US Curling Power Rankings – March 2, 2017

With USA Nationals in the rear-view mirror, we move onto the last portion of the 2016-2017 curling season. As mentioned last week, there is a bit of re-arranging in the rankings based on the results in Everett. Here we go:

Men

  1. John Shuster – Champion at USA Nationals, going 11-0 for the week. (PW: 3)
  2. Todd Birr – Finalist at USA Nationals; 6-3 in round-robin, then won the Page 3/4 game over Craig Brown and semifinal over Brady Clark. (PW: 4)
  3. Brady Clark – Semifinalist at USA Nationals, going 7-2 in round-robin to secure a spot in the Page 1/2 game. (PW: 5)
  4. Heath McCormick – Missed playoffs at USA Nationals. (PW: 1)
  5. Craig Brown – Made playoffs at USA Nationals. (PW: 2)
  6. Pete Fenson – Made tiebreaker at USA Nationals. (PW: 6)

Women

  1. Jamie Sinclair – Champion at USA Nationals, finishing 7-1 for the event. (PW: 3)
  2. Nina Roth – Finalist at USA Nationals; 5-2 in round-robin, won semifinal over Cassie Potter. (PW: 1)
  3. Cassie Potter – Semifinalist at USA Nationals; 5-2 in round-robin. (PW: 4)
  4. Cory Christensen – Missed playoffs at USA Nationals. (PW: 2)
  5. Jessica Schultz – Missed playoffs at USA Nationals. (PW: 6)

 

The World Curling Tour schedule is more or less completed, with only a couple of Grand Slam events and the European Masters left. Therefore, unless there is a major disparity in performance between Sinclair and Roth at the Champions Cup and the Women’s Worlds, these will be the final ranking positions for the season.
