When the Slop Shots, a pool team based out of The Alley in Mokena, arrived in Las Vegas earlier this month for the American Poolplayers Association’s 8-Ball World Championship, seven of the eight team members were making their first appearance at the massive event.

Thus, expectations were not super high.

The Slop Shots, though, surprised themselves with a deep run in the event. They tied for 33rd out of 720 teams and were the highest-finishing team from Illinois.
