New TD, Briana Miller, comes from the loss side to win JPNEWT season opener


Staff member
The former J. Pechauer Northeast Women’s Tour director and the current tour director met in the 2023 season opener of the tour this past weekend (Saturday, March 4th, spilling deep into the wee hours of Sunday, March 5). The two of them – Linda Shea (former) and Briana Miller (current) – came within a game of double hill in a winners’ side quarterfinal, but when the smoke cleared, it was Shea advancing and Miller heading off to the loss side. Shea followed her over immediately afterwards, following a winners’ side semifinal loss to Kia Burwell, last year’s tour rankings champion. Miller and Shea almost had a rematch in the event’s quarterfinals, but Shea got eliminated in the matches for 5th/6th and Miller went on to challenge Burwell in the finals, eventually claiming the event title. The $500-added event drew 30 entrants to Shooter’s Family Billiards in Wayne, NJ.
