The finals of the Wheelchair Championship hit the Championship Arena on Saturday afternoon. Marland Redfield (SL5), was up against Sonja Bennett (SL3) of Kankakee, Ill. The race was 4-2.

Redfield won the lag and continued on to win the first two games. Bennett came back to win game three and Redfield won game four, taking the match hill-hill. In a battle to the end, the championship title would go to Bennett after an unfortunate scratch on the 8-ball by Redfield.

Bennett took home $2,000 for her Champion finish, also becoming the first woman in APA history to win the Wheelchair Championship! Redfield didn’t go home empty-handed, earning $1,200 as Runner-Up.

Richard Fletcher of Vancouver, Wash., was the Sportsmanship Award winner.
