Billiards Results 2008
The billiards championships held Sept. 16 at the Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center in Silver Spring had a lot of great play and fellowship, including three terrific storylines that led to gold medals.

The day's best drama unfolded among men 72-92 as Greenbelt's Jim Harbaugh, a three-time gold medalist, lost his opening match but rallied to reach the finals, where he had to best Joe Trolier of Potomac in two matches to win another gold. Harbaugh also won the tournament in 2006, 2003 and 2002.

Jim Matzel of Silver Spring also had to make a comeback in order to capture gold from Randy Simmons of Waldorf. Matzel had a match loss to overcome and needed all six rounds of the tournament to claim victory.

Nancy Callan of Wheaton continued her amazing 2008 Games, winning gold against Peggy Childers of Baltimore. Callan has captured gold this year in lawn bowling, shuffleboard, billiards, discus, javelin, softball throw, football throw and will try for another in the Oct. 20 golf tournament.

A special thanks goes out to Betty Timer, Wally Brockway and the staff at the Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center for professional and courteous hosting of the event. Coffee and doughnuts and lunch snacks and sandwiches were a huge bonus, and the running scoreboard of matches kept everyone abreast of the action as the results came in.
