Team Elwing, including Michael Elwing, Trevor Marquardt (Poynette), Ryan Elwing, Connor Hipke and Tyler Hipke, captured the U18 Junior National title, on March 12, 2017 at the Milwaukee Curling Club.
The final game had 4 blanked ends with steals in the 7th and 8th ends to secure the 3-2 victory. The team beat Luc Violette (Washington), a very accomplished curler that won a silver medal in the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games held in Lillehammer, Norway.
