Local poolplayers take second in North Platte

Team members of “Strokin’ 9” include: (left to right) Jamie Messersmith, Lois Holbein, Bill Mach, Randy Holbein, Rolland Closson, Taylor Walker and Steve Walker.

“Strokin’ 9” out of Pete’s Lounge in Gothenburg fell just short of advancing to the American Poolplayers Association (APA) 9-Ball World Pool Championships in Las Vegas when they lost in the finals of the Western Nebraska APA 9-Ball World Qualifier held recently at Eagles Club in North Platte.  The team earned a cash prize for their second place finish.  Twenty-eight teams from all over the region competed in the tournament which qualified the top three teams for the APA 9-Ball World Pool Championships held in Las Vegas in August.
