Middaugh, originally from Saskatchewan, first appeared at the Scott Tournament of Hearts in 1996 and finished 7-5. In her new province of Ontario at the 1999 Scott Tournament of Hearts, she played third for Kim Gellard, but finished 4-7. Sherry would go on to play at the 2001 Scott Tournament of Hearts. Sherry Middaugh would lead her team to the semi-finals where she lost to Kelley Law of British Columbia. At the 2002 Scott Tournament of Hearts, Middaugh was ousted once again in the semi-finals, this time to defending champion Colleen Jones. Middaugh failed to make the Scotts in 2003, but instead won the Canada Cup of Curling beating Kelley Law in the final. Middaugh qualified for the 2004 Scott Tournament of Hearts, but she lost in the semi-final to Quebec's Marie-France Larouche. At the 2008 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Middaugh lost in the semi-final to Manitoba's Jennifer Jones, her fourth semi-final loss. Middaugh also participated as a third for Laurel Kostuk at the 1986 Canadian Junior Championships and she won the 2003 JCV Skins Game. At the 2008 Scotties Tournament of Hearts Middaugh also won the Shot of the Week Award and a Bronze medal via a 9-8 loss to Manitoba's Jennifer Jones, in an Extra-End Semifinal. Jones would go on to win the 2009 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Victoria, B.C. as Team Canada.

Middaugh attended the 2011 Scotties Tournament of Hearts as the alternate for the Rachel Homan team. In 2012, she won her lone Grand Slam event of her career by winning the 2012 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic.

At the 2013 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials, the team started slowly with a 1-3 record. However, the team won 3 straight games to finish the round-robin tied for second at 4-3 with the Chelsea Carey and Rachel Homan rinks. Homan claimed second based on the draw shot challenge while Middaugh and Carey played a tiebreaker. The Middaugh rink found success defeating Carey in the tiebreaker and defeating Homan in the semi-finals. Middaugh's rink was unable to defeat the Jennifer Jones rink in the final, therefore claiming the silver medal at the event.

In 2019, Middaugh made her Canadian Senior Curling Championships debut at the 2019 Canadian Senior Curling Championships and placed second, losing in an extra end to Sherry Anderson.
