Three new champions were crowned from almost 60 pool players that competed in this year’s Holiday Pool Tournaments. Players had fun and enjoyed some great competition at the three different locations.
Bronze Tournament Held at SARA-MANA Eagles
CHAMPION – DEVIN HIGGINS
The SARA-MANA Eagles hosted the Holiday Pool Tournament for Bronze Division pool players. Thirteen pool players competed for this year’s Bronze title. Devin Higgins won the championship after a fierce battle with Bonnie Kerwin. Bonnie, the highest finishing female, masterfully worked her way through the field of competitors to beat Devin and force a final game to decide this year’s winner. Honorable mention for this tournament was Johnny Miller. Johnny played in some pretty tough games to finish fourth.
