Leyden’s Rebecca Rodgers has enjoyed success at the U.S. Junior National Curling Championships this week.

Rodgers’ team (Team Podell) defeated each of the two High Performance teams over the past few days and earned the No. 1 seed after the round robin portion of the tournament. Team Podell faced second-seeded Team Bear late last night and can do no worse than a third-place finish according to Rodgers’ father, John Rodgers.

Team Podell defeated Team Farrell, 8-6, on Thursday and then bested Team Bear, 7-4, early on Friday to finish the round robin with a 7-2 record. Team Podell was one of four teams to qualify for the playoffs, and the winning team will represent the United States at the World Junior Championships in Scotland in March.
