USA Curling is excited to announce Team Sinclair as one of the three women’s teams in the High Performance Program this upcoming season.

The team has set a lineup of Jamie Sinclair (skip), Monica Walker (vice-skip), Cora Farrell (second) and Elizabeth Cousins (lead).

After Monica Walker made the difficult decision to step away from competitive curling prior to the start of last season, Jamie Sinclair is excited to have her back on the ice.

“I’m thrilled to say Monica Walker is back from retirement and that we are reuniting for a run at the 2022 Winter Olympics,” Sinclair said. “This combination of seasoned veterans and fresh talent is ready to fight its way to the top.”

Though young, Cousins and Farrell have proven their commitment to success will be an invaluable asset to the team. Both players have competed in a combined 13 US Junior National Championships, as well as a handful of Women’s National Championships.

While Walker is excited to help her teammates further develop and transition into women’s competitive curling, she is eager rejoin forces with Sinclair.

“Any success that I’ve ever experienced in women’s curling has been with Jamie. Together we are three-time National Champions and 2018 Grand Slam of Curling Players’ Champions. I have the utmost respect for Jamie’s talent as a player and I look forward to supporting her in a new role on this team," Walker said. "I’m really excited to see what this squad can do.”
