CareerEdit

Silvernagle represented Saskatchewan at the 2005 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, finishing the event with a 7-5 record and missing the playoffs.

Silvernagle has skipped her own team since the 2009–10 curling season. Her team won the 2010 Cornerstone Credit Union Ladies Cash Bonspiel.[1] After joining Brett Barber's rink as a third for the 2012–13 curling season and then the Brenda Goertzen rink as fourth during the 2014–15 curling season, Silvernagle skipped her own team for the 2015–16 curling season. Her new team found some success winning the qualifier and coming third overall in the 2016 Saskatchewan Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The next year Silvernagle's team lost the final of the 2017 Saskatchewan Scotties Tournament of Hearts to Penny Barker.[2] After winning the 2017 Boundary Ford Curling Classic,[3] Silvernagle once again lost the Saskatchewan Scotties final, this time in an extra end against Sherry Anderson.[4]

For the 2018–19 curling season, Silvernagle and lead Kara Thevenot added veteran third Stefanie Lawton and second Jessie Hunkin to their team.[5] Silvernagle's team had a strong start to the season, winning the 2018 Red Deer Curling Classic and Saskatchewan Women's Curling Tour events in Humboldt and Saskatoon.[6] With the 2019 Canadian Open being held in North Battleford, Silvernagle qualified for her first Grand Slam event as the sponsor's exemption.[7] Silvernagle qualified for the playoffs with a 3–1 record in the triple knockout format, before losing to Silvana Tirinzoni in the quarter-final.[8]

Silvernagle won the 2019 Saskatchewan Scotties Tournament of Hearts with a steal in the final end against Sherry Anderson, her first provincial title.[9] Representing Saskatchewan at the 2019 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Silvernagle went 8–3 in the round robin and championship pools, before eventually losing the semi-final to Ontario and winning the bronze medal. The rink had semi-final and quarterfinal finishes at the 2019 Players' Championship and the 2019 Champions Cup respectively.

Team Silvernagle missed the playoffs in the first two Slams of the 2019–20 season, the Masters and the Tour Challenge. She also competed in her first Canada Cup where her team finished with a 1-5 record. They defended their provincial title at the 2020 Saskatchewan Scotties Tournament of Hearts when they once again bested Sherry Anderson in the final. At the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Team Silvernagle led Saskatchewan to a 6–5 record, finishing in fifth. It would be the team's last event of the season as both the Players' Championship and the Champions Cup Grand Slam events were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[10] On March 11, 2020, the team announced that Lawton would be stepping back from competitive curling and Thevenot would be leaving the team.[11] Five days later, Silvernagle and Hunkin announced that Kristen Streifel and Dayna Demers would be joining them for the following season.[12]
