Sporting Clubs: Gladstone 8-Ball Association Inc.
In 2016, Gladstone 8-Ball Association took the juniors down to Brisbane for the very first time to the Queensland Junior Championships. Billy came runner’s up in the Under 15’s division.
Last year in 2017 Billy went one better and is now the current Under 15’s Queensland Champion. He defeated 14 other juniors for this title and ended the event in first place. The final was best of 5, which he won 3-0.
This gave him an automatic place in the Queensland Juniors Team that travelled to Adelaide for the Australian Junior Championships. Within the teams event for the U15 age group, Billy topped the list with most wins. 6 matches played – 12 games played with 10 wins – 83.33%. For his first year representing Queensland this was a wonderful achievement.
But to top off the whole tournament, Queensland defeated South Australia in the team final 11-3. Making the Queensland Juniors the Australian Junior Champions!
Billy is an Australian Junior Champion as well as Queensland Junior Champion.
