Gina Lipsky Wins JPNEWT’s Frazer Pa Event

Gina Lipsky overcame the Hot Seat loss to Pam Treadway and went on to win JPNEWT's 8th stop at Harry Metzger's Rack M Up in Frazer, PA.

Pam started out strong with wins over Melissa Jenkins, Lauren Galen and Gina Lipsky to win the hot seat 7-5 over a 4-year MIA Tour Terror, Laura Metzger.

This was Laura's first Tour event since 2001 and she showed great form with wins over points leader Caroline Pao, Charlotte Reeder, and a Tour newbie Ellen Yu.

Gina posted wins over Kathleen Lawless and Carol Clark before being shown the left side of the chart by Pam, 7-5. Gina then made headway over Barbara Stock, Sherry Pouncey, and put Laura Metzger into 3rd place on Sunday to rematch with Pam in the finals. This time, however, it wasn't as close as the first match-up. Gina played deliberately and cautiously against the talented rookie Pam and won the finals handily, 9-2.

JPNEWT thanks Harry and Sam Metzger for welcoming back the tour and looks forward to coming back next November. We also thank Pechauer Custom Cues for their continued support.

JPNEWT's next event is at Clifton Billiards on December 3rd/4th. It is an Amateur and Semi-Pro only event with $500 added and a Qualifier to a 2006 WPBA event.
