The Lions have been training since September for the National Collegiate Billiards Championship. Last Saturday, February 23rd, 2013, three of my players qualified to play in the Nationals in late July. We had 23 players compete from five Universities for four positions.
Stephen Wyatt (Lindenwood) won 1st place over Ben Reynolds (University of Arkansas) qualified in second place. The Lindenwood ladies swept the two qualification spots with Federica Bertolini 1st and Kelly Zahn 2nd.
I could not be more proud of all of my team's performance as everyone played to their best. Each player carried themselves with a pride and stroke technique that indicates future success and has become the Lindenwood Billiards team calling card. Great job everyone.
