Young Austin Murphy of Folsom CA and a frequent player at Hard Times Billiards in Sacramento CA, took 1st place at the BCA National 14 and under tournament in Michican this weekend.

Austin faced Landon for the finals of the Winners brackets and won easily. Landon took the one-loss bracket and had to defeat Austin twice. Landon won the first match and then lost a hill-hill finale. Austin had to make a tough bank on the 8 ball to get out.

Austin will be 12 later this year and has won the right to represent the USA in the World Jr competition in Austia.

Congratulations to Austin and Landon both. Hill-hill in a National event is the stuff dreams are made of and both of them deserve recognition for their accomplishments.
