Women's curling teams compete for shot at nationals


BETTINA HANSEN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Fourteen teams from around the U.S. competed in the Women's Curling Challenge round at the Granite Curling Club in north Seattle this weekend. Here, supporters watch eight teams compete Sunday morning from the upper viewing room. The top six teams from the challenge will move on to the national competition. The top two from that competition will go to the Olympic trials.

Cristin Clark of Lynnwood, the skip, delivers the stone. Clark is a decorated national champion, and the Granite Curling Club is known for producing more national champions than any other club in the United States. Clark's team lost this game but won in an extra game later in the day to qualify for the 2013 US National Championships in Green Bay next month.
