Atwell again in Port Clinton

Janet Atwell

The sixth stop on the Jacoby Cues Great Lakes Tour was held on February 11th & 12th at Rack Attack Billiards Caf? in Port Clinton, Ohio. This tournament welcomed players from around the Midwest, including the #20 player in the WPBA, Janet Atwell. Atwell, who had won the last event at Rack Attack in December, made it to the winner-side final before being challenged; there she would fall to friend and Ohio native Dawn Fox by a score of 7-6. Fox made her way to the hot seat with victories over Lonnie Fox 7-2, Becky Ball 7-5, and Gail Grecar 7-4. Atwell had dispatched her first three opponents, Erica Saulino 7-3, Stephanie Goens 7-2, and Tracy Johnston 7-1. After falling to Fox, Atwell bounced back with a semi-final win over CJ Jerome 7-6 to secure a spot in the finals. There her steady play earned her a 9-5 title victory, leaving Dawn Fox with second place and the qualifier to the WPBA Great Lakes Classic.

The tour staff would like to send special thanks to the Rack Attack owners, Matt Heath and TJ Velliquette, for picking up this spot last minute due to a cancellation. Please check out this warm and friendly establishment as they have tournaments most every night of the week in which ladies play free. As always, many thanks to our sponsors.
