Erica Watts, is a 16 year old Red Deer resident, Grade 11 student at Hunting Hills High School and a competitive curler. Erica and her teammates (playing under the name of her skip – Holly Vincent) have been playing together since Erica was 7 years old and are one of the top teams in their age group in Calgary.
This season, Erica and her team have kept a busy competitive calendar while competing in both the Under 18 and Under 21 age groups at Bonspiels, while also competing in the Red Deer Ladies League. On December 2 – 4 weekend Erica and her teammates travelled to Medicine Hat to compete in the Junior Women’s (U21) Southern Playdowns getting knocked out in the C event semi-final. This past weekend (December 9-11), Erica and her team, lost out in the B event semi-final at the Crestwood U18 Bonspiel in Calgary.
