RENO YOUTH BRIDGE ALUMS ACHIEVE ACBL SECTIONAL LIFE MASTER STATUS

 

May 23,2018:  Matt Oakley and Emma Miller, two Alumni members of Reno Youth Bridge have achieved their Matt Oakley & Emma MillerSectional Life Master rating in the ACBL.  Matt graduated from the Davidson Academy in Reno last year and attended Oklahoma University this year in his first year at college.  Emma graduated from McQueen High School in 2016 and just finished her sophomore year at American University in Washington D.C.  She will be attending Tulane University this coming year.  Both Matt and Emma have earned sixty (60) Master Points in ACBL tournament play which puts them past the 50-point requirement to become rated as Sectional Life Master.  Matt was the beneficiary of two consecutive Reno Youth Bridge Achievement Program Scholarships and is joining up with this year’s winner of that same award, Sarah Macharg, to compete in the NABC Junior Championships in Atlanta this summer.  Emma also is planning to go to Atlanta this Summer after competing successfully in Philadelphia last year’s NABC Junior Championship. Both these students and Sarah Macharg received online instruction from RYB teacher Dan Green using Bridgebase.com and its popular Bridge Base Online platform.
