Johan and Stephanie Skantze were gold medalists in the Mixed 3.5 Division.

The results are in from the inaugural Savvy Slam at Rowlett Park in Tampa with tournament organizers extolling the strong level of competition. “It was really, really good competition,” said Lisa Krawetz, co-founder of Pickletopia as well as a top-level player.

Krawetz did not play but business partner Debbie Cagnino did. She and Deanna Morrow earned bronze medals in the Women’s 4.0 division. “I had to quicky change my mindset and focus on playing, which was challenging,” Cagnino said.
