Kim White Takes Second Houston Event!

The ladies showed up in style to play in the fifth stop of the year in the Fast Eddie's Olhausen 9 Ball Tour Sponsored by Schuler Legacy Cues on Sunday, April 30, in the rocket city, Houston, TX.

Sixteen ladies came to duke it out for the 'queen of the hill' honors. Top picks of the field were Kim White, Amanda Lampert, Belinda Lee, and Helen Hayes.

Rebecca Goodnight of Houston proved it was 'nighty-night' time as she put players out on her way to a fourth place finish. Great shooting!

Helen Hayes of College Station storm rolled onto the Tour at the first of the year and her game is improving with each performance. Helen started her run with a loss to the Tour's point leader, Amanda Lampert, 7-5, but buckled down on the one loss side with victories over Diana Cardona, Sherry Smith, Natalie Mans, Amanda, and Rebecca Goodnight for a great third place finish.

Proud new homeowner, Belinda Lee of Houston, showed what a big heart she has as her job and new home don't leave her much time to devote to the game she loves. She started her race through the winner's bracket with triumphs over Tasha Salandanan, Sherry Smith, and Rebecca Goodnight to move into the finals of winner's bracket.

Kim White of Houston, winner of the Tour's January event, hates to see the money leave town. Still sporting a bandage on her injured finger, she had victories over Corina Campbell, Becky Bullard, Amanda Lampert (7-6), to meet Belinda Lee for the hot seat. Kim prevailed with her second hill-hill match in a row.

With Kim holding down the hot seat, Belinda defeated Helen, 7-3, to meet Kim again for an all Houston final match.

Kim was not to be outdone as she took the final set, 7-3. Both ladies showed grace and dignity while under pressure. Congratulations!
