GJ’s Louie Lee wins national marbles title

WILDWOOD, N.J. — Louie Lee proved himself the current dominant male player in his sport, crushing his opponent in a national championship match Thursday in New Jersey.
The 11-year-old boy from Glade Park shoots marbles. He shoots them so well, in fact, that he scored five “sticks” — think of a tennis player serving and slamming four aces in a row— to beat Zayd Hadjali, 14, of Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, by a score of 8-2 in the best of 15 game series.
