An excellent poolplayer

At the finals of the 2022 Wheelchair Championship, two players—David Carr of Midfield, Alabama and Steve Ranz of Fairfield, Ohio—played an intense final match of pool, a sport of precision and patience. 

The two spent the game going back and forth. At first, Ranz held his place in first with two winning matches to Carr’s zero, but after Carr won his first win, there was no stopping him! In the end, Carr brought in the championship with a final score of 2-4.

Carr took home $2,000 for his stunning Champion finish. Ranz didn’t go home empty-handed though—he earned a whopping $1,200 as Runner-Up.
