Singh leads The Return of BGO
Blue Glove Open: Fall 2022, Week 1
The BGO is back with a vengeance. Veera Singh won her first two BGO matches, against Sebastian Parvizian and Kiran Mathura, to take a lead in the standings after Opening Weekend. Singh was tested most by Mathura in BGO Primetime, with 8-4 the scoreline.
Her two wins mean Veera Singh is named our Player of the Week for Week 1.
Yael Lan, who led her spring group, kicked off the season with Tomas Mulita on Friday night in Primetime at Bethesda Country Club. She prevailed 6-5. Mulita also renewed his rivalry with Ariana Ipakchi the next evening, when the two went the distance. This time it was Mulita emerging at 8-7.
Kevin Parvizian got his first taste of victory in his first-ever BGO match, defeating Ted Wang and rise to the top of Group D. Lara Dabney and Julia Ross also fought to a close finish. Dabney took the win 5-3 to tie group leader Parvizian on points.
"I want to play as often as possible!" said AJ Mangin, and he meant it with a semifinal trip in the Sweet Spotter Series tournament this weekend and a BGO match that he lost to David Gong, 8-2.
