Michelle Monk Undefeated For Second BAAT Season Win

Michelle Monk took her second win this season on the Tiger Bay Area Amateur Tour over the weekend of May 24, 2008. The $500 added event was held at Strokers II in Tampa, Florida.

Monk went undefeated through the field, sealing her spot in the final round with the hot-seat match win under her belt. While on the one-loss side, Helene Caukin and Tammy Gillis moved past Tour Director Stephanie Mitchell and Bettina Chase - Mitchell and Chase settled for a respectable seventh/eighth finish. Gillis and Caukin followed immediately in fifth/sixth, while Stephanie McFarlin snagged fourth place.

Leslee Davis-Blaikie ran into Dee Minor in the semi-final round. The set was slower than anticipated, so the ladies were put on the shot clock, but in the end Minor held the lead and finished the set with a victory over Davis-Blaikie.

The final round saw Monk and Minor do battle, but Minor was unable to stop Monk's momentum. At a score of 4-1, Monk broke and made two balls, made a tough shot on the two-ball and finished off Minor with a three-nine combination to end the match by a final of 5-1.

The tour would like to thank Strokers II (run by Jose Delrio and Dan Leonard); and its sponsors Tiger Products, Fury Cues, Stroke It Wear, idcardexpress, Old Chicago and many others. The next $500 added event will be held at Strokers Billiards in Palm Harbor, Florida, on June 14, 2008. For more information on the tour visit www.baattour.com
