2008 Top Women

The top women for 2008!

I will try to include all of 2008's major West Coast tournament results on this page as they occur. So what is a major tournament? Regionals, Nationals, World Championship Qualifiers, and a few of the events that draw from all over their state or region. As well as events that include some of our regions' top players - like the Worlds, or Nationals that take place elsewhere.

Competition Boules!
