Curling

Hunter Clawson and Caleb Clawson, brothers from Clarksville, were members of the Kent Suslavich rink which recently won the Optimist U18 International Curling Championships in British Columbia, Canada.

The Clawson brothers and their teammates — Suslavich (Woodbury, Conn.) and Will Pryor (Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY) — defeated the Tanner Horgan rink from Northern Ontario, 5-3. The team is coached by Don Arsenault (Brick, NJ). It was the first time a U.S. mens team has won the event.

Suslavich's team went 4-1 in round robin play to reach the playoffs. In the semifinals, the team defeated Nova Scotia's Adam Cocks team, 6-2, to advance to the gold-medal game.

Soccer

The U10 Girls SAC Challenge team recently won the 2014 Amanda Post Tournament championship. The team went undefeated with three wins and a tie, scoring 12 goals while allowing only three. In the finals, the Challenge beat a tough Baltimore Bays squad, 3-1. The team is made up of the following players: Emily Herrera, Alex Delmonte, Karis Turner, Yessica Negron, Olivia Rawleigh, Erin Arnold, Caroline Otchet, Rilee Tur-Rojas, Taylor Moorehead, Sadie Saula, Gabby Scott and Ella Boodin. The team is coached by Larry Boodin and Denis Herrera.

The Women's SAC Premier College Showcase team, which began tournament play only 120 days ago in North Carolina, went undefeated that weekend, at the TFC Friendlies in January, and at the prestigious Jefferson Cup on March 15.

The team is made up of players from eight different high schools, with a core of sophomores, most of whom start.

"I have coached women's club, (high school), and semi-pro women soccer for over 15 years and always wanted to build a college showcase team where I could bring together the most talented athletes regardless of age," coach Sam Haddad said. "We knew that the team, on paper, was scary good, but did not know how long it would take to build a team that could compete and take on all comers."

The team has six seniors, all of whom are moving on to play at the collegiate level.

The team will be holding tryouts in June to fill the spots vacated by players heading to their respective college teams.
