North Central Regional Closeout

Huge congrats to Jacob Heppner for his participation and performance at the 2013 North Central Regional Games in Chicago!  When the smoke cleared, Jake's Day 3 efforts left him at 18th place -- easily in the top half.  Downright amazing in a field that included the best of the best from thousands of Open competitors in the region.

Look forward to hearing stories from Jake, Mike and others that made the trip up there.  However, one of the many highlights had to be winning his heat of Event 4, "The Hundreds."  Pretty cool also that headed into the last event, he was in the Top 12 and got to compete against all the other he top finalists.  See the footage in the Event 7 video below!

For many of us aging warriors, the thought of qualifying for and competing in Regionals would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  For Jake, I have a feeling that this experience will only stoke the competitive fire even hotter.  Look forward to seeing the hardest working athlete in the Bubble work even harder, and pushing the envelope even further next year. Well done, Jacob.
