Ladies Spirit Tour / Stuart, FL
by Rick Davis
Billiard News – The July 14-15 weekend brought the Ladies Spirit Tour to Amy’s Billiards in Stuart, FL, where the 38-player field was drilled by WPBA pro Monica Webb as she claimed her first tour win of the season.
On the winners’ side Webb, ranked fourth on the WPBA, blazed a trail through the chart after her first-round bye. Webb took four matches to reach the hot seat match, not giving up more than three racks in any of them. In the hot seat match Webb continued her streak and destroyed Jeanne Seaver, winner of the season’s first stop, 7-3.
Over on the west side Debbie Schjodt, who has also claimed an event this tour season, drilled Druanne Battista 7-1, while WPBA pro Helena Thornfeldt did the same to Simone Hospedales by the same margin. In the quarterfinals Thornfeldt edged out Schjodt 7-4 then turned the screws against Seaver for another 7-1 smackdown.
Thornfeldt made her way to finals, earning it through a host of great matches, although Webb would not let up with the title in her sights, and in no time Webb was on top again for the last time in the event, taking the title from the 7-4 win in the finals.
