Wrap Up (Regional Tournament)

Congratulations to Lisa Jones, Jacquelynn Boughner, Dot Skarritt, Jeremiah Millar, and Michael Abbott for representing the NODA at the Regional 501 All-Star competition held at Airway Lanes on Saturday, May 8.

Unfortunately, there was an extremely low turnout this year on both the ladies and mens sides.  As of Noon, there were only 3 women signed up to shoot, whereas 4 are required in order to send a representative on to Nationals.   At the last minute, Jacquelynn and Dot signed up and the women were all set to play.  After the round robin was played, Dot and Mary Beth Collins (from Indiana), were tied with 9 points each.  They played a best of 5 tie-breaker with Mary Beth defeating Dot and going on to the National competition in Stamford, Ct.

On the men's side, we had 10 players.  It was decided we would only have 1 round with everyone shooting against each other.  Congratulations go to Jeremy Previe from Grand Rapids who narrowly defeated Jeremiah Millar by one point to be the men's representative at Nationals.  Michael Abbott finished in 6th place.

The National 501 Championships were played in Stamford, CT on August 6th.  Congratulations to Miles Gallagher - Youth National Champion, Stacy "The Wish Granter" Bromberg - Womens National  Champion, and Darin "Big Daddy" Young - Mens National Champion.  Another big congratulations to Mary Beth Collins from Region 4-4 for her fantastic shooting.  She faced Marilyn Popp (Past National Champion and currently #5 in the US) in the first round.  Mary Beth defeated Marilyn 3-1.  Next, Mary Beth defeated Andrea Taylor (ranked #9 in the US) 3-1.  In the semi finals (Top 4), Mary Beth faced Cali West (ranked #3 in the US) and lost 3-1.  Considering Mary Beth probably had the toughest route to the finals, she represented Region 4-4 very well.
