Robyn Silvernagle is stepping aside temporarily from her curling team as she expects to become a mom.
It was announced Monday that Silvernagle and her husband Chad Guidinger are expecting a child this October.
The good news for the skip also means changes are coming to the Silvernagle team based out of Twin Rivers Curling Club when they return to the ice.
Longtime team member Jessie Hunkin will now move up to skip while Silvernagle is away. As well, Becca Hebert will be joining the team and will take over from Hunkin playing second position.
“We are excited to get back on the ice and get down to business!” the team stated on Facebook.
The squad has high hopes for the coming season, including hopes of qualifying for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
