Paesano Bocce Club held their 2022 Individual Singles Championship Sunday June 25th

We have a Men’s and Wmen’s Single Champion and bragging rights for a full. Under extremely hot weather (97 Degrees) that us Oregonians aren’t used to we had a “Fantastic” Singles Tournament. 16 men and 16 women faced off to see who would be crowned. The men finished in the heat with Ben Mititiero beating out Jon Epley for the championship. Rick Cervi beat out tournament director Brad Cotton that nearly collapsed after their game to get 3rd place. Unfortunately, we didn’t complete the women’s championship until Monday Morning.  The top four women all agreed to play out the championship on Monday in more reasonable weather day to crown a champ.
I am extremely proud of all who played under these tough conditions and especially proud of the 16 women that stepped up to let everyone know we have some pretty good women players at the Paesano Bocce Club. This was the first time we were able to have a women’s division!

First place: Ben Mitittiero, Second Place: Jon Epley, Third Place: Rick Cervi

Under much cooler weather the top four women faced off on Monday Morning. With much less weather stress Martha Bueche defeated Becky Trullinger for the Women’s Club Championship. Becky came in 2nd and Kathy Zak defeated Cathy Blazak for 3rd place.

On Wednesday June 30th the Paesano Bocce Club hosted the Tigard / Tualatin High School Upward Bound students.

Forty plus High School students spent the day learning and playing Bocce. There was an Introduction and History of Bocce presented by Mario Pompei, President Paesano Bocce Club. A brief review of the rules of bocce was followed with a demonstration by Dino Gavazza and John Benagni. The group came prepared and already had the 40 students divided into 8 teams. They were divided into two pools of four and pool play began with a Paesano Bocce Club member acting as coach/referee on each of the four court
It was an honor to host these students. Very enthusiastic, energetic, intelligent, sharp and a willingness to learn. They were very cooperative and polite. A great bunch of young adults!
Here are a few pictures from the day!
What is Upward Bound?
“Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.”
Here are a few pictures of the day:
