Ottawa’s Team Rachel Homan and lead Lisa Weagle have parted ways, the team announced on Twitter Thursday night.
“It is with mixed emotions that we share news about upcoming changes to team Homan. Rachel, Emma and Joanne are sad to announce we are parting ways with Lisa,” the team said on their official Twitter account. “Over the years we’ve grown together and are so proud of everything we’ve accomplished.
“While this is a very difficult decision to make on many fronts, we are restructuring our front end to continue in our relentless pursuit of excellence.”
Weagle, 34, won three Scotties Tournament of Hearts (2013, 2014, 2017) and a world championship in 2017 with Team Homan. Weagle as well as Homan, third Emma Miskew and second Joanne Courtney represented Canada at the 2018 Olympics, finishing off the podium.
Homan, 30, and her team have lost back-to-back Scotties finals, falling to Alberta’s Chelsea Carey in 2019 and Manitoba’s Kerri Einarson last month in Moose Jaw, Sask.
Weagle has played with Homan since the 2010-11 season.
