Wausau’s junior curlers brought home medals in the National Junior Curling Championships which concluded Saturday, April 30, at the new Sentry Curling Center in Plover.

The women’s Team Tamboli, with Wausau West High School curler Amelia Hintz, defeated the Sophia Ryhorchuk team from Minnesota, 9-8. The gold-medal game came down to the final end as Tamboli—leading by two—took out the opponents’ second rock with the final shot, limiting them to one.

Others on the winning team were Jordan Hein of Portage, and Miranda Scheel and Tessa Thurlow from North Dakota.

It was the second close win over the Minnesotans. Team Tamboli edged them 6-5 in the playoff game on Friday.

In the men’s competition, the Wes Wendling team from Wausau, with John Wilkerson and Chris Kirsch also from Wausau, took the bronze medal. After advancing to the final four, they lost 5-4 to Team Sampson from Fargo, N.D., Saturday morning.

Sampson won the championship with another nail-biter over the Kauffman team from Blaine, Minn., 9-8.
