Thank you to all the players who came out for our Women’s Match Play Tournament at Game Exchange on February 15th. We had 24 players compete for 8 rounds of group match play qualifying (7/5/3/1 scoring) with a one game final to determine places first through fourth.
Congratulations to the winners! First – Laura McCarthy Second – Shannon Stein Third – Summer Puente Fourth – Hannah Martinez (first time competing!) Rookie move…I forgot to take a photo. Trust me, they were all smiling.
