Joe Giammarino and Dominic Borland
Five members of the Pool Players of The Brooke traveled down to Green Valley, Arizona to compete in the 34th Southern Arizona Senior Games hosted by Green Valley Recreation in March 2018. These Senior Games consist of numerous sporting competitions including billiards. Our PPB Club was represented quite well by these five members.
Dan “Oh No!” Stebbins and Jan “Banker” Stebbins each won a Silver medal competing in the Mixed Scotch Doubles 8-Ball event. Congrats, Dan and Jan!
Dan “Oh No!” Stebbins and Jim “The Artist” Morris each took home a Bronze medal for their performance in the Men’s Scotch Doubles 8-Ball event. Dan Stebbins was our only member to win multiple medals. Congrats, Dan and Jim!
Dominic “The Doctor” Borland and Joe “Fast Eddie” Giammarino also competed in the Men’s 8-Ball Scotch Doubles and defeated all opponents except one in taking the Gold medal in the men’s Scotch Doubles 8-Ball. Dan Stebbins and Jim Morris were the only partner team to defeat Dominic and Joe and sending them to the loser’s bracket in the second round.
Dominic and Joe fought back after this defeat to go on and dispose of the rest of the field including a revenge match with Dan and Jim. Dominic and Joe ended their run with seven consecutive wins in this tournament for the Gold! Congrats, Dominic “The Doctor” Borland and Joe “Fast Eddie” Giammarino!
Congratulations to all who competed in the 34th Southern Arizona Senior Games, the Pool Players of The Brooke and SaddleBrooke are proud of your accomplishments. Rack ‘em up!
