NAPT 2017 Summer 10-Ball Classic


I'm finally home from completing in the NAPT 2017 Summer 10-Ball Classic in Grayslake, Illinois.  The field size was 64 strong ladies!   It still feels unreal that I placed in the top 8 (5th place to be exact)! I went to this event with no other expectations or goals but to play my best while embracing the process of competing, one shot at a time. I'm so thankful to God for opportunities to compete and meet so many wonderful athletes from the young to the seasoned and even national/international champions. I appreciate the support and enco...uragement of my family and friends; you guys are the real MVPs. Thank you William Baker & Frank Phillips for sparring with me and The Zone Sports Performance Coaching for your advice & critique. Thank you Quball1 Billiards. Thank you to my opponents, for despite win/loss, we all celebrated and encouraged each other throughout the event. Now that's some kinda special 💕!



Special thanks to my sponsors Triple Nines Bar & Billiards and Coins of the Realm for believing in me! Some special tourney moments to me:


* only used jump cue once

* best finish in women's pro event * first in women's pro event to make the $ rounds with 3 consecutive wins on the winners' side of bracket


To recap, you can watch featured matches from the Railbirds Youtube channel.  Here's my first match in the event:
