|Comments:||"Journeymen" affectionately known as the"J-Men" were ranked among the top 10 Mens Open Teams in the NW Region in 2006.
We encourage Elite level players that don't have the time to commit to a regular practice but would like to continue to play at the highest level to contact Billy.
We have done better every year since our inception in 1998 when we were "Bushmasters" and won the NW Regions Masters Division. We then evolved into a men's open team in 2002. We achieved 3 wins in the Mens Open Division at NW Regions 05 and have a good chance to do better in 2006.We played in two Elite level tournaments in 2006.The first was DUI in Davis where we averaged 10 scores per game and placed 5th out of eight by winning the bottom bracket final 11-8 over over Darkstar (the 7th ranked Men's Open team in the North West).At Cal States we beat the 7th seed as a 12th seed and just missed averaging ten scores over 5 games by only 1 point. 2007 was another year of improved play. In April the J-Men scored 12 in a close 15-12 loss against a perennial April Fools finalist "Downtown Brown". 2007 was also the first year that the J-Men were invited to play in the Elite Pool at DUI in Davis at the same time as the other invitees. In Cal-States at Santa Cruz in June we were down 8-4 at 1/2 time against Contra and out scored them 11-4 in the second half to win 15-12. In our next game against Santa Cruz we scored 11 in a row in another comeback win after being down 7-4. The J-Mens performance at Cal-Stats also raised our National Mens Open team ranking from 92nd to 72nd out of the top 300 mens open teams in the nation.Lastly at the Labor day tourney in Santa Cruz we were 1 point away from beating the 2006 National Master Champions Throwback-That's right 1 point-Grrrr!We play in about 4-6 Men's Open Tourneys every year. We are also a really fun team to play with.The J-Men are currently ranked 10th in the NW Region and we truly believe that continued improvement will be the standard for us in 2008.
