This Fort William Curling Club rink rose fast and furiously to rank amongst the best junior curlers in the world. Joining together in September of 1989, Jason Repay (skip), Aaron Skillen (third), Scott McCallum (second), Trevor Clifford (lead) and Jim Glena (coach) were a force to be reckoned with dominating local and regional events.


Representing Ontario at the 1991 Canada Winter Games the team put in a great effort, finishing fourth overall in their first national competition. With their sights set on the 1991 Canadian (Pepsi) Junior Championships, they claimed the Northern Ontario title with a 7-5 victory in the final game. At the nationals in Leduc, Alberta, their 4-1 round-robin record, and 7-4 semi-final game saw them face the host province in the final, defeating them 4-2 to become Canadian Junior Champions.


Moving into the international curling circuit for the first time, they added Darryl Cambly as their Fifth/Alternate. Following a bronze-medal performance at the 1991 Swiss International Spiel they represented Canada at the 1992 World Junior Curling Championships in Oberstdorf, Germany. Winning their first five games they advanced to the semi-finals, where their hard-fought 6-4 loss to the Swiss team earned them World Junior Bronze, the first such accomplishment by a junior team from northwestern Ontario.
