Vero Beach, FL (April 23, 2016) – 2015 TFT Tour Champion Jeannie Seaver won her first event in 2016, at Tour Stop #3 at Cunningham’s in Vero Beach, climbing back to the top of the leader board along the way. Her win over Crystal McCormick didn’t come easy, as McCormick shot lights out all day long. Seaver defeated Kelly Jones, visiting from the Sport-9 Tour, 7-4; Sue Roberts 7-4; and Stephanie Mitchell 7-4, to make it to the final board. McCormick got past Deb Teichert 7-6; newcomer Lauren Madden, 7-1; Julia Spinella 7-4 , and Michell Monk 7-4.
Mitchell and Monk fought through the one loss side to join Seaver and McCormick on the final board. Seaver topped Mitchell 7-3, and McCormick sent Monk home 7-2. In the final match, Seaver easily took the lead over McCormick. However, McCormick wasn’t going to give up easily, showing her strength and making a tremendous come-back to get to the hill after being down 6-2. Ultimately, Seaver won the match which gave her enough points to reclaim the top spot on the TFT rankings. Seaver is followed by Nicolle Cuellar and Roe Guarnero, tied for second. Mitchell is in third place.
