Day 2 for North America at WPA World Junior Championships

Nick Evans Undefeated

December 10, 2013 (Englewood, CO):  Day two concluded at the 22nd Annual WPA World Junior & Wheelchair 9-Ball Championships at the Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa. It’s been a rough start for the North American juniors as many of them have eliminated one another in early rounds.


With only 16 players remaining in the boys division, Tyler Styer, Sergio Rivas, and Brendan Crockett are set to pair off on the one-loss side, while Nick Evans from St. Peters, Missouri remains the final team member still undefeated.


On the girls side, an unfortunately match-up between Maine’s Taylor Reynolds and Minnesota’s April Larson eliminated the 13-year-old, leaving Reynolds and Canada’s Kayla Roloson the two remaining girls in the final eight, both with one-loss.


Canadian players David Moyer and Charles Guimont, along with U.S. players Joey Bourgeois, Jr. and April Larson have thus far been eliminated. Matches resume tomorrow.
