WPBA Midwest Classic Approaching the Final 16
The Women’s Professional Billiards Association’s (WPBA) Midwest Classic kicked off October 4 at Riverwind Casino in Norman, OK. With a full field of 64 players, this event could see Karen Corr repeat her win from last year, Allison Fisher could take her third event of the year, or someone completely different could take top honors.
The usual suspects have all come through unscathed as yet. Defending champion Corr won her first two matches handily, defeating Jennifer Chen 9-3 and Hsin Huang 9-1. A. Fisher has also performed admirably, whitewashing Susan Mello and then going on to roust Sarah Rousey 9-3.
Meeting A. Fisher in the next round will be Austria’s Jasmin Ouschan, who won her first two matches by narrower margins, defeating Julie Kelly 9-6 and then Megan Minerich 9-7. Monica Webb and Helena Thornfeldt will face each other in the next round—Webb notched wins over Julie Melman 9-1 and Debbie Schjodt 9-2, while Thornfeldt tormented Heather Lloyd 9-2 and My-Hahn Lac 9-5.
Jeanette Lee and Kelly Fisher are poised to play each other—Lee whizzed through Michelle McDermott 9-1 and Val Finnie 9-5, while K. Fisher handed Helene Caukin a donut and then went on to best Cathy Metzinger 9-4.
The Asian invasion team of Ga-Young Kim and Xiaoting Pan are still alive as well. Pan started off her event with wins over Maureen Seto 9-4 and Leslie Anne Rogers 9-3 and will face Vivian Villareal next. Kim bested Jessica Barnes 9-1 and Janet Atwell 9-7 to face off against Sarah Ellerby in the next round.
