The annual Great Southern Eight Ball Classic was held at two different venues over the weekend, featuring teams from Narrogin, Katanning and Albany eight ball clubs.

The A-grade competition was played at the New Cornwall Hotel in Narrogin and the B-grade was held at the Stirling Club in Albany.

The classic is a round-robin event, with every A-grade and B-grade team playing each other over the weekend.

Albany 1 won both the A-grade and B-grade titles for the respective rounds of the classic.

Albany’s George Ninte had the highest A-grade percentage of 85, followed by Katanning’s Ken Meers (75 per cent), Narrogin’s Steve Wood and Scott Cochrane (55).

In the B-grade Albany’s Steven Heymans had a near-perfect weekend with a percentage of 95 to finish ahead of Katanning’s Jarrod Williamson (65) and Narrogin’s James Robertson (65).

The event’s organisers thanked both venues for their hospitality and the players for their sportsmanship and co-operation during the event.

The next round of the Great Southern Classic is on February 6 and 7.
