Allison, a 17-year-old Providence Day student, and her bridge partner from Florida beat out 19 other teams -- from across the United States and China -- to become World Bridge Champions in their age division.
The girls also won the Baron Barclay Youth Pairs event, and were the first female pair to ever win. As winners, Allison and her partner, Asya Ladyzhensky, each received a trophy and a $1,000 college scholarship.
Young Achievers highlighted Allison the other week about her bridge skills and her love for the game.
The Youth North American Bridge Championship was started in 2005.
