54th USHA National Three-Wall Nationals

Carlos Gracia won the raffle for the welcome rug. 

Lucas County Rec. Center., Maumee, Ohio - It was an anti-climactic day for many of the fans on Monday. Instead of shooting for titles in the Open Singles and Doubles finals David Chapman spent the Sunday night and Monday morning in a Toledo hospital, likely a victim of dehydration. Fans will be happy to know that David made it on his scheduled flight back to St. Louis late Monday afternoon.

Sean Lenning earned a singles and doubles slam with the defaults, teaming with Marcos Chavez for their second consecutive title.

Jennifer Schmitt won her first national singles title with a convincing final win over Megan Mehilos.

Toledo Highlights included George Miller winning his 10th masters title and becoming the newest Grand Master, while Phil Kirk teamed with Jim Corrigan of Cleveland to win the masters doubles in a tiebreaker in front of the hometown fans and the cameras of Buckey Sports Cable Network.
