Some Old Faces Going to the Scott
Amber Holland out-curled Stephanie Lawton quite steadily throughout the Saskatchewan final to win the right to represent Saskatchewan at the Scott Tournament of Hearts in PEI. Top-seeded Lawton had dominated her pool and had handily won her page play-off. But the second-seeded Holland, who struggled to make it to the finals, both played and strategized superbly.
Elsewhere, Kelley Scott will once again be representing BC, and Shannon Kleibrink will be Alberta's representative at the Scott. As we noted earlier, Homan (a new winner from Ontario) will be there. Also, Cathy Overton-Clapham is skipping her own rink (sans Jones et al, who will return as reigning champions) and will be the Manitoba representative.
All-in-all, the 2011 Scott in PEI should be a fine mix of old and new.
