-Barrette Is The Top Seed For Finals At Empire State PWBA Classic

06/22/2002 - PWBA
      LATHAM, N.Y. - Leanne Barrette, Pleasanton, Calif., held on to her lead to claim the top seed for the televised finals in the Empire State PWBA Classic at Bowlers Club in Latham, N.Y. Saturday night. Barrette continued her march to the top by compiling a 19-5 won-lost record and averaging 233.33 overall.

      Barrette is fourth on the PWBA all-time career earnings list with $947,993 just $52,007 shy of the million dollar mark.

      After the first round, Barrette was situated in 12th place, moving up to 4th by round two, and 2nd place at the cut to the top twenty-four match play finalists. During match play, she maintained her hold on second for the fourth round and made her move to the top after the fifth round. Barrette will be looking for her first title of the year.

      "I'd much rather be first or second for the show," said Barrette, "Sometimes those shootout matches can be pretty tough to get out of."

      The other four athletes looking to take the title from the top seed are 2nd seed Maxine Nable, Australia, 3rd seed Wendy Macpherson, Henderson, Nev., 4th seed Michelle Feldman, Skaneateles, N.Y. and 5th Kim Terrell, Antioch, Calif.

-Booming Scores Help Barrette Overtake The Lead

06/22/2002 - PWBA
      LATHAM, N.Y. - The high scores throughout the field were plentiful, but Leanne Barrette, Pleasanton, Calif., threw some mighty games herself Saturday morning enabling her to move into the lead at the Empire State PWBA Classic at Bowlers Club in Latham N.Y. The two-time Robby Sportsmanship Award winner holds a 31-pin lead over Maxine Nable of Australia going into the final round of match play Saturday evening.

      "The conditions this morning were more of a wet-dry," said Barrette, "I made some adjustments to play the lanes more direct and it really paid off."

      Barrette, the wide hooking right-hander nicknamed "Boomer", put together five games over 245 this morning and at one point compiled a 278, 263 and 267 for an 808 three-game set. She has so far has put together a 12-4 won-lost record and is averaging 235.08 for the tournament.

      Nable, the leader the previous two rounds, slipped to second place, with a 11-5 won-lost record and a 235.05 average, in spite of tossing some big numbers herself, including a 289.

      The other bowlers in the top five working to make the last cut into tomorrow's TV finals are Wendy Macpherson, Henderson,Nev., in third, also with a 11-5 record; Michelle Feldman, Skaneateles, N.Y. holding down fourth place and a 9-6-1 record; and Liz Johnson, Cheektowaga, N.Y. in fifth place with a 11-5 record.

      High scores were being shot throughout the morning squad with Tennelle Grijalva, Yorba Linda, Calif leading the onslaught with her second 300 game of the event. Also flirting with perfection were Macpherson and Feldman, both shooting 299.

      The lone Albany area bowler, Linda Follett, had to withdraw from the event moments before the start of today's action due to a hand problem. Follett, part of outstanding group of local bowlers who competed this week, attempted to throw a few shots and made the decision to withdraw.

      "I'm very disappointed," said Follett, showing her torn and blistered hand, "All I wanted to do was finish strong, but I just couldn't get a good release. I thought it would be better to give the alternate (Chele Schirmer, Bel Air, MD) a chance to bowl." According to PWBA rules, if a player withdraws, the athlete finishing the tournament in 25th position takes her place with a loss of the withdrawing players' bonus pins as a penalty.

      The twenty-four remaining lady athletes return Saturday evening, June 22nd for their final eight games of head-to-head competition. At the conclusion of tonight's squad the field is reduced to the top five who return for a stepladder finals to be broadcast live, Sunday, June 23rd on ESPN at 4:30 eastern.
