Five Lexington club members played in the Knoxville tournament June 16 and 17.
Here are the members' results.
Betty King, fourth place, 9-6, +328
Margaret Yoder, eighth place, 8-7, +269
Victoria Bledsoe, 11 place, 7-8, +323
Will Scott, second place, 10-4-1, +619
Eric Yoder, 13th place, 6-9, -406
In addition to her fourth-place prize, Betty won the Howard Prichard/Millicent King award, given to the player in Division 3 who finishes highest above his or her seed. The prize was $100 and a copy of "Bob's Bible."
Lexington club members returned with a net gain of 44 rating points. Woohoo!
Other Kentucky players were Mark Edward Owens of the Pikeville area in Division 1, who finished 6-9, -226, and Carrie Petrocelli, who lives west of Louisville and was in her first tournament. She finished 1-14, a tough beginning, but she was lauded for handling her struggles graciously. We're hoping to see her and her husband, who also plays, at our club meetings occasionally.
