Dakota Women Win 2013 Arena Nationals Gold Medal!
Dakota Curling is proud to congratulate the Ellarby Women’s rink for winning the gold medal at the 2013 Arena Nationals held in Fort Wayne Indiana July 17 – 21! After a 4-1 record, the Dakota Women beat worthy adversaries from the San Francisco Bay Curling Club to take home the gold medal in a 9-3 finish after seven ends.
The Dakota Men’s team played well but dropped out of the running just before reaching the semi-finals in a tough but close game. Between the two teams, Dakota Curling was well-represented and everyone played well against excellent competition from arena clubs around the nation.
Players for the Women’s team were:
Darcy Ellarby (skip), Jenny Witschen (Vice), Julie Wennberg (Second), Robyn Farm (Lead) and Beth Lundquist (Alternate)
Players for the Men’s team were:
