The 16th Annual Colorado Junior State Championship

The 16th Annual Colorado Junior State Championships took place at Felt Billiards in Englewood, Colorado, on Saturday, March 9th, 2024. This year's event attracted 20 young players from all over Colorado, along with a familiar face in the girl's division. One young billiard athlete from each of the 10-Ball Divisions, along with the top boy and girl in the 14.1 divisions, all earned paid entry to the 2024 Junior Nationals. "It was great to see so many new faces this year," said Samm Diep, House Pro @ Felt, "I hope to see more young players from neighboring states next year!"
