The US men's and women's curling teams will leave Sochi without medals at the Winter Olympics, but a team from Seattle is headed to Switzerland to represent the US in the Junior World Curling Championships! Team Vukich is from Granite Curling Club of Seattle, and won the US Junior National Championships earlier this month.
They are now known as Team USA, and members Jake Vukich, Evan McAuley, Luc Violette and Kyle Lorwick joined Margaret to talk more about what they enjoy about their sport, and look ahead to the upcoming World Championships.They also talked about their team's nickname ( The Legion of BROOM ) and gave Margaret an impromptu curling lesson on the New Day set.
Team USA leaves for Switzerland this weekend. They'll keep in touch with us and we'll update you on their progress. You can also follow the team on Facebook (as Team Vukich), as well as Granite Curling Club of Seattle's Facebook page.
