-Feldman Rockets To The Top At St. Clair Shores Classic

05/15/2002 - Bowling Newsline
      ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. - Michelle Feldman, Skaneateles, NY jumped from the seventh position to the No. 1 seed in the last round of match play Wednesday night at the St. Clair Shores Classic at Shore Lanes. Feldman went 7-1 (Ed. note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won during match play rounds) in the final block to improve her 42-game preliminary total to a 9,552 pinfall and a 217.07 average.

      "In final round of match play a lot can happen," Feldman said. "I knew I was going to have to bowl well to make the TV finals because the top 12 were all in position to make a run at it."

      A 2001 Bowlers Journal International All-American, Feldman averaged 216 Wednesday night in her rise to the top. She completed match play 14-9-1 and posted victories over two other TV finalist in Carolyn Dorin Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas (226-217) and Kim Terrell, Daly City, Calif. (235-193 and 215-172).

      Sliding into the No. 2 position was Kim Adler, Cocoa, Fla. Adler equaled Dorin-Ballard with the best match play record of the field (16-8) while chalking up 9,473 and 214.11. Last week Adler placed second at the Women's International Bowling Congress Queens tournament.

      Dorin-Ballard, who is the reigning Professional Women's Bowling Association Player of the Year, tallied a 9,422 and 212.90. The 17-time titlest qualified for a PWBA record 18 telecasts in 23 events last season.

      Terrell claimed the fourth seeded with 9,398 and 215.19. The northern Calif. native won the first tournament of the 2002 season when she was crowned at the WIBC Queens last week in Milwaukee. The three-time Robby Award recipient is bidding for her third straight title in a row, which would tie a PWBA record for the most consecutive titles won.

      Rounding out the top five is Wendy Macpherson, Henderson, NV. Macpherson went 12-12 in match play and registered 9,369 and 213.07. Macpherson will be making her PWBA record 95th televised appearance.

      The televised finals will take place Thursday, May 16 at 7 p.m. ESPN2 will tape the championships and later broadcast them on Tuesday, May 21 at 9 p.m. (eastern).

-Terrell Reclaims Top Spot At St. Clair Shores Classic

05/15/2002 - Bowling Newsline
      ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. - Kim Terrell, Daly City, Calif., regained control of the leaderboard after the fifth round at the St. Clair Shores Classic at Shore Lanes. Terrell has posted a 9-7 match play record thus far (Ed. note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won during match play rounds) and has boosted her tournament total to 7,694. The nine-time titlest holds a 55-pin lead over Wendy Macpherson, Henderson, Nevada.

      "I've managed to stay lined up almost every round," said Terrell. "I think not having to make a lot of ball changes has helped this week. The lanes haven't played so differently that equipment adjustments have been an issue."

      Terrell helped kick off the Professional Women's Bowling Association season last week by winning the Women's International Bowling Congress Queens tournament. The victory, coupled with her win at the 2001 U.S. Open, was her second consecutive title. A win at the Classic would tie Terrell with four other PWBA'ers for the most consecutive pro titles won.

      Macpherson, who on Tuesday chalked up an 8-0 record, went 4-4 in the today's fifth round. The four-time PWBA Player of the Year has averaged 214.08 this week and has amassed a 7,639 pinfall. Macpherson leads reigning PWBA Player of the Year Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas by 20 pins.

      Following a season where she won a record-tying seven titles, Dorin-Ballard is in the hunt for her first championship of the 2002 season. Although she went 4-4 during today's match play, the five-time WIBC All-American defeated three players among the tournament's top 10 including Macpherson (226-213), Kim Adler, Cocoa, Fla. (184-178) and Leanne Barrette, Pleasanton, Calif. (213-188). Dorin-Ballard's 7,619 mark and 214.38 clip place her 47-pins ahead of Adler.

      Adler earned the best match play record of the morning session going 6-2. Her efforts helped the Floridian move from seventh to fourth. Kendra Gaines, Sebring, Fla. rounds out the top five with 7,570 and 213.82.

      Match play resumes tonight with the final eight-game blocks on 6:30 p.m. At the conclusion of match play, the top five bowlers compete on Thursday, May 16 at 7 p.m. in the championship rounds. ESPN2 will tape the championships and later broadcast them on Tuesday, May 21 at 9 p.m. (eastern).
