Maryland Teens Win Marbles Championship

Posted: Updated:

WILDWOOD, N.J. (AP) - Two teenagers from Maryland have all the marbles.

Marilyn Fisher and Dominic Rudakevych of Middletown Valley won the 91st annual National Marbles Championship in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Thursday.

Forty-two boys and girls competed in the event, in which contestants shoot 13 target marbles outside a circle while trying to keep the shooter marble inside the ring.

Fisher defeated Kelsey Baran of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, to become queen of the tournament. Her brother was boys' champion last year.

Rudakevych beat Luke Gaffigan.

Rudakevych says suspense is his favorite part of the game.

Fisher appreciates the skill needed to win.

The 13-year-olds received $2,000 scholarships, watches, trophies and crowns.
