KELOWNA, B.C. -- Former world and Canadian curling champion Kelly Scott is making changes to her team.

Scott, who lost in the final of this year's Scotties Tournament of Hearts to Heather Nedohin, is looking for a new lead.

Scott's lead Jacquie Armstrong is stepping back from the sport to spend more time on work and with family, Scott told The Canadian Press in an e-mail.

Armstrong won the last three B.C. women's titles throwing lead stones for Scott.

Also, Scott's regular third Jeanna Schraeder is back with the team after taking the season off to have a baby.

Dailene Sivertson, who filled in at second in Schraeder's absence, won't return to the team next season, according to Scott.

Scott, Schraeder, Sasha Carter and Renee Simons won both the national and world championship in 2007.
