International Women’s Day – Lauren Lenentine

Friday, March 8th is International Women’s Day and to celebrate, Sport PEI would like to recognize some of the women who are actively representing PEI as athletes! We asked them how they feel about being a leader for young female athletes on the island and what message they’d like to share.


Anyone watching the Scotties Tournament of Hearts this year should recognize our next athlete – Lauren Lenentine.


The New Dominion native earned her second straight silver medal from the Canadian championships playing lead as part of Team Jennifer Jones representing Manitoba in February. The 23-year-old captured gold medals from the World Junior Curling Championships in 2018 and 2020 representing Canada.


Lauren’s curling career has moved quick, having already attended four Scotties, including two under Olympic gold medalist skip Jennifer Jones. The Cornwall Curling Club product didn’t expect to be here already and wishes she would have raised those expectations for herself if she had the chance.


“If I could tell my younger self one thing, it would be to dream big,” says Lauren. “Anything is possible if you set your mind to it and work hard to achieve it.”


Lauren hopes to see more young Island athletes follow their passion, including her younger sister Ella, who represented PEI as skip at the 2023 Canada Winter Games and recently won the PEI junior curling championship. Lauren’s message to young female athletes is simple but important: “Work hard, give it your all, and have fun while doing it!”


Sport PEI is also hosting a “She’s Good” event, sponsored by Maritime Electric, on Friday at Bluefield High for girls in grades 8-12. For more information, contact To register, click here:
