After a busy few days at the Ozone Billiards U.S. Amateur Open, Dominic Jentsch proved to be one of the most active participants.

The 16-year-old German import snapped off the open 9-ball division and the Dragon Promotions World Junior 10-Ball Championships. Jentsch, a three-time junior national champion in Germany, also placed fifth in the 14.1 division of the professional Lucasi Hybrid Invitational Classic.

The women's 9-ball event was won by Stephanie Mitchell of Wesley Chapel, Fla. Joe Bartlett, another Florida native, snapped off the seniors 9-ball event.

In the juniors 10-ball division, Jentsch faced recent BEF National Champion Austin Murphy in the final. Fitting for a match between two of the world's top junior cueists, the final went to hill-hill, with Jentsch winning the deciding rack.

In the final of the girls division, Liz Lovely topped two-time junior national champion Briana Miller.
