Baker Squad Stages Comeback to Win Wagar KO
The Lynn Baker team roared back from a 64-IMP halftime deficit to take the championship in the Wagar Women’s Knockout Teams. Baker’s teammates were Kerri Sanborn, Lynn Deas, Beth Palmer, Irina Levitina and Karen McCallum.
The runners-up were Valerie Westheimer of New York NY, Hjordis Eythorsdottir of Huntsville AL and two players from the Netherlands: Marion Michielsen of Rotterdam and Meike Wortel of Diemen.
The Westheimer team got off to a strong start, posting wins of 15 and 49 IMPs in the first two quarters to lead by 64 IMPs at the break. The second half, though, was all Baker, who outscored the four-person Westheimer team by 35 IMPs and 59 IMPs in the last two quarters.
