Long Beach Open

Hello friends,

I have officially completed 2 goals listed on my goals in 2014 super stoked on that!

This is quite the story, which is definitely worth telling. So I was expected to arrive in LA from Harrisburg Pennsylvania at 10pm Saturday evening before the tournament that started on Sunday at 9:00 am. Unfortunately, my flight got delayed so I had to stay in Chicago for the night and sleep for about 2 hours then head back to the airport to fly back and arrive in LA at 8:30 am on Sunday.

I was determined to get to the tournament, I was so stressed the whole flight hoping we wouldn’t get disqualified or forfeit or anything. I ended up showing up around 9:05 am after the 4 hour flight thanks to a buddy Jaren for picking me up at LAX.

I was playing with a buddy Jake from Santa Cruz. I was super stoked to get the chance to ball with him. First game of the day we lost in 3. Rough start to the day for sure, yet we were determined to make it through.

We end up winning several matches in the losers then make it to the 5th place match where the wind started going crazy. We ended up winning in 3 15-12. At the finish of that game I began cramping and was looking for anything to stop the cramping. Sadly thanks to my cramping legs we didn’t make it past the crossover and finished in 3rd. Which I won’t complain about. Although it’s easy to do so.

On Friday I found out I am rated a AAA player in CBVA as well. That was one of my goals this summer along with placing a 5th or better in an open. Luckily, I had a great partner and completed both of those goals in one tournament.

Onto the sand…..

Thanks for reading,
