Amber Holland, the 2011 Canadian women's curling champion, said Sunday that she has added Jolene Campbell, Brooklyn Lemon and Dailene Siverston. Holland broke up with Kim and Tammy Schneider and Heather Kalenchuk after the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Red Deer, Alta. The foursome had curled together for seven seasons, winning provincial championships in 2010 and 2011.
Holland stepped away from the team after it finished 6-5 at the recent Canadian women's curling championship, saying she was looking to go in a different direction. Campbell had served as the alternate with Holland's team for a number of years. Holland said Sunday her new team will curl together for the upcoming season.
"We'll see how things go from there,'' Holland said Sunday. "It's all about timing. We have the (2014 Winter Olympics) pre-trials in 2013 and we'll see how they go. The teams that don't make the Olympics will be looking at making changes.'' Campbell, a longtime skip, drops down to play third with Holland. Campbell skipped her own team at the 2012 Saskatchewan women's championship in Humboldt. Lemon also took part in the provincial women's championship as a third with Maryfield's Candace Chisholm.
Lemon shared in the 2012 Saskatchewan mixed title as a third with Langenburg's Jeff Hartung and captured the 2009 Saskatchewan junior women's championship as a skip. Lemon graduated into the women's ranks in 2012 after losing 7-4 to Saskatoon's Kristen Streifel in the junior women's provincial final.
Siverston played in 2012 as a second with B.C.'s Kelly Scott at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Scott was beaten 7-6 in the Canadian women's final by Alberta's Heather Nedohin. Siverston, a three-time B.C. junior women's champion, grew up in Saskatoon and contacted Holland about joining the team. "She was looking to move back to Saskatchewan,'' Holland said. "She had an opportunity to go back with Kelly, but she wanted to play where she grew up.''
Holland, who curled out of Kronau with her former team, expects to curl out of Regina with her new squad. Holland finished second at the 2011 world women's championship and missed the playoffs at the 2012 Canadian women's championship after returning as the defending national women's champion.
