CURlInG ACROss ThE GlObE

Curling opportunities exist for males and females of all age groups. Twentyfour-pound “junior stones” are available for younger children to use. The game has equal appeal as both a social outlet and a competitive sport. Recreational curling competitions, called “bonspiels,” are organized for men, women, couples, seniors and juniors. Local clubs have regular leagues for these same constituencies. “Open” events feature curlers of all ages and both genders competing in one competition. Curlers come from all walks of life, and value the special camaraderie integral to the sport. Curling is played in 40 states across the United States. It is a winter sport, but it is being played more and more in warmer climates with the growth of indoor ice facilities. There are approximately 16,000 curlers in the U.S., and 165 clubs across the U.S. Wisconsin has the largest concentration of curlers, with nearly 4,000, while the Grand National region along the East Coast now boasts close to 4,000 as well from its member clubs while Minnesota reports around 3,500. There also are substantial clubs in the Great Lakes region, Seattle and Fairbanks, Alaska, and even in Florida with the Panthers Curling Club in Coral Springs debuting in 2010, thanks to the TV expsoure the sport received on NBC during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The fastest growing areas in the past 10 years have been the Mountain Pacific region in the west and the Great Lakes region in the upper Midwest. California, a member of the MoPac region, now has five active curling clubs.

WhAT Is CURlInG? Curling is a team game, where all four team members’ efforts contribute directly to each shot. Teams can be composed of both sexes and all ages, and like golf, curling is a lifetime sport. A curler at any skill level, like a golfer, finds that his or her skills decline only gradually from about age 45 onward. A national class curler, like the pro golfer, realizes that once the physical aspects are mastered, the mental aspect of the game separates the good player from the champion. To continue with the golf analogy, it can be said that the curler who is at the height of his or her game has the same edge as the golfer who is sinking the key putts: great nerves, will to win, and mental toughness. historical and Descriptive notes It is generally agreed that curling was developed in Scotland in the 16th century. The climate in Scotland was colder then, and curling took place on the many marshes (since drained). Scottish farmers curled on the frozen marshes using “channel stones,” which were naturally smoothed by the water’s action. The principles of the game were similar to the modern game, although there were many differences in rules and equipment. The spirit of curling evolved in the early centuries in Scotland. It is this spirit of honorable competition followed by egalitarian sociality that made curling a special game in curlers’ minds. An excerpt from “The Spirit of Curling:” “Curlers play to win but never to humble their opponents. A true curler would prefer to lose rather than win unfairly ... while the main object of the game is to determine the relative skill of the players, the spirit of the game demands good sportsmanship, kindly feeling, and honorable conduct.” Scottish immigrants brought the game with them to North America, first to Canada around 1759, then to the United States around 1832. By 1855, curling clubs flourished in New York City, Detroit, Milwaukee and Portage, Wis. Curling in the rest of Europe developed in the 20th century. Two developments ensured that the modern game would be marked by a high degree of physical skill and mental toughness: 1. the standardization of the stone, and 2. indoor, refrigerated ice. The modern stone is round, and about 42 pounds. Curling is played, for the most part, on indoor, refrigerated ice, which helps ensure a fast, consistent and predictable playing surface. The Game A game is made up of 10 ends (like innings). An end consists of each team member shooting (delivering) two rocks, or stones, alternately with the opponent’s player at the same position. When all 16 rocks have been delivered, the score for that end is determined. A 12-foot circle (the “house”) is the scoring area. For each stone closer to the center of the circles (the tee) than any of the opponent’s, one point is scored. The team scoring shoots first in the next end, giving the opponent the “hammer,” or last shot of that end. Teams will sometimes ignore taking a point to retain the next end’s hammer. The sheet of ice (playing surface) is 16' 5" wide and 150 feet long, set up to accommodate play in both directions. Most curling takes place in curling clubs, which commonly have two to six sheets of ice. Hockey arenas are also used as temporary curling rinks; they accommodate up to six sheets. All four players shoot two rocks per end, beginning with the player referred to as the “lead.” The “second” shoots next, and then the “third,” or “vice skip.” The skip usually shoots the last rocks, and calls the strategy for the game. The skip decides on shot selection, and “reads” the curl in the ice for the shooter. The shooter must be accurate in three functions: 1. Aim (at the broom) 2. “Weight” (velocity imparted to the stone) 3. Imparting the correct “handle” (curl) to each shot Shots are called either to stop at a certain point on the sheet (“draws” or “guards”) or to have enough weight to strike another rock out of play (“takeouts” or “hit and rolls”).

12

WhAT Is CURlInG? Each running stone curls, or curves, as it proceeds down the ice based on the twist given the handle during the delivery. The amount of curl varies based on the ice surface and the speed of the rock. The curl allows for better control of the stone and also provides a means to shoot around guards. sweeping—with either a straw broom, hog hair or horse hair brush, or synthetic brush—adds the element of fitness to curling because, to be effective, sweeping must be very vigorous. Sweeping slightly melts the ice, which reduces the friction between the running stone and the ice. The result is that the stone will curl less, and slide farther. Sweeping is called for when the stone has not been delivered firmly enough, and/or when the shot is aimed “narrow,” or inside the broom target. Sweeping can help a rock slide up to an additional 15 feet. Top teams control most shots by using aim and weight “within the sweeping zone.” strategy is a major part of curling. Shots are played with an eye to the last rocks of each end, not simply placed at the center of the circles. The strategy can be rather complex. Innovations are constantly being made and adopted when the innovators win, similar to other sports where strategy and the game plan plays a major role. It is common for games between national-class teams to be very close, with both skips jockeying for the last shot in the last end.

ThE AbCs OF CURlInG

13

WhAT Is CURlInG?

In curling, all four players of a team are involved in each of their team’s shots. While the skip, or captain, holds his or her broom for a target and calls the strategy for the shooter, the other two players sweep the stone’s path when deemed necessary. Sweeping clears the ice of any frost or debris that might slow the stone down or send it off course. Sweeping also polishes the ice, creating a thin layer of moisture that reduces friction and allows the rock to go farther and straighter (up to 15 feet farther with vigorous sweeping). The “sweepers” are in the best position to judge whether or not the delivered stone has enough momentum to reach its target, while the person in the house can best judge the line and call for sweeping if the stone is curling too much. Sweeping is allowed between the tee lines, and beyond the far tee line by only one player per team. All four players may sweep at the same time when the stone is between the tee lines. The player in charge of the house may sweep an opponent’s stone once it passes the tee line. Players may also sweep any of their own stones that have been set into motion by the delivered stone. By the 1990s, the skill of top players had progressed to such a point that, once a team got a small lead, they were simply knocking out one another’s rocks repeatedly, which translated to “boring games” for many spectators. To spice up the game, the World Curling Federation introduced the Free Guard Zone Rule (or Moncton Rule, since it was first tested in competition in Moncton, New Brunswick). Simply put, the Free Guard Zone Rule specifies that players are allowed to bump—but not remove—the first four rocks of a given end if they come to rest between the hog line and the tee line, excluding the house (i.e., the guard zone). Any rock touching the tee line outside the house, or biting (touching) the 12-foot ring at the front of the house, is not considered to be in the Free Guard Zone and may be taken out by the opposing lead player. When teams take advantage of the Free Guard Zone, there generally are more rocks in play throughout an end, and teams have a much better chance of coming back from a deficit. In turn, strategies have evolved that are significantly different from the old “hit” game, and the sport has become much more interesting for the majority of spectators, as well as for the players.

CURlInG EqUIPMEnT Clothing: Loose fitting, several layers, sweaters, pants, kilts, caps. Matching uniforms for many competitions. shoes: Special curling shoes are common but not mandatory. Shoes should grip the ice well for walking. Smooth soles are easy to clean to minimize dirt on the ice. For the delivery, extremely slippery surfaces such as Teflon are used on the sliding foot to generate a long, smooth-sliding follow through. Some “sliders” are built into shoes, while others are strapped on over the sole. broom/brush: Commercially manufactured for curling. The straw brooms, synthetic brushes, and short bristled brushes are all effective. stones: Made of a rare, close and evenly grained granite quarried primarily on Scotland’s Ailsa Craig, with handles attached. Standardized, weighing 42 pounds, and provided by the curling clubs.

GlOssARY OF CURlInG TERMs bACk lInE – the line at the back of the house. Rocks completely beyond the line are out of play. bOnsPIEls – curling tournaments. bROOM – the instrument used to sweep the ice. Brooms with synthetic heads are most common. bURnED ROCk – a shooting team’s rock that has been fouled (touched by a player or equipment) while in motion. It is removed from play. CEnTERlInE – the line dividing and running the length of the sheet of ice. CURl – a turn of the rock’s handle upon release makes the rock curl, or curve, as it travels down the ice. The rock curls in the direction of the turn. DElIvERY – the release of the curling stone by the shooter. DRAW – a rock that stops in front of or in the house. EnD – One end is complete when all 16 rocks (eight per team) have been thrown to one end of the sheet. A game is usually eight ends, or about two hours. Championship games are 10 ends, or about 2 1/2 hours. After each end, the score is determined. FREEzE – a draw that finishes in front of and up against another rock. GUARD – a rock between the hog line and the house used to thwart the opposition from hitting a rock in the house. hACk – a rubber foothold from which curlers deliver the rock. It is about 125 feet from the scoring area. hAMMER – the last rock of each end. hEAvY ICE – when the ice is “slow” and the rocks have to be thrown harder. hIT & ROll – a shot designed to take out an opponent’s rock and then roll the shooter to a designated spot, such as behind a guard. hOG lInEs – located 21 feet from each tee. A rock must be released before the near hog line, and travel beyond the far hog line, or it is removed from play. hOUsE – the round scoring area, 12 feet in diameter, with concentric circles of four and eight feet in diameter inside. hURRY – a command shouted by the skip or shooter to tell the sweepers to sweep. kEEn ICE – when the ice is “fast” and less momentum is needed on the rock. lEAD – the player who delivers the first two rocks of each end, alternating with the opponent’s lead. nARROW – a rock delivered inside the intended line of delivery. PEEl – a shot to remove a guard, or guards. PORT – an opening through which teams try to draw or shoot through. RAIsE – a draw that raises another rock into the house. RInk – a curling team, which consist of four players, the skip, third (vice-skip), second, and lead. All players are involved in every shot, with one shooting, two sweeping, and one calling strategy. Two rinks play against each other. ROCks – also known as stones, are made of rare, dense, polished granite. Each rock weighs 42 pounds. sCORInG – only one rink scores per end, that being the rink with the rock(s) closest to the center of the house. The team with the highest score at the end of a game wins. The maximum score in each end is eight, which is very rare. Typically, one to three points are scored per end.

GlOssARY OF CURlInG TERMs sECOnD – the player who delivers the second two rocks of each end, alternating with the opponent’s second. shEET – the 150-ft. long ice playing area. The sheet’s design allows play in both directions. skIP – player who holds the broom as a target for shots by the other three players. Skips are team strategists and must study–or read–the ice, judge the amount of curl, and call the shots. Skips usually throw the last two rocks of each end. slIDER – worn on the sliding foot, in the delivery of a stone to allow for long, smooth motion and follow through. sTRAIGhT ICE – when the ice is not curling much. sWEEPInG – players sweep to make the rock travel farther, or to keep it from curling too much. Good sweepers can increase the distance a stone travels by more than 10 feet. Sweeping creates a thin film of water under the rock that allows it to glide easier. Two players are ready to sweep each shot. “sWInGY” ICE – when the ice is curling a lot. TAkEOUT – a rock that removes another rock from play.

ThIRD – the player who delivers the third two rocks of each end, alternating with the opponent’s third. The player who holds the broom for the skip, and who assists the skip with game strategy. Also known as a vice skip. WEIGhT – the momentum, or force, behind a rock as it glides down the ice. WIDE – a rock delivered outside the line of delivery.

CURlInG’s OlYMPIC hIsTORY The first Olympic demonstration was in 1924, in Chamonix, France, where men’s teams from England, France and Sweden competed. England won the gold, and Sweden the silver. Games at this time were 18 ends long versus 10 today. This event was most recently recognized as the first time curling was an Olympic medal sport. However, the sport would not have full medal status again until the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Curling was next a demonstration sport in 1932, in Lake Placid, N.Y. Eight men’s teams competed–four from Canada and four from the United States. The U.S. teams came from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan and New York. Canada won the round robin competition, taking 12 games to the USA’s four. Games were 16 ends long. After a long absence, curling returned to the Olympics as an official demonstration in 1988, in Calgary, Canada. For the first time, a women’s competition was included. Canada won the women’s event, followed by Sweden and Norway. On the men’s side, Norway took the gold, followed by Switzerland and Canada. (Bronze medals were awarded to the team that lost in the playoffs to the eventual champion.) The U.S. men’s and women’s teams both finished fourth. Curling was again part of the Olympic demonstration sport program in 1992, in Albertville, France. This time, Germany won the women’s gold, followed by Norway and Canada. A bronze medal game was held, with Canada defeating Denmark. Switzerland took the men’s championship, with Norway earning the silver medal and the USA defeating Canada for the bronze medal. The USA’s team included Bud Somerville, Mike Strum, Bill Strum and Tim Somerville, all from Superior, Wis. (The U.S. women failed to earn a berth in the Olympic competition in 1992.)

CURlInG’s OlYMPIC hIsTORY In Salt Lake City in 2002, curling was a medal sport on the Olympic program for the third time. The U.S. men, led by Tim Somerville, finished seventh, while the women’s team, skipped by Kari Erickson, missed a bronze medal by just a few rocks. The Pete Fenson rink based out of Bemidji, Minn., won U.S. curling’s first Olympic medal when the team defeated Great Britain to win the bronze medal at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy. The U.S. women’s team, led by Cassie Johnson, struggled in its opening games and finished eighth overall. Canada’s Brad Gushue rink would capture the men’s elusive gold medal defeating Finland, while the Anette Norberg team from Sweden added to its collection of medals by defeating Switzerland for the gold. In 2010 at the Olympic Games in Vancouver, 2006 Olympic bronze medalist John Shuster and three-time Olympian Debbie McCormick (1998, 2002, 2010) skipped their teams at the 5,000-seat Vancouver Olympic Center. It was a tough week as the teams battled through the round robin. Unfortunately, both would finish in 10th place and out of playoff contention. Canada’s Kevin Martin rink would capture the men’s gold over Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud. On the women’s side, Sweden’s Anette Norberg rink came from behind to overtake Canada’s Cheryl Bernard to repeat as women’s Olympic champions. In the bronze-medal matches, Switzerland’s Ralph Stoeckli outlasted Sweden’s Niklas Edin in the men’s game while China won its first Olympic medal in curling when Bingyu Wang defeated Switzerland’s Mirjam Ott. Curling was officially a demonstration sport three times, but there were also “domestic exhibitions” (host country participants only) in 1948 (St. Moritz, Switzerland) and 1964 (Innsbruck, Austria).

OlYMPIC hIsTORY

OlYMPIC REsUlTs – MEn

PARAlYMPIC hIsTORY Organized wheelchair curling in the United States began in the 1990s at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle. Since then, the sport has made great advancements. The first world wheelchair curling championship took place in 2002 in Sursee, Switzerland. Wheelchair curling debuted as a medal sport at the 2006 Paralympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy. USA’s team, led by James Pierce, finished in seventh place. By 2008, Team USA had reached the podium to claim the program’s first medal when the Americans earned bronze at the World Wheelchair Championship. This represented the first and only world or Paralympic medal for USA to date. In 2010, wheelchair curling was a medal sport for the second time at the Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver. Team USA, led by Augusto Perez, improved to a fourth-place finish with much of the same team members. While wheelchair curling is still growing in the United States, the program has made great strides in improving on the world scene at international bonspiels and championships.

Team World rectified its humbling loss in the 2011 Continental Cup with a 235-165 defeat of Team North America at the 2012 Continental Cup, which took place Jan. 12-15 at the Langley Events Centre in Langley, British Columbia. American curlers Patti Lank, Nina Spatola, Caitlin Maroldo, Mackenzie Lank, Pete Fenson, Shawn Rojeski, Joe Polo and Ryan Brunt teamed up with four Canadian teams for the six-team North Amerian contingent to take on six teams from Europe and Asia under one umbrella as Team World. The competition was close after the first day came to a close, with Team World holding a 30-24 lead. Team World, led by skips Bingyu Wang (China), Anette Norberg (Sweden), Eve Muirhead (Scotland), Tom Brewster (Scotland), Thomas Ulsrud (Norway) and Niklas Edin (Sweden), maintained its lead after two days of competition. Day three saw Team World start to break away from North America, which included Canada’s teams skipped by Amber Holland, Stefanie Lawton, Glenn Howard and Jeff Stoughton. Team World secured 104 points that day as they won the “A” Skins, “B” Skins and singles competitions. The final day of competition featured the “C” skins for the men and the women with many points up for grabs.

WORlD WhEElChAIR ChAMPIOnshIP 2012 World Wheelchair Championship Feb. 18-25, 2012 • Chuncheon, south korea After a strong start to the week, things unraveled for Team USA on the final day of the round robin of the 2012 World Wheelchair Championship at the Uiam Ice Rink in Chuncheon, South Korea. USA’s team of Patrick McDonald (Orangevale, Calif.), David Palmer (Mashpee, Mass.), James Joseph (New Hartford, N.Y.), Penny Greely (Green Bay, Wis.) and Tim Kelly (Rockford, Ill.) finished fifth in the field of 10 teams. The 6-4 overall finish qualifies the U.S. for the 2013 World Wheelchair Championship and earns pivotal 2014 Paralympic-qualifying points for the Americans. “I couldn’t be more proud of them,” said Steve Brown (Madison, Wis.), Team USA head coach. “Here’s a team that was so inexperienced and had really hardly ever played together. Their team dynamics have been fantastic. Their effort throughout the year, their practice and preparation just exceeded all their expectations. Obviously, it’s going to be extremely frustrating at this point to have played so well and then lose. All four games they lost, every single game was lost on the last shot so it is just really tough for them.” The Americans won their first five games but lost the next three out of four to finish the round robin with a 6-3 record – tied for fourth place with Slovakia. In the tiebreaker game to reach the playoffs, Team Slovakia stole two points in the final end of action to win the game.

USA’s first curling team to play at the inaugural Winter Youth Olympic Games was led by 16-year-old Korey Dropkin (Southborough, Mass.) as his team defeated Daniel Dudt’s rink, 10-1, to win the Youth Olympic Games Trials held Nov. 18-21 at the Grafton Curling Club in Grafton, N.D. Dropkin and his team of Thomas Howell (Brick, N.J.) and identical twin sisters Sarah and Taylor Anderson (Broomall, Pa.) became members of Team USA for the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games Jan. 13-22 in Innsbruck, Austria. “My teammates are amazing. They are great sweepers and great shooters. I can also trust my vice skip to run the house when I’m shooting,” Dropkin said.

However, that single would prove to be the only point the team would score as Dropkin’s team rattled off nine straight points, prompting Dudt’s team to concede the win. Tied 1-1, Dropkin took advantage of a light draw by Dudt in the third end to draw for the deuce. Constant pressure with plenty of rocks in the house from the Dropkin rink haunted the Dudt team in the fourth end. Dudt failed to execute on both of his attempts in that end, resulting in a steal of three for Dropkin’s team. More pressure in the fifth end by Dropkin’s team resulted in Dudt coming up short with his draw and four more points were stolen, which proved too large of a lead for the Pennsylvania/North Dakota rink to overcome. “If it couldn’t be us, we’re glad that they won it. They deserve it,” Dudt said. “It still hurts, but it was a great experience.”

2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games Jan. 13-22, 2012 • Innsbruck, Austria

eam USA’s quest for gold came to an abrupt stop in the quarterfinals at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games at the Innsbruck Exhibition Centre Curling Hall. After finishing the round robin with a perfect 7-0 record, USA’s team of Korey Dropkin (Southborough, Mass.), Sarah Anderson (Broomall, Pa.), Thomas Howell (Brick, N.J.) and Taylor Anderson (Broomall, Pa.) lost 7-5 to Italy in the quarterfinals to finish fifth overall in team competition. Switzerland went on to win team gold with a 6-4 defeat of Italy. “The first half we didn’t really come in strong. The other team got a couple of lucky shots, and we didn’t really make our shots,” Dropkin said. “The second half we stepped it up with a change of strategy. We played a lot more guards and we started making more of our shots and tried to work our way back and didn’t quite get it there at the end.” Next up for the Americans in the inaugural Winter Youth Olympic Games was teaming up with a curler from a different country in the mixed doubles component. Dropkin and Russian teammate Marina Verenich would pick up USA’s first-ever medal in curling at this event when they defeated Japan’s Mako Tamakuma and Korea’s Minhyeon Yoo, 6-5, in an extra end to earn the bronze medal. Switzerland’s Michael Brunner and Germany’s Nicole Muskatewitz won the mixed doubles gold medal when they defeated Korea’s Eunbi Kim and Norway’s Martin Sesaker, 13-2. It was the second gold for Brunner, who also won team gold with Switzerland. Team USA was coached by Wally Henry (Beaver Dam, Wis.), who also coached the 2010 Olympic women’s team in Vancouver.

U.s. MIxED DOUblEs 2012 U.s. Mixed Doubles Championship Dec. 7-12, 2011 • broomstones Curling Club Wayland, MA

S

eattle’s Brady and Cristin Clark defended their title with a 9-6 win at the 2012 USA Curling Mixed Doubles National Championship on Dec. 12 at the Broomstones Curling Club in Wayland, Mass. The Clarks defeated the host club’s team of Jennifer Leichter and her 21-year-old son, Alex Leichter, (Wayland, Mass.) to win their third overall mixed doubles title. They represented the U.S. at the 2012 World Mixed Doubles Championship April 23-29 in Erzurum, Turkey. “It feels fantastic anytime you get an opportunity to play in a championship final. We felt really calm and relaxed and confident today, and got off to a good start with the steals,” Brady Clark said after the game. “The whole game felt like it was going according to plan. That was a very good team that we beat.” The Clarks took the first lead of the game with back-to-back single steals to go up 2-0. But, the Leichters answered in the third end when Alex Leichter drew through a port to remove the Clark shot rock and lie three. Brady Clark couldn’t convert the double takeout, leaving Jennifer Leichter with a hit for three points and the 3-2 advantage. That lead would be short-lived and never return to the Leichters as the Clarks dominated the rest of the ends. “It’s always exciting to play in a final. I have so much adrenaline going when you know you’re playing for a chance to go to the worlds,” Brady Clark said. The Clarks won U.S. mixed doubles titles in 2009, 2011 and now 2012. At the Worlds earlier this spring in St. Paul, Minn., they became the first U.S. team in history to advance to the playoffs, eventually finishing seventh. The couple has also teamed up to win a USA Curling-record eight U.S. mixed national titles. “We would love to medal at worlds,” Cristin Clark said. “We were really close to medaling last time, and we would definitely like to get to the medal round this time.”

espite leaving Turkey without a medal, USA’s team of Brady Clark and Cristin Clark of Lynnwood, Wash., recorded the USA’s bestever finish with a fourth-place showing at the 2012 World Mixed Doubles Championship in Erzurum, Turkey. The Americans fell to Austria’s Christian Roth and Claudia Roth, 12-7, in the bronze medal game April 29 at the Milli Piyango Curling Hall. This was Austria’s first world curling medal. “We hope to continue to improve and learn some lessons from this year, and hopefully win the U.S. another time and come back to improve our rankings,” Brady Clark said after the game. “We had opportunities. We wish we could have medalled. It is what it is. It was a great championship, and congratulations to the Swiss.” Switzerland clipped Sweden, 7-6, as Swedish last-rock thrower Per Noreen tried to score three points to win the gold medal but one of the Swiss stones he was trying to remove jammed and remained in second count, and the Swedes came up short. Switzerland has now won four of five gold medals since the event debuted in 2008. This was the third appearance for the Clarks, who also have won nine U.S. mixed national titles, and their best finish after reaching the playoffs for the first time for the U.S. in 2011 in St. Paul. “Well, it’s better than last year. I guess we were seventh last year, and now we’re fourth,” Cristin Clark said after the game. After Austria opened with a deuce, the Americans answered with four points in the second end to take their first lead. Austria quickly answered with another deuce to tie the game at 4-4. The U.S. was limited to a single in the fourth when Brady Clark was forced to throw away his final stone as there was not a shot to score more than one point. With the momentum now in their corner, the Austrians capitalized, tapping forward a stone of their own stone to score four points in the fifth end. The Austrian duo scored four more again as they capitalized on missed shots by the U.S. in the seventh end, which prompted the Americans to concede the match. “It’s a really great feeling to win a medal,” Claudia Toth said. “Austria’s never won a medal, neither at Europeans or Worlds. We thought we could make it but we just tried our best and we’re still getting our head around that it actually happened.” The 2013 World Mixed Doubles Championship will take place April 13-20 in the new Grant-Harvey Centre in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. This will be the first time Canada will host the World Mixed Doubles.

T

eams skipped by Stephen Dropkin of Massachusetts and Cory Christensen of Minnesota won the 2012 USA Curling Junior National Championship titles on Feb. 4 at the Madison Curling Club in McFarland, Wis. Both teams went on to represent the U.S. at the 2012 World Junior Championships March 3-11 in Ostersund, Sweden. Dropkin (Southborough, Mass.) and teammates Korey Dropkin (Southborough, Mass.), Thomas Howell (Brick, N.J.), Derek Corbett (Rochester, N.Y.) and Cameron Ross (Princeton Junction, N.J.) became the first junior men’s team from the East Coast to win the junior nationals when they defeated Blake Morton’s Wisconsin 2 rink, 9-8. Dropkin’s team started aggressively with four points in the first end and added four more in the third to lead 8-1 after just three ends of play. Morton (McFarland, Wis.) and teammates Marcus Fonger (Cottage Grove, Wis.), Tommy Juszczyk (Madison, Wis.), Calvin Weber (McFarland, Wis.) and Chris Bond (Madison, Wis.) staged a comeback thereafter, scoring a single in the fourth and stealing a single in each of the next three ends to pull within three points at 8-5. Massachusetts scored one more in the eighth end, but the Wisconsin team kept things interesting with a deuce in the ninth to pull within two points with one end remaining in the match. Wisconsin would steal one more point, but it was not enough to complete the comeback. This was Stephen Dropkin’s ninth consecutive appearance at Junior Nationals, with last year’s silver finish being his best performance until this year when the team went through the competition with a perfect 11-0 record. The championship-title win continued an impressive season by the Dropkin rink. The team won two Great Lakes Curling Tour events, two Ontario Curling Tour events, the Grand National regional playdowns, and Korey Dropkin earned a bronze medal in mixed doubles at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games just two weeks prior to the start of Junior Nationals. This is the first junior men’s title for a team from Massachusetts since the Junior Men’s Nationals began in 1974. In an all Minnesota women’s gold-medal game, Christensen’s team from Duluth captured the 2012 USA Curling Junior Nationals women’s title. Christensen and her team of Elizabeth Busche, Anna Bauman and Sonja Bauman (all of Duluth, Minn.) defeated Miranda Solem’s team 10-8 to win their first junior national title. They finished the tournament with a 9-2 record. In a back-and-forth gold-medal match, Solem (Cohasset, Minn.) and her team of Mackenzie Lank (Lewiston, N.Y.), Julie Lilla (Trempealeau, Wis.), Chelsea Solem (Cohasset, Minn.) and Becca Funk (McFarland, Wis.) scored four points in the fourth end to take their first lead of the game at 5-3. A steal of two in the following end then gave Solem’s reigning Minnesota state junior champions a bigger lead at 7-3. But, the lead would be short-lived as Christensen’s team worked its way back into the match. The teams exchanged singles over the next two ends, with Minnesota II closing the gap to 8-6 by scoring a deuce in the eighth end. Christensen’s team closed out the final two ends with back-to-back steals of two points each to earn the win and gold medal.

tephen Dropkin led the American men to a fifth-place finish at the 2012 World Junior Championships at Z-hallen in Ostersund, Sweden. The American men concluded the round robin on a high note with an 8-7 win over Switzerland’s Dominik Marki to finish 5-4. “We played very well, but we made a couple of mistakes. It’s kind of a bittersweet time, but it was really nice to finish off with a win because we were struggling in the last few games … struggling to play like a team as we usually do,” Stephen Dropkin said after the win over Switzerland. “It’s nice that in the end we finished off strong.” Dropkin (Southborough, Mass.) and his team of Korey Dropkin (Southborough, Mass.), Thomas Howell (Brick, N.J.), Derek Corbett (Rochester, N.Y.) and Cameron Ross (Princeton Junction, N.J.) came close to a playoff berth in the team’s first appearance at the world junior event.

ory Christensen and the American ladies finished a tough week at the 2012 World Junior Championships at Z-Hallen in Ostersund, Sweden, with a 7-4 loss to Italy’s Federica Apollonio rink in the round robin finale to finish the week 0-9, but they took the opportunity to represent the U.S. as a great learning experience as the young team continues to develop on the world scene. “It’s definitely been worth the trip. We’ve learned so much through every game. We’ve been taping all the games and taking stats, so we’ve learned a lot already,” Christensen said. “We’re definitely more motivated than when we arrived. I’m ready for next year.” Christensen (Duluth, Minn.), 17, who was the youngest skip in the women’s field, and teammates Elizabeth Busche (Duluth, Minn.), Cory Christensen prepares to deliver the Anna Bauman (Duluth, Minn.), last rock. Sonja Bauman (Duluth, Minn.) and Becca Funk (McFarland, Wis.) finished the event in 10th place in their first trip to the World Juniors. Scotland went on to win its second straight junior women’s title and fifth since 2007 by defeating the Czech Republic, 6-5. In the bronze-medal game, Russia got past Sweden, 7-4, to reach the podium. The 2013 World Junior Championships will be the test event for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. The World Juniors are set for Feb. 28-March 10 at the Olympic venue. Team USA will be selected at the 2013 USA Curling Junior National Championships, Jan. 26-Feb. 2 at the Broomstones Curling Club in Wayland, Mass.

2012 U.s. national Championships Feb. 11-18 • Aston, PA

llison Pottinger’s rink captured the gold medal Feb. 18 at the 2012 USA Curling National Championships at IceWorks Skating Complex in Aston, Pa. “It’s always fantastic but special this time,” said Pottinger, who won her first national title as skip and 10th overall. “We all took the challenge and moved up a spot and brought Tab (Peterson) on the team. We knew we’d have to work at it, and it’s so great to get the payout and win. As a team, the girls were fantastic all day.” 2010 Olympians Pottinger (Eden Prairie, Minn.), Nicole Joraanstad (Verona, Wis.) and Natalie Nicholson (Bemidji, Minn.) along with two-time U.S. junior champion Tabitha Peterson (Eagan, Minn.) represented the U.S. at the 2012 World Women’s Championship March 17-25 in Lethbridge, Alberta, after defeating Team Cassie Potter, 7-5, in the gold-medal game. “We’re super excited. We love wearing USA on our backs and going to play and represent the U.S.,” Joraanstad said. Despite the loss, Potter (St. Paul, Minn.) and teammates Jamie Haskell (White Bear Lake, Minn.), Jackie Lemke (Medford, Wis.) and Stephanie Sambor (Minot, N.D.) earned a berth in the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team Trials along with the Pottinger rink. “It feels really good to hang in there and prove that we can stick with the rest of them,” said Potter, who skipped Team USA with her sister Jamie at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games. “The playing field this week has been really even. A lot of junior teams are coming up, and it’s not a matter of the top same two or three teams anymore. It’s the top five or six, which is really good. I hope it keeps getting better.” This is the 10th national title for Pottinger, seventh for Joraanstad, eighth for Nicholson and first for Peterson. “It’s pretty nuts; it’s my first one so I can’t describe it,” said Peterson, 22, who won two U.S. junior titles and a world junior bronze medal in 2010. “It feels really, really good but especially coming back from last year when we lost the finals. We feel good about coming back this week and playing really well and winning,” said Nicholson, who works as a registered nurse and is the mother of two daughters.

2012 U.s. national Championships Feb. 11-18, 2012 • Aston, PA

eath McCormick’s team captured the 2012 USA Curling National Championships on Feb. 18 for the team’s first national title win. Team McCormick dethroned Pete Fenson’s national champions, 5-4, in front of a sold-out crowd of more than 1,300 fans at IceWorks Skating Complex in Aston, Pa. “It’s incredible. It’s super exciting. It’s just kinda setting in at the moment,” said McCormick, 35, after the win. “Obviously, for the last day I knew that it was a possibility, but you have to tell yourself to stay in the moment even when it comes right down to it and not get too far ahead of yourself.” This was the second straight year a men’s team has advanced through the national championships undefeated. This is the first U.S. men’s title for McCormick (Sarnia, Ontario) and teammates Bill Stopera (Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.), Martin Sather (Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y.) and Dean Gemmell (Short Hills, N.J.). They represented the U.S. at the 2012 World Men’s Championship March 31-April 8 in Basel, Switzerland. “Pretty damn exciting; we’ve been close in the playoffs the last two years. We got a new skip, and he’s a fantastic player,” said Gemmell after the win. “It’s really exciting. None of us have ever represented the U.S. in a world event. That’s exciting.” McCormick sealed the win with his first rock of the final end – a freeze that made Fenson’s final shot one with a high degree of difficulty. “A game like that you have to come and play great. They played great, and we made some mistakes,” Fenson said. “They capitalized and the couple of times they made a mistake, we couldn’t do that as well as we needed to. They just played terrific. They played great all week and went undefeated.” Despite the loss, Fenson (Bemidji, Minn.) and teammates Shawn Rojeski (Chisholm, Minn.), Joe Polo (Duluth, Minn.) and Ryan Brunt (Bemidji, Minn.) have accomplished one goal – qualifying for the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team Trials (along with Team McCormick). “That was our No. 1 goal. We agreed we wanted to win all the nationals between now and then and try to win a world championship because we still haven’t done that,” said Fenson, who has won nine U.S. titles and bronze at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games. “But we also want to go back and upgrade our medal from the Olympics so we had to qualify for the Trials ... and we did that. Once the pain starts to go away from the loss, we have that to look forward to.” The live webstreaming throughout the 2012 Nationals, courtesy of the 12th End Sports Network and the U.S. Olympic Committee, brought in 189,428 unique viewers throughout the weeklong competition. The 2013 Nationals will take place Feb. 916, 2013, at the Cornerstone Community Center in Green Bay, Wis. Heath McCormick celebrates moments after cliniching his first U.S. national title.

2012 World Men’s Championship March 31-April 8 • basel, switzerland

eam USA ended its week on a high note with a 7-6 win over the Czech Republic to finish eighth overall at the 2012 World Men’s Championship at St. Jakobshalle in Basel, Switzerland. With the defeat of Jiri Snitil’s team, Heath McCormick (Sarnia, Ontario) and teammates Bill Stopera (Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.), Martin Sather (Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y.), Dean Gemmell (Short Hills, N.J.) and Craig Brown (Madison, Wis.) finished with a 4-7 overall record and earned five points for the United States toward qualifying for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. “It was a nice way to end a disappointing week,” McCormick said. “I think we’re all going to learn something, and hopefully we’ll get back at this and use these experiences for future world championships and the Olympic Trials. My guys have not played in a lot of big events, and we have not all played in a world championship before so I think everybody learned a few things on and off the ice. I think we’ll be better if we get the opportunity again.” “It was important to win, for some Olympic points and so on and so forth, but we were good tonight. It was a tight game, we missed a couple of key shots but held in there and were able to come through in the end,” McCormick said. The final round robin win was also the difference between an 11th place finish and just two Olympic-qualifying points compared to an eighth-place finish and five points. The next – and final – opportunity to earn Olympic qualifying points will be the 2013 World Men’s Championship, which is scheduled to take place March 30-April 7 in Victoria, British Columbia. Team USA for the event will be determined at the 2013 National Championships, Feb. 9-16, in Green Bay, Wis. Canada’s Glenn Howard defeated Scotland’s Tom Brewster, 8-7, in an extra end to win the 2012 world championship title. Sweden’s Sebastian Kraupp rink – playing without skip Niklas Edin, who was injured – defeated Norway’s Thomas Ulrsud rink, 9-8, in an extra end to win the bronze medal.

O

ne bad end haunted the Americans when they met Canada on day one of their first round robin game. It was one bad end again six days later as USA’s seven-game win streak was halted by Canada’s Heather Nedohin rink in a 9-8 tiebreaker loss at the 2012 Ford World Women’s Championship on March 23. The U.S., led by 2010 Olympian and 10-time national champion Allison Pottinger (Eden Prairie, Minn.), lost its first four games of the championship at the Enmax Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta, but came storming back to win seven straight games and force a tiebreaker match with Canada for the final playoff berth. The fifth-place finish by Pottinger and teammates Nicole Joraanstad (Verona, Wis.), Natalie Nicholson (Bemidji, Minn.), Tabitha Peterson (Eagan, Minn.) and Cassie Potter (St. Paul, Minn.) earned the U.S. eight points toward qualifying for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, in the first year where points can be secured. “I think we learned a bunch about ourselves as a team this week. We’re really gritty, and we want to come back and do better,” Pottinger said. “I think that’s the thing that’s going to keep us fired up for the next couple of years. I am incredibly proud of the girls. Even today they played super well. It was not them that let us down this game.” Switzerland’s Mirjam Ott won her first world title when the Swiss defeated Sweden, 7-6, in the gold-medal game. Canada defeated Korea, 9-6, to win the bronze medal. The U.S. was trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007 but came up just short after a disastrous second end that left the Americans chasing in the tiebreaker match. After the first end was blanked, Canada put up the corner guard and both teams had minor hiccups that could have put the momentum in either team’s direction. Pottinger’s freeze attempt with her first stone over-curled and situated itself behind the Canadian stone in second position to the far side of the house, allowing Canada to go after USA’s shot rock and lie three. Pottinger then flashed her takeout and Canada had a draw into the 8-foot for four points. Needing to score at least two in the ninth end to keep the game close, Pottinger made a double takeout with her final stone to cut the game to a twopoint deficit once again. The opportunity to steal the necessary points in the 10th end faded early in the end and Canada eventually clinched the win. The 2013 World Women’s Championship will take place March 16-24 in Riga, Latvia. USA’s Nicole Joraanstad and Natalie Nicholson in action at the 2012 Ford World Women’s Championship.

sEnIOR nATIOnAls 2012 U.s. senior Women’s national Championship, Dec. 2-4, 2011 Grafton Curling Club, Grafton, n.D. Wisconsin’s Pam Oleinik captured her third senior women’s national title as she led her team to a 6-1 record to win the 2012 USA Curling Senior Women’s National Championship. Oleinik and teammates Laurie Rahn, Stephanie Martin and Julie Denten finished the seven-team round robin field with a 5-1 record. That matched Sharon Vukich’s team from Seattle. The two teams squared off in a tiebreaker game to determine the national champ. The game was tightly-contested throughout, with Oleinik’s rink capitalizing on a mistake in the final end to steal a point and secure the 6-4 victory. Two-time senior champion Vukich was teamed up with Miyo Konno, Linda Cornfield and Cathie Tomlinson. “We had two very close games with Sharon. Her team was consistent, and Sharon is always a dangerous opponent, seemingly able to pull incredible shots out of her back pocket at will. Both games were decided by a matter of inches,”said Oleinik, who also won senior titles in 2007 and 2008 along with Rahn.

isconsin’s Ian Journeaux rink captured the 2012 USA Curling Senior Men’s National Championship title Dec. 5 with an 8-2 win over two-time champion Paul Pustovar at the Capital Curling Club in Bismarck, N.D. Journeaux and teammates David Carlson (Portage, Wis.), Timothy Funk (McFarland, Wis.) and Ken Spatola (McFarland, Wis.) finished the competition with a perfect 7-0 record. This is the first senior men’s title for Journeaux, Funk and Spatola and third for Carlson, who won in 2008 and 2005. They represented the U.S. at the 2012 World Senior Championships April 14-21 in Copenhagen, Denmark. “Winning my third senior title fuels my passion for the sport, but it is not nearly as satisfying as being a part of a team whereby I am able to help three other curlers/friends win their first senior title,” said Carlson, who works as an attorney in Portage, Wis. Although Pustovar (Hibbing, Minn.) and teammates Brian Simonson (Hibbing, Minn.), John Kokotovich (Hibbing, Minn.) and Don Mohawk (Nashwauk, Minn.) started with the last rock advantage, the team did not score until the fourth end and gave Journeaux’s team a quick advantage as the Wisconsin squad stole five points early on. Pustovar’s team started to inch back into the game with a single in the fourth and a steal of one in the fifth, but they would not score again. Journeaux’s team locked down the win with a three-point sixth end and only had to play defense thereafter to keep the 2010 world senior champions at bay. “Stealing three in the first in the championship game gave us all confidence that we were ready to play and win,” Carlson said. “Following up with taking three with the hammer in the sixth after Pustovar had stolen one in the fifth took back the momentum for us. We felt we were challenged in the seventh to keep our focus. When Ian made the thin double take-out to clear the house of opposing stones, I thought we met the challenge.” The 2013 USA Curling Senior National Championships will take place Jan. 23-27 in Fairbanks, Alaska.

P

am Oleinik and the American ladies finished fifth after an 8-5 tiebreaker loss to Scotland at the 2012 World Senior Championships at the Tårnby Curling Club just outside Copenhagen, Denmark. Oleinik (Brookfield, Wis.) and teammates Laurie Rahn (Lake Forest, Ill.), Stephanie Martin (Barrington, Ill.), Julie Denten (Northbrook, Ill.) and Joni Cotten (Mount Prospect, Ill.) never led in the match against Barbara Watt. “This game was very close, there were a lot of rocks in play every end. You always hear the quote ‘you’re on the wrong side of the inch’ on taps and hits and that was sometimes the case with us,” Cotten said. “We had an in-turn open hit to tie and take the game into overtime (an extra end), but it didn’t get made, so you wish the other team well in the semifinal. That’s how curling goes.” Scotland went on to win its semifinal game but couldn’t earn the gold medal when the Canadian ladies defeated them 12-2 in the final. Sweden got past New Zealand, 10-3, to win the bronze. “For two of the girls here, the front end players, Stephanie and Julie, this is their first world experience. They played really well, rose up to the challenge. Without question the team has learned a lot,” Cotten said. “You have all this international flavor here, so when you’re playing in a championship mode, there’s practices and referees and certain things that go along with this. It’s always a learning experience and what you take away from this, win or lose, is that you want so badly to get back again – it drives you.” The 2013 World Senior Championships will take place April 13-20 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. The U.S. teams will be determined at the 2013 USA Curling Senior National Championships, Jan. 23-27 in Fairbanks, Alaska.

T

he U.S. men, led by Ian Journeaux (Plover, Wis.), had an up-anddown week and finished ranked 14th overall with a 3-4 record in their round robin group at the 2012 World Senior Championships at the Tårnby Curling Club just outside Copenhagen, Denmark. Journeaux and teammates David Carlson (Portage, Wis.), Timothy Funk (McFarland, Wis.), Kenneth Spatola (McFarland, Wis.) and Mark Swandby (Madison, Wis.) were eliminated from playoff contention after suffering a 6-4 loss to Switzerland near the conclusion of the round robin. The American men began the tournament with back-to-back losses before defeating Scotland to get in the win column. It was an uphill battle after that as the Americans really needed to win out at this point to try to make the quarterfinals. The rest of the week was highlighted with wins over Latvia and Russia coupled with losses to England and the Swiss. Ireland went on to capture the gold medal with a single steal in the extra end over Canada to win the nation’s first-ever gold medal in curling. Sweden defeated Norway, 8-4, to earn the bronze medal. The 2013 World Senior Championships will take place April 13-20 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. The U.S. teams will be determined at the 2013 USA Curling Senior National Championships, Jan. 23-27, in Fairbanks, Alaska.

m Good led the Washington ladies to the region’s first-ever gold medal at the 2012 USA Curling Club National Championships as Good’s Granite Curling Club team defeated Shelly Kinney of Minnesota, 7-6. Good clinched the gold medal with a last-rock takeout to score three points for the win at the Mankato Curling Club. Good (Seattle) and teammates Jill Lamberts (Seattle), Jennifer Westhagen (Seattle) and Hannah Volkman (Shoreline, Wash.) upgraded to gold after a silver-medal finish last year. Kinney’s St. Paul Curling Club team of Amy Lou Anderson (Plymouth, Minn.), Theresa Hoffoss (Minneapolis, Minn.), Julie Smith (St. Paul, Minn.) and Jennifer Vieth (Hastings, Minn.) held a two-rock lead heading into the 10th end but guards got left in front of the house, which allowed Washington to pile rocks into the house. The lead changed throughout the game with Minnesota holding an early 3-2 lead at the break after Good was forced to make a takeout for one. Washington then stole two in the sixth end when Kinney inadvertently chipped in a second Washington stone on her final shot. Minnesota was forced to hit for a single in the seventh end to tie the game at 4-4. The St. Paul teammates put the pressure on Washington in the eighth end with Kinney drawing around stones in the top of the eight-foot to put a stone into scoring position. Good’s takeout attempt jammed and Minnesota stole a single. Kinney’s squad applied the pressure again in the ninth end and stole one more point when Good’s final stone wrecked on a center guard. The 10th end didn’t go as planned for Minnesota, however, as Washington quickly got two stones in the house behind guards that Minnesota had trouble removing. Kinney’s final takeout left her in scoring position, but the stone didn’t get the roll they had anticipated and Good had an open takeout for three and the win. In the bronze medal game, North Dakota’s Beth Bohlman rink defeated California’s Gabrielle Coleman, 7-6. Bohlman and teammates Kyleigh Smith, Amy Bushaw, Dawn Zimney and Gail Ingwalson (all of Grand Forks, N.D.) fell behind early to California as Coleman (Mountain View, Calif.) and her team of Regan Mizuno (Menlo Park, Calif.), TC Altus (Campbell, Calif.) and Stacey MacNeil (San Jose, Calif.) took a 3-0 lead after stealing two points in the second end. North Dakota didn’t take its first lead until stealing two points in the seventh end. After limiting California to singles in the eighth and 10th ends, North Dakota clinched its second straight bronze medal.

wo-time U.S. junior champion Aaron Wald of Minnesota led his team to a gold-medal victory over Seattle’s Doug Kauffman to win the men’s title at the 2012 USA Curling Club National Championships at the Mankato Curling Club. Wald’s Bemidji Curling Club teammates Trevor Andrews, Josh Bahr and Atticus Wallace (all of Bemidji, Minn.) earned the 9-5 win and their first Club Nationals title. This is Minnesota’s fifth overall win and third straight at this event, which began in 2005. After Minnesota jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead after two ends, Kauffman (Edmonds, Wash.) and his Granite Curling Club team of John Rasmussen (Edmonds, Wash.), Ken Trask (Seattle) and Andrea Callegari (Seattle) got on the scoreboard with a deuce and then stole a single in the fourth end when Wald attempted an angle-raise takeout using a stone out in the weeds that didn’t convert. Wald’s team got back on track in the fifth end and tried to split two stones at the top of the rings into the house for three but settled for two to extend the lead to 6-3. Washington was forced to a single in the sixth but they kept pace by holding Minnesota to a takeout for one point in the seventh. Minnesota applied pressure in the eighth end and made Kauffman draw for a single to pull within three points again. Washington made Minnesota earn its single in the ninth and ran out of rocks in the 10th when Wald made an open takeout. Greg Wilson’s team from Illinois had to go to an extra end to defeat Roger Smith’s North Dakota squad, 9-8, for the bronze medal. The game was backand-forth with Smith (Bismarck, N.D.) and his Capital Curling Club teammates Curt Bradbury (Bismarck, N.D.), Matthew Shappell (Steele, N.D.) and Todd Ussatis (Bismarck, N.D.) taking the early lead. However, Wilson (Vernon Hills, Ill.) and his Chicago Curling Club team of David Durrant (Chicago), Michael Rane (Glencoe, Ill.), Jim Wilson (Winnetka, Ill.) and Colin Rittgers (Highland Park, Ill.) took control in the second half with two ends in which they scored three points each to maintain a lead. Trailing by two points in the 10th end, Smith’s rink was able to get the necessary points in the house and survived to play an extra end when Wilson couldn’t convert the double takeout. In the extra end, however, Wilson connected with a draw into the eight-foot to secure the bronze medal for Illinois.

W

ashington’s Brady Clark rink captured its fourth straight title – and ninth overall since 2002 – at the 2012 USA Curling Mixed National Championship at the Portage Curling Club in Portage, Wis. Washington defeated California’s Lyle Sieg, 9-5, with a steal in the 10th end. This is the ninth title for Clark (Lynnwood, Wash.) and vice skip (and wife) Cristin Clark (Lynnwood, Wash.); first title for 2010 junior champion Sean Beighton (Seattle); and eighth for Bev Walter (Seattle). “The competition was incredible this week. We had a strong week and feel very fortunate to have earned another title,” Brady Clark said. “Every year is a new battle, and we have to play well or teams will take us down. Winning requires excellent execution and teamwork, and we appreciate the opportunity to play against the best teams from around the country.” Sieg (Tacoma, Wash.) and teammates Britt Rjanikov (Wayland, Mass.), Barry Ivy (Livermore, Calif.), Stacey MacNeil (San Jose, Calif.) and Katie Dubberstein (Portage, Wis.) were seeking the Mountain Pacific region’s first-ever mixed national title but settled for silver. Through eight ends the California team kept matching Washington’s scoring output. It wasn’t until the ninth end that Washington took a two-point advantage. Sieg was attempting to sneak his stone through a narrow port in the 10th end with his final stone to make a double takeout and force an extra end but hit a guard, and Washington sealed the win with a two-point steal. In the bronze-medal game, Minnesota’s Andy Jukich defeated Wisconsin’s Steve Day, 9-3, to earn Minnesota’s first mixed medal in several years. Jukich (Duluth, Minn.) and teammates Jill Hansen (Duluth, Minn.), Harold Rutan (Olympia, Wash.) and Mary Shields (Duluth, Minn.) scored three points right out of the gate and stole two in the second end to quickly build a 5-0 lead. Wisconsin could only muster a single in the third and allowed Minnesota to score another deuce in the fourth. The early lead proved too large for Day (Madison, Wis.) and teammates Emilia Juocys (Chicago), Dan Wiza (Waunakee, Wis.) and Heather Van Sistine (Hartland, Wis.) to overcome as they conceded the match after eight ends.

AWARDs 2012 UsA Curling Athletes of the Year Korey Dropkin (Southborough, Mass.) and Allison Pottinger (Eden Prairie, Minn.) have been selected as the 2012 USA Curling Athletes of the Year. This is the first time Dropkin, 17, has been named Male Athlete of the Year. He also is the youngest male athlete ever selected for this honor. Dropkin skipped the team that won the first U.S. playdown for the inaugural Winter Youth Olympic Games and then won the USA’s first-ever medal at the event when he captured the bronze medal in the mixed doubles portion of the event with Dropkin Russian teammate Marina Verenich. He also led USA to a fifth-place finish in the team competition. Less than a week later, Dropkin won his first junior national championship playing vice skip for older brother Stephen Dropkin and played for Team USA at the 2012 World Junior Championships in Sweden, finishing fifth. “I had no idea this award even existed, so when I heard I was being awarded it, I was quite shocked, but thrilled as well,” said Dropkin, who is going into his senior year at Algonquin Regional High School in Northborough, Mass. This is the second time Pottinger, a member of the 2010 Olypmic team and 10-time U.S. champion, has been selected as Female Athlete of the Year. Pottinger She previously was chosen in 2008. Pottinger led her team to the 2012 U.S. National Championship title and after a rought start to the 2012 World Women’s Championship, battled back to win seven straight games for a fifth-place finish. Pottinger was the top-ranked skip in shooting percentage at both the 2012 National Championships and at the 2012 Women’s World Championship. “I was really surprised about the award. We had a really good run as a team and all four of us individually had really strong seasons. I feel like everyone played really well and this award could have went to any of them so when I heard that it was me, I was really surprised,” Seattle’s husband-wife duo of Brady Clark and Cristin Clark have been named 2012 USA Curling Team of the Year. The Clarks successfully defended their U.S. Mixed Doubles National Championship title and went on to a fourthplace finish at the 2012 World Mixed Doubles Championship – the best-ever finish for a U.S. team since the event began in 2008. In addition, the Clarks won their fourth straight U.S. Mixed National Championship title. Since 2002, the Clarks have won nine mixed national titles. “We are very honored to be recognized as the first mixed doubles team to earn the Team of the Year Award,” Brady Clark said. “I think with the sport’s evolution and the possibility of having it added to the 2018 Olympics, it’s good timing and I’m happy that the committee and the USCA has recognized us.”
