Seaver snares Florida State Crown

Jeannie Seaver

Going into the season finale on the Ladies Spirit Tour, Jeannie Seaver knew she would be the player of the year before the event ever got started. Owning a 250 point lead on the point list going into the final event of the year tends to assure a player of things like that.

Even with the player of the year honors sewn up, the Florida State Championship was still up for grabs and Seaver came to Capones Billiards in Spring Hill Florida along with 26 other players to try to win it.

At the end of play on day one, Seaver remained undefeated along with three other players. Sunday play got started with Seaver defeated Bonnie Coats 7-6 and Crystal McCormick defeating Stephanie Mitchell 7-2. This set up the match for the hot-seat between Seaver and McCormick, which Seaver won 7-3.

McCormick went to the losers side where Bonnie Coats was waiting and Coats handed McCormick another 7-3 loss to set up the final match between Seaver and Coats for the Championship.

Coats had the chance to take the first set of the finals but missed one 9-ball and scratched on two others as Seaver won the set 7-4.

Seaver collected $800 for the win, and Coats settled for $600 in second place prize money. McCormick and Marvel Mayfield filled out the top four spots.

The Ladies Spirit Tour wanted to thank Simonis Cloth and Rocky McElroy with Capones Billiards for their help in sponsoring this event. With their generous help, the entire field cashed at this event.
