As we progress into the National intermediate Snooker tour and with two events remaining for the 2022-2023 season we will see many battles yet to be played out on the green baize.
Christine Carr from Kildare is back at number 1 with a good chance of taking the number 1 spot at the end of the season. Christine held number 1 in 2017, 2018 and 2020 finishing last season number 3. Her progress at Intermediate level is second to none.
Joanna Ward from Kildare sits in number 2 spot so far, having held number 2 in 2020 and finished 6th last season, Joanna has the opportunity to finish the season number 1 if she does well in the last two events.
Tina Keogh from Offaly is currently 3rd place having been number 2 last season. Tina is one of our most consistent players on tour and like Joanna can cause an upset and capable of taking number 1 spot by season’s end.
Grushenka Arnold from Dublin finished her first season on tour number 12 which was a great result for her and is currently holding 4 spot, however if she wants to keep in the top 4 she can’t take anything for granted going into the final two events.
Elizabeth Lynch from Offaly finished 14th in her first season on tour and is holding 5th spot at the moment, she is very capable of a top 4 place but she hopes to keep within the top 8 by season’s end which would be a great result for her
Stephanie Foley from Carlow who was number 1 the last two seasons is down to 6th spot and is hoping to stay in the top 8 by the end of season. She has been out due to injury for the last two events and is likely to remain out of play for a while yet, we wish her a speedy recovery
Louise Maher from Kilkenny, finished a credible 5th last season is currently 7th at the moment and is hoping to improve her standing again this season
Jennifer Earle from Dublin is holding number 8 place at the moment after finishing number 4 last season but due to exams and college she has missed a number of events, she hopes to stay in the top 8 this season.
Carrie Randle from Wicklow who was 7th last season is down to 10th at the moment and Valerie Maloney from Laois who was 8th last year is down to 12th spot so far. Megan Randle from Wicklow is holding 9th spot as she did last season, Suzanne Randle from Limerick is down to 14th place from 10th last year. Emirjeta Doda from Dublin is holding 11th place as last season while Michelle Morris from Donegal is down from 13th place to 15th at the moment. Nafeesa Naz from Dublin is just holding onto number 16th spot down from 15th last year. Laura Hughes from Limerick who was 16th last season is just out of the top 16 at 17th place so far
Katie Kiernan from Louth is currently 13th on the rankings in her first season on tour, a great result for her
So still a lot to play for as the season nears its end in March 2023. We wish all our players every success during the rest of the season.
