TEAM BIO

Flaxey broke onto the curling scene in Manitoba winning a provincial junior championship. She captured the 2009 Canadian mixed doubles championship playing third for Sean Grassie. The two represented Canada at the 2009 world mixed doubles championship and earned the bronze medal.

Flaxey then played competitively in Alberta for a few seasons before moving to Ontario in 2011 to skip her own team. The rink of Flaxey, Katie Cottrill, Lynn Kreviazuk and Morgan Court won the Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts title in 2014.

Kreviazuk previously played with Rachel Homan capturing the Canada Winter Games gold medal in 2007 and back-to-back provincial junior titles in 2009 and 2010. She also earned gold at the Canadian junior women’s championship and silver at the world juniors on Team Homan in 2010. Kreviazuk won her third consecutive Ontario junior title in 2011 on Clancy Grandy’s team.

Team Flaxey won the KW Fall Classic last season to qualify for the inaugural Champions Cup.

Team Flaxey’s breakthrough on tour came at the 2016 WFG Masters as the team stole their way through the tiebreaker, quarterfinals and the semifinals into the championship game against Team Homan. Flaxey defeated the defending champion 6-3 to capture her first career Grand Slam title.
