The World Championships will be in nearby Victoria, BC March 30-April 7th, and the GCC's Team Clark will be on the ice as "Team USA." Here is a link to the Men's world Championship schedule; http://www.curling.ca/championships/worlds/drawschedule/
Imagine that - Brady Clark wins another national championship! But this was his first men's championship. Brady, Sean Beighton, Darren Lehto, and Philip Tilker assured themselves a slot at the Olympic trials with their incredibly close semi-final win on Friday evening. Today, they won a trip to the world championships in Victoria with a 6-5 victory over Team George in the final. Not to make it too easy, Clark and company gave up three in the eighth to trail by one. Then they blanked the ninth and took two in the tenth for the win.

Brady Clark and his wife Cristin (Lynnwood, WA) have won more national championships curling together (12) than any other duo in the history of United States Curling. They will look to add another title to that list in 2013, as they will represent the State of Washington at the 2013 US Mixed Curling Championships, March 16-23 in Wilmar, Minnesota.
