September 24, 2014 (Denver, CO): For the second year in a row, Predator Group, through its Poison Billiards division, is outfitting the U.S. Junior National Team at the upcoming WPA World Junior 9-Ball Championships November 15-19 in Shanghai, China. The Billiard Education Foundation (BEF), who qualified these nine student-athletes through their annual Junior National 9-Ball Championships, is once again thrilled for their underwriting support.
Each of the nine team members, including leader Earl Munson and coach Karen Corr will receive a custom Sportek polo shirt in patriotic colors, printed with event and national logos. This financial support enables the organization to direct more funds to its other youth billiard programs.
