Allison Fisher Set to Defend Pacific Coast Billiards Title
WPBA Pacific Coast Classic / Lincoln City, OR
The Women’s Professional Billiard Association’s Pacific Coast Classic begins Thursday, October 2, with a full field of 64. Hosted by the Chinook Winds Casino & Resort in Lincoln City, OR, this event will conclude Sunday, October 5.
Fifth-ranked Allison Fisher is the defending champion at this event, and she will have to fight off a slew of determined competitors. New number-one-ranked WPBA player Kelly Fisher will be looking to add another title to her resume for the year, while number-two-ranked Karen Corr will be trying to move up the ladder again and retake the top spot on tour. And third- and fourth-ranked players Xiaoting Pan and Ga Young Kim, respectively, will be trying as hard as they can to continue their upward movement on the tour.
A. Fisher’s first match will be against Maureen Seto, while K. Fisher will meet Irene Henry in the first round. Other interesting first-round match-ups include Morgan Steinman versus Yu Ram Cha, Julie Kelly versus Val Finnie, Jeanette Lee versus Bonnie Plowman, and Sarah Rousey versus Miyuki Sakai. Also, Mary and Michelle Rakin, both formidable former junior players, are both in attendance and should prove well worth watching.
The first round begins at 11 a.m. Thursday. Visit InsidePOOL for the latest news in the sport of billiards and pool.
