Portland, Oregon was the location for the 3rd and final North American Cup of the season…

The “hot bachelors’ as dubbed by the NY Post had a great competition!

Jason Rogerscaptured the gold defeating his Olympic teammate /clubmate James Williams 15-12.    Tim Morehouse (that’s me!) and Ben Igoe finished 3rd. 

In the semi-final matches, Williams defeated Morehouse 15-14 and Rogers beat Ben Igoe 15-8.   There were 120 competitors overall.

Overall, was a solid performance for me although obviously I would have liked to have done a bit better.  Jason won his first NAC so we’re all happy he can take that monkey off his back.(So to speak!)

Our clubmate Daryl Homer finished 7th and Sean Buckley finished in the top-16. (He looks like a force to be reckoned with in the future)

Other interesting notes:
* James eat some bad Denny’s and spent the night puking…
* James also woke up on the day of the competition at 3am Portland time thinking it was 6am and that he had to get ready for the competition…
* We compete next in Madrid, Spain on May 20
