Fracasso-Verner goes undefeated to claim his second George “Ginky” Sansouci Memorial title


Staff member
The last time Lukas Fracasso-Verner won the annual George “Ginky” Sansouci Memorial Tournament, back in 2018, he entered the 143-entrant Amateur field and promptly lost his opening match. He had to win 12 matches on the loss side to get into the finals against Chuck Allie. The perseverance of fighting back that long and far from an opening-round loss and then winning was a remarkable feat in and of itself, but what made it even more notable was the fact that at the time, Fracasso-Verner had yet to graduate from high school. This past weekend (May 27-29) now 21, he signed on to the ProAm division of the 11th Annual “Ginky” Memorial (the event was not held in 2021) and took the ‘undefeated’ route through a field of 21 entrants.
