On the human interest side of this event, one player displayed the tenacity of womamhood. Adriane Rivera, a D+ player, competed 8 months pregnant! Despite carrying an extra 30 pounds and all the other stresses, Adriane gave a lot of players a run for there money with a 4 – 2 win/loss record and a double hill match that could have easily gone her way.
