In 2017 at the University of Notre Dame, our team from Cincinnati Curling Club won the Silver Medal at Arena Nationals, losing by only one point to Oklahoma Curling Club. While my team was sad that we lost, I knew we were winners. It took five tries to achieve this goal, but it came only by competing with the best Arena Curlers in the country.

The first year I was the Skip (captain) of our team and I’m embarrassed to say we only won 1 of our 4 games.

The following years, we rebuilt the team with a more experienced Skip and I moved into the Lead (1st position) where my skills were exceptional and key to setting up a good strategy. We went to Nationals again with more confidence and skill, but it was another 3 years before we would make it to the semi-finals and take home the prize.
