Both Todhunter and Christensen are first-time recipients of the coaching awards. Todhunter coaches the reigning U.S. national champion Erika Brown rink, which won several events on the World Curling Tour this season and placed fourth at the 2013 Women's World Championship in March.
"I was flattered. You never think about those personal awards in a team sport," said Todhunter, who won the U.S. men's national title twice. "Firstly, this is a team award because no matter what I do as a coach it has to be translated on the ice. It is another award for Team Erika Brown. I'm fortunate to coach a team that has four women who could have each easily been named Athlete of the Year."
