-Feldman Ranks First Among The Pros At Doubles Challenge

05/30/2002 - PWBA
      ROCKFORD, Ill. - Michelle Feldman continued to build on her lead after round two of the PWBA Women's Collegiate/Pro Doubles Challenge at the Cherry Bowl. The native from Skaneateles, NY notched a 228.2 average during Thursday evening's eight-game block to push her tournament tally to 3,782 and 236.37.

      "It's nice to be among the top qualifiers this week because the oil conditions are a true sport pattern and it shows in a lot of the scores," said Feldman. "It's easier for the pros to adapt to these conditions because we're bowling sport patterns almost every week. The college players aren't used to this kind of lane condition so I'm hoping I can help my teammate with the benefit of some experience."

      A nine-time titlest, Feldman claimed her first PWBA title of 2002 season when she won the St. Clair Shores Classic two weeks ago in Detroit. Last season in Rockford, Feldman was defeated in the championship match 205-202 by Liz Johnson, Cheektowaga, NY.

      As the top pro qualifier Feldman will be teamed up with April Ellis, Jackson, Tenn., who led the collegiate field with a 197.5 average. The freshman from the Pikeville College bowling team was an all-events champion in the Tennessee State Bowling Championships.

      "It is very exciting to be bowling with a player of Michelle's caliber," said Ellis. "To be leading the college field that includes some of the top collegiate bowlers in the country is quite an honor."

      Reigning Professional Women's Bowling Association Player of the Year Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas averaged 232 in the morning session of the second round to secure the second slot among the pros. Dorin-Ballard's 16-game pinfall of 3,606 and a tournament average of 225.37 was 35 pins ahead of Johnson.

      Dorin-Ballard will pair up with Mandy Bedwell, Terre Haute, Ind., who was second among all collegiates with 3,121 and 195.06. Bedwell is a senior from Indiana State University. The 1996 Indiana Junior Bowler of the Year was an all-events champion at the 2000 Indiana State Bowling Championships.

      The third duo of the top 24 teams will consist of Johnson and Krystal Havelka, Machesney Park, Ill. Havelka finished the second day of competition with 3,112 and 194.5. A graduate from Harlem High school, Havelka is a freshman at McKendree College.

      Local PWBA'er Kris Hall, Rockford, Ill. made the top 24 pro cut finishing 19th with a 199.18 clip. Local collegiates that made the top 24 college cut include: Megan Roman, Rockford, Ill. (7th, 191.25, Rock Valley), Tiffany Cady, Machesney Park, Ill. (13th, 184.56, Rock Valley), Tara Wincapaw, Machesney Park, Ill. (21st, 180.25, Rock Valley) and Amy Armalis, Berwyn, Ill. (22nd, 178.68, Northern Illinois).

      Friday the top 24 collegiate and pro qualifiers will be paired as teams based on their 16-game totals. The teams will carry their combined totals into the next three rounds of match play starting with two eight-game rounds on Friday, May 31 at 11 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. The final round of match play will take place on Saturday, June 1, at 11 a.m. At the conclusion of match play, the top five teams will compete on Sunday, June 2 at 3:30 p.m. (central) in the ESPN stepladder finals.

      College bowling USA is jointly funded by the American Bowling Congress and the Women's International Bowling Congress and is recognized as the sport's national intercollegiate governing body.
