SPORTSNET:
Earle Morris returns to coach son's...
Team Morris named Earle Morris as the rink's coach for the upcoming season. Morris is the father of skip John Morris, who joined reigning Brier champions Pat Simmons, Carter Rycroft and Nolan Thiessen during the off-season after Kevin Koe parted ways with the trio. Earle Morris coached his son to Canadian junior championships in 1998 and 1999 and recently helped guide Rachel Homan's team to consecutive Scotties titles in 2013 and 2014. He also served as the coach for Australia's national team from 2006-08. Morris played in three Brier tournaments (1980, 1982 and 1985) for three different provinces. “Even though Earle was planning on spending next season away from the competitive curling scene, the chance to coach his son, along with our relaxed schedule for this season was too enticing...
OTTAWA CITIZEN:
Curling rink of dreams for Outaouais...
La Pêche Curling Club wants to bring curling to the people of the Outaouais, but with two rejections from local municipalities so far, its odds are looking slim. The club has been sweeping stones past the hog line (curling-speak for taking shots at the net) at La Pêche Sports Complex since 2005, but its members are tired of limited ice time and sharing the rink with hockey players and figure skaters whose skates, they say, damage the quality of the ice. So the club put together a proposal for a brand-spanking-new curling rink in the Outaouais with a price tag of upwards of $3 million. But with club coffers of only about $24,000, and only about $40,000 raised for the project itself, they need a lot more help. The club's proposal estimated...
FULL GRANITE JACKET:
USA named their high performance...
Here's the list. The men's group has 10, the women's has eight, and there are 11 junior curlers. We'll start with the women: Nina Spatola, Becca Hamilton and Tara Peterson, the nucleus who won the 2014 USA championship, were named. Their lead Sophie Brorson didn't make the cut, Team Pottinger lead Tabitha Peterson (Tara's sister) did. It sounds like they will form teams next month, but I I think there's your A team. That would mean the other four — Aileen Sormunen, Jamie Sinclair, Monica Walker and Vicky Persinger — would be the B team.In terms of the athlete pool, I didn't see many surprises. Deb McCormick was in the running and she has been the face of USA curling for over a decade, but I guess it was time for to let the younger crowd take over.On the men's side ... relax,...

Morris announces curling sabbatical...
No Mo Johnny... unless... John Morris has spoken. The finalist from both the Brier and the Canadian Olympic Trials has issued a statement today on his immediate curling future, and here it is: This ad appears in our April issue After a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided to take a step back from the game of curling next year. I had the tremendous pleasure of playing with three great, genuine teammates in Jim Cotter, Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky as we made it farther than I think anyone would have predicted for a team playing its first year together. You were all amazing, as was our coach, Pat Ryan, and our alternates Jody Epp and Jason Gunnlaugson. I am extremely proud of our squad for what we accomplished, and would like to thank my guys for helping me recover my passion and...
GRASSROOTS CURLING:
...
I miss curling. There, I said it. I know it's summer here in Ontario, and I should be grateful for the decidedly ice-unfriendly weather, and that if I really, really wanted to go throw some rocks, I could probably find a club that has summer ice and leagues… But, well, it's not the same as stepping out into the cold, starting the car with heater full blast, scraping the windshield,
