-Dirupo Takes Charge In Round Two At Dallas Open

07/16/2002 - PWBA
      DALLAS, Texas. - At the completion of 18 games at Dallas Open at Don Carter West Marianne DiRupo, Succasunna, NJ moved to the top of the leaderboard with a 218.50 average and a 3,933 pinfall. The five-time Women's International Bowling Congress All-American leads Tiffany Stanbrough, Oklahoma City, Okla. by 46 pins (215.94, 3887).

      "I've been very consistent the last two days," said DiRupo. "My pinfall was almost exactly the same both rounds and I haven't had to make too many adjustments to keep up with my scoring pace."

      A six-time titlest over the course of her 11-year career, DiRupo's last championship came in 1998 when she won the Visionary Bowling Products Classic.

      Stanbrough, who at the close of day one stood in 14th place, moved 12 spots in the standings with the help of a 2,056 second round tally. The left-hander posted the top pinfall of round two getting the morning started with a 704 series (247-223-234).

      Kim Adler maintained the third position with totals of 211.11 and 3,798. Adler is the Professional Women's Bowling Association's earnings leader ($36,360) thus far in 2002 and ranks third in competition points (5,095) and seventh in overall tour averages (215.45).

      Kim Terrell, Antioch, Calif. climbed into fourth place (211, 3,798) finishing the second session with a 687 series (222-227-238) while Australian Cara Honeychurch was fifth with 210.61 and 3,791.

      Michelle Feldman, Skaneateles, NY notched the top score of the day with a 278. Defending champion Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas stayed in ninth with 208.91 and 3,755.

      Findland's Pauliina Aalto was the final player to make the top 24 cut with 199.16 and 3,585. Amateur Brinda Burks, Bossier City, LA was the last to cash in 32nd with 186.44 and 3,356.

      The tournament continues on Wednesday, July 17 and Thursday, July 18 at 11 a.m. with 12-game match play rounds each day. At the conclusion of match play, the top five bowlers compete in the ESPN2 stepladder finals on Friday, July 19 at 7 p.m. The tournament finals will air on July 22 at 8 p.m. (ET).
