Career[edit]

1995-2005[edit]

Scott won the 1995 World Junior Curling Championships and Canadian Junior Curling Championships when she curled out of Manitoba. She was also runner up at the 1991 Canadian Junior Curling Championships when she played lead for Jill Staub. In 2005, Scott qualified for the 2005 Scott Tournament of Hearts, where she finished second in the round-robin. At the Olympic trials that year, Scott would lose in the final to Shannon Kleibrink.

2005-2011[edit]

The Scott team would participate at the 2005 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials, where they would finish first place in round robin with a 7-2 record. They would face Shannon Kleibrink in the final, and leading 7-5 after nine ends, would give up three in the tenth, losing the olympic bid to Kleibrink.

In March 2006, Scott won the 2006 Scott Tournament of Hearts. After leading the round robin with an 9-2 record, she beat Colleen Jones in the semi-final and then beat defending champion Jennifer Jones in the final with a solid 8-6 win. The Scott team went on to the 2006 Ford World Women's Curling Championship in Grande Prairie, Alberta where her team won the bronze medal.

At the 2006 Players' Championships, Scott scored a rare "Eight-ender" in one of her games against Cathy King. [1]

Scott defended her title at the 2007 Scotties Tournament of Hearts defeating Jan Betker's Saskatchewan team in the final. Later, she won the 2007 World Women's Curling Championship, defeating Denmark's team of Angelina Jensen 8-4 in final. Scott became the first female skip to win a gold medal at both a World Junior Championship and a World Championship.

Scott works at Nutri-Lawn, which is owned by her parents, as a Financial Officer. In the summer 2006 Kelly Scott quit her job with the city of Kelowna due to the heavy pressure of the competitive curling season. She is married to Chad Scott.

In 2009, Kelly Scott's team failed to represent B.C. at the Tournament of Hearts for the since time since 2004. This, coupled with a disappointing finish in the CTRS standings, prompted the team to remove Renee Simons from the team.[2]

Scott and the team would get the opportunity to compete in the 2009 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials, however would finish round robin last place, with a 1-6 record.

At the 2010 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Scott lost in the 3vs4 Page Playoff game to Ontario's Krista McCarville.[3]

For the second straight year at the British Columbia Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Scott defeated Kelley Law in the final to win the provincial championship. At the 2011 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Scott and team finished the round robin with a 7-4 record which found them in a tie-breaker, where they were defeated by Nova Scotia's Heather Smith-Dacey.

2011-current[edit]

For the 2011-2012 season, Scott's longtime third, Jeanna Schraeder left the team due to a pregnancy and to focus on family. Schraeder was replaced with three time British Columbia Junior Champion Dailene Sivertson.[4] Together the team would defeat Marla Mallett at the 2012 British Columbia Scotties Tournament of Hearts, earning the right to represent the province at the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The team would find difficulties with illness and lineup changes, but also found success at the event. They would finish round robin with an 8-3 record, which was enough to secure a second place finish, and earned a spot in the 1-2 game against Manitoba’s Jennifer Jones. The team would defeat Jones in the 1-2 game 7-5 advancing to the final.

Schraeder re-joined the team for the 2012-13 season at the third position, replacing Sivertson who moved to Saskatchewan to play lead for Amber Holland. The team also welcomed the addition of Sarah Wazney at the lead position, who replaced Jacquie Armstrong at lead, who became the team's alternate. The team won another provincial title, defeating Patti Knezevic in the final of the 2013 British Columbia Scotties Tournament of Hearts. At the 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts Scott led her team to a bronze medal finish.
