Seattle-area curling team on way to world championship

SEATTLE (AP) - A Seattle area curling team won the national championships in Green Bay, Wis., this weekend.

The win qualifies the Brady Clark team of Lynnwood to represent the United States at the world curling championships in Victoria, British Columbia. The team has also earned a spot at the U.S. Olympic team trials, which will be held in November in Fargo, North Dakota.

Seattle's Colin Hufman, who played for a Minnesota team at the competition this weekend, also has qualified for the U.S. Olympic trials.

Brady Clark has won the U.S. mixed team championship nine times, but this is their first U.S. men's team national title.
