Tournament Director – Derek Crothers
While Kelly, Kan Kan, Sarah, and I were competing in our event at Belles’ we were getting updates in our team chat on how our teammates in VA were fairing.
Derek– this events tournament director was out early, no doubt focusing on the task at hand, running the event. Derek had been on fire with 3 consecutive first-place tournament finishes. We appreciate everything he does for the team and the sport.
JR had a loss in his first round and battled 3 more rounds before losing a hill-hill thriller to Scotty Tomblin, placing just out of the money tied for 13th. JR is getting stronger each week. Thank you for representing and grinding on the tournament trail.
Tiffany Lear, our confident Junior who never ceases to amaze us, placing 5th in a very strong field, losing her last two matches to Chris Funk and Cameron Lawhorne respectively. This young lady’s natural talent is going to take her far.
Chris Funk, another quiet guy (a pattern seems to be forming), had an awesome run– placing 3rd, losing to Orion Oldham and Cameron Lawhorne. Great job Chris, thank you for being part of our team and an example of good sportsmanship.
