American ladies improve to 3-1 at World Seniors
Oleinik and teammates Laurie Rahn (Lake Forest, Ill.), Stephanie Martin (Barrington, Ill.) and Julie Denten (Northbrook, Ill.) defeated Denmark's Mai Greulich rink, 9-6, to improve to 3-1 in Group A of the round robin with two games remaining.
"This win puts us in a good position. We have two more games in the round-robin and if we take care of business then maybe we'll be in the playoff hunt," said Joni Cotten, Team USA coach and alternate, who was a member of the 2002 Olympic team as well as Debbie McCormick's 2003 world championship team. "Today's game was a tale of two halves, for sure. We came out really strong in the first four ends, but after the break our opponents, Denmark, put on the gas and made a real match out of things."
