Pottinger rink alone at top of women's standings
Allison Pottinger's team is the lone undefeated women's team as they picked up two wins today, capped with a 10-5 win over Alex Carlson in the late afternoon draw. The win improves Pottinger (Eden Prairie, Minn.) and teammates Nicole Joraanstad (Madison, Wis.), Natalie Nicholson (Bemidji, Minn.) and Tabitha Peterson (Eagan, Minn.) to 3-0 in the nine-game round robin.
Maureen Stolt's team picked up its first win of the week by taking down the No. 1 seeded Erika Brown rink, 11-6. Stolt (Plymouth, Minn.) and her team of Megan Pond (Minneapolis, Minn.), Emilia Juocys (Chicago) and Sherri Schummer (St. Paul, Minn.) held the lead for most of the match.
"It has taken us awhile to click and play our game ... communication was much better today," Stolt said. "We're feeling pretty good. It's a good time to come together as a team. We're just looking forward to one game at a time and one shot at a time to keep moving upward."
