U.S. ladies just miss out on Olympic playoff spot

in the team's first appearance at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea. Roth (McFarland, Wis.) and her team of


N


Tabitha Peterson (Eagan, Minn.), Aileen Geving (Duluth, Minn.), Becca Hamilton (McFarland, Wis.), Cory Christensen (Duluth, Minn.), and Coaches Al Hackner (Tunder Bay, Ontario) and Scott Baird (Bemidji, Minn.) finished with a 4-5 record, tied for fiſth place but eighth in final ranking at the Gangneung Curling Centre. How- ever, a couple of hiccups in the final two ends cost the U.S. team a chance to move on. “We had our fate in our hands and didn’t quite


finish it out and execute. We battled back aſter a difficult first end very well. Sometimes it doesn’t quite work out for us. It didn’t,” said Roth, a reg- istered nurse. “I am just very proud of how my team played. We handled the pressure like it was nothing and came out swinging against almost every team. Tere aren’t many games that I would take back. I am just proud of how we played. We hung in there. We had our chance.” Te U.S. team collected four wins but had sev-


ina Roth and the U.S. ladies fought to the final rock of the round robin but came up just short of a playoff berth


eral close losses throughout the week “We battled back very well. We just couldn’t


finish it off, unfortunately. We played well all week, we just didn’t get some of the outcomes we were hoping for,” Peterson said. “I think we per- formed well. A lot of our games were really close. We had a chance in all of them. I think we are going to come out of this proud. But, we are going to come out of it hungry for 2022.” “You learn a lot – wins and losses. Sometimes


you learn more from the losses – when to take an extra second, when to really talk through shots and keying in on those moments might make the difference,” Geving said. Te U.S. had a chance to force a tiebreaker


game but a 9-6 loss to eventual 2018 Olympic champion Sweden put the brakes on their run. “We definitely had our chance. With Switzer-


land winning, this put us in a chance for a tie- breaker. We just couldn’t pull it out the win at the end of the day. It just came down to that last end,” Hamilton said. In the playoffs, history was made when two


Asian teams secured medals. Korea advanced to the gold-medal game to take on Sweden, finish- ing second and Japan defeated Great Britain to win the bronze. Q
