Laurie Stephens and Stephanie Jallen won super-G bronze medals Monday, upping the U.S. medal total at the Paralympics to seven through three days of competition.

Stephens won her second sitting bronze medal of the Winter Games to give her six for her career. She did it in a race that saw U.S. teammates Alana Nichols and Stephani Victor crash and get helicoptered to a hospital.

Jallen won standing bronze in her Paralympic debut at 18 years old.

“It’s something I only dreamed about,” Jallen said, according to TeamUSA.org “I have never been a bigger believer that dreams come true than right now. I’ve imagined it for the last nine years of my life, and in my very first run in the Paralympic Games I score a bronze. I can’t wait to bring it home.”

The U.S. wheelchair curling team lost both of its games Monday, falling to 1-4.
