CHAMPIONSHIPS Anderson & Dropkin capture U.S. mixed doubles title


Duo finishes 13th at world championship


By Terry L. Davis, Editor


second mixed doubles national title at this four- sheet Wisconsin club on Jan. 21. Tree years ago, the young duo won their first


T


title with a win over Maureen Stolt and Peter Stolt (both of Plymouth, Minn.) and they did it again by a 6-3 score to win the 2018 title. Te Stolts, who won the title in 2013, never had the lead as Anderson and Dropkin took charge early and held on to win the 2018 USA Curling Mixed Doubles National Championship in Eau Claire. Te duo finished the competition with a 7-1


record. In the gold-medal game, Anderson (Min- neapolis, Minn.) and Dropkin (Duluth, Minn.), both college students and members of the USA Curling High Performance Program, scored a single in the first and stole a point in the follow- ing end for a modest 2-0 lead. Aſter holding the Stolts, who came into the final undefeated, to a single in the third, Anderson and Dropkin would repeat that pattern twice more as they scored a single in the fourth and stole a point in the fiſth to extend the lead to 4-1. In the sixth, the game’s lone deuce was scored by the Stolts but they couldn’t keep the young Minnesota duo off the scoreboard in the final two ends. World Championship recap:


Te Americans were one of 40 competing


countries at the 2018 World Mixed Doubles Championship, which took place April 21-28 in Ostersund, Sweden. Te U.S. duo clinched a spot in the playoffs by


going 6-1 in the round robin at Ostersund Arena. In the Round of 16 playoffs, the duo were matched against Hungary and fell, 7-4. Te loss moved the U.S. team to the B side of the bracket, which the World Curling Federation uses for ranking. Te Americans then met Italy and lost on the final shot of the game when the Italians made a double takeout to score two. Te final ranking for the U.S. team was 13th. Switzerland would go on to defeat Russia to earn the country’s seventh gold medal in the short history of the competition. Q
