Karen Corr WPBA New Jersey State Champion

Karen Corr

Primetime Sports Bar & Grill hosted the J.Peachauer North East Women's Tour July 12 &13t h.  It was the New Jersey State Championship for 2008.   The room itself, the food, and the staff are always fantastic.  The event had $3000 added to the prize fund with Heinekin as a co-sponsor, as well as a Qualifying spot for the US Open that will take place in Oklahoma at the end of July.

The event had 28 highly skilled participants as many members of the WPBA joined the regular crew.  Sunday's returning players included Karen Corr, Tiffany Nelson, Julie Kelly, Monica Webb, Megan Minerich, Romana Dokovic, My-Hanh Lac, and Iris Ranola.

Sunday's play had many fans interested in basically a mini- pro event with some great match-ups.  Karen Corr defeated Tiffany Nelson 7-2 in the quarter finals, and Iris Ranola 7-2 in the semi-finals.  Iris and Tiffany battled to the hill with Iris getting another chance with Karen. Another hill match with Karen capturing the NJ State Championship title..   

Because so many of the final eight were already attending the US Open, there was a bonus match on Sunday to determine who would win the qualifying spot between Sharon O'Hanlon and Asia Cycak.   Asia won that match 7-3.  We wish Asia great success at the US Open..

Congratulations to all who participated!  See you at the next event in September.  Check the website www.JPNEWT.com
