As well, Team Lenentine said that third Kristie Rogers will be moving to Newfoundland and Labrador to attend Memorial University, and will also be continuing to play Juniors.

Team Jones issued the following today on their @TeamKJones Twitter account:

New look for Team Jones 2018/2019: We are so excited to announce our newest addition for the next season, welcoming Lauren Lenentine from PEI! We wish our third, the best of luck playing with next season, and thank you for all the memories!!

Team Lenentine issued the following statement today on their Facebook page:


We would like to announce that our team will be making some changes next season. Both Kristie and Lauren will be attending university off-island. Kristie will be moving to Newfoundland to attend Memorial and Lauren will be relocating to Halifax to pursue her education. We are happy that both will continue to play Juniors in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.

We would like to acknowledge our coach Pat Quilty. He saw things in us that we didn’t see in ourselves. He has sacrificed many hours away from home and work for our benefit. He always believed in us. Our success would not have been possible without his ongoing dedication and for that we will always be grateful. Thank you Pat!

Our team would like to thank our amazing sponsors, family, friends, and all our supporters for all the support we have received over the previous years. We are proud of our achievements and the opportunities we had as a team, and none of these would have been possible without you all.

We have had a great 9 seasons together as a team. We represented our province and the Cornwall Curling Club with pride at each event we attended. We are excited to see what the future holds for us all, but we know that we will remain lifelong friends!

Once again, thank you for the continued support!

Lauren, Kristie, Breanne, Rachel, and Pat

Montague’s Nathaniel Shaw team clinches U13 playoff round “A” semifinal spot

Two round robin draws have been played and one, at 9:30 am Sunday, remains to be played at the PEI Under 13 Curling Championship at the Cornwall Curling Club. Some of the 12 teams entered have now played both of their round robin games, and others have played just one. One rink, the Nathaniel Shaw team from Montague, has two wins in the “H” pool and is assured a first-place finish in that pool, and will advance to the “A” section semi-finals of the three section championship round, with their next game at 1 pm Saturday.

Two teams, the Ella Lenentine rink from Cornwall, and the defending champion Clara Jack team from Cornwall and the Silver Fox, are tied at 1-0 atop the “S” pool, while the Anderson MacDougall squad from the Silver Fox are 1-0 in the “O” pool, and the Cruz Pineau foursome from the Silver Fox and the Charlottetown Curling Club are 1-0 in the “T” pool. The Pineau rink made it to the final last year, losing by a single point in a closely-fought battle.

In this event, all teams make it to the Championship Round, with the teams who come first in their pool going to the “A” section, the second place teams going to “B” and the third place to “C”. The semi-finals go at 1 pm Saturday and 9:30 am Sunday, with the finals in all three sections taking place at 1 pm Sunday. Games in this event are six ends.

Earning her gold – Lauren Lenentine pleased with her role on world junior women’s championship team (Guardian)

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – It’s quite a thing being the best in the world, even if you didn’t get to play.

That’s where New Dominion’s Lauren Lenentine stands after she was an alternate  with Canada’s junior women’s world championship rink from Nova Scotia.

The Canadian women’s team at the world junior curling championships in Aberdeen, Scotland, displays its trophy and gold medals after winning the world title. Left to right is alternate and New Dominion native Lauren Lenentine, lead Lindsay Burgess, second Karlee Burgess, coach Andrew Atherton, third Kristen Clarke and skip Kaitlyn Jones from the Halifax, N.S.-based rink. – Submitted

“It’s still hard to believe. It hasn’t set in yet. I didn’t play and it was and wasn’t (difficult). I got used to it pretty quickly and learned so much sitting on the bench,” said Lenentine, who skipped her foursome to the P.E.I. junior women’s title and a berth in the Canadian juniors.

Lenentine, 17, said watching meant seeing the game from a different perspective, absorbing how other teams play and understanding how coaches approach curling.

“There are an infinite number of ways to play the game,” she said. “The experience is going to help me be a better curler.”

Next up for the soon-to-be Bluefield High School grad is a curling camp next month in Calgary, Alta., then playing in the Champions Cup where she’s attending as an alternate again with her world championship mates later in April, also in Calgary.

All that in hopes of another shot at the worlds, maybe this time representing P.E.I.

“That would be an added bonus,” said Lenentine. “I’m able to say the motivation to return is huge. I had such a good time I want to re-live it.”
