them and, in particular, the forthcoming World University Games (WUGS) in Russia. It was agreed that WUGS had been set as the priority for Team Jackson in 2018-19 and due to the closeness with the World Women’s Championship, it would not be possible to properly prepare for the Worlds and compete in WUGS. Team Jackson had made a commitment to WUGS so it was concluded that another team would represent Scotland at the Worlds.
