Gamewell Junior Open Won by Travis Shomaker & Taiwan Harper
10 May 2008
Doubles Golf Croquet
We set-up two courts. We began the task on Tuesday - raking, measuring, marking wickets. After a Thursday night Thunderstorm, we brushed the water puddle Friday morning and hoped for dry weather. We raked again early Saturday morning and set up a canopy for shade. The sun dried the courts as tempertures rose to 86 degrees.
In the final Championship Game, Travis and Taiwan broke the 4 to 4 tie after twenty minutes on 3 back, then scored the next two wickets. Travis made a ten foot jump shot to seal another victory.
Players and family (53 people) enjoyed an early Mother's Day BBQ Dinner. Every player earned a trophy. Taiwan Harper received the 2007 USCA National Award for Junior Player of the Year. Gerry Maldonado, Kayla's Mom, received the 2007 USCA National Award for Volunteer of the Year.
