-Dorin-Ballard Encroaches On Johnson's Lead In Sebring

09/04/2001 - PWBA
      SEBRING, Fla. - Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas, chipped the lead of Liz Johnson, Cheektowaga, N.Y., to just 42 pins following Tuesday morning's Round 3 action in the $50,000 Foundation Games V, underway at Kegel Training Center.

      Dorin-Ballard, who has won five titles thus far in 2001, fashioned a 1,321-pin six-game series on the 32-foot, short oil pattern to boost her 24-game total pinfall to 5,207 and her average to 216.95. Johnson, who has led since the conclusion of play Sunday night, cooled off with a 1,231-pin block and dropped her average to 218.70.

      Wendy Macpherson, Henderson, Nev., occupies third place with 5,190 pins and a 216.95 average, while Anne Marie Duggan, Edmond, Okla., holds fourth with 5,159 pins and a 214.95 average. Hometown favorite Kendra Gaines of Sebring is in sixth place, averaging 210.16 with 5,044 pins.

      The top 24 scorers move into Round 4 Tuesday evening, beginning at 5 p.m., on the alternate "long oil" pattern (41 feet of dressing laid down from the foul line). The tournament continues Wednesday with Rounds 5 ("short oil") and 6 ("long oil"), and the top four players following the conclusion of play Wednesday night advance to Thursday's championship round. The championship finals will be broadcast on ESPN2 Monday, September 10, at 8 p.m. and re-aired Sunday, September 16, at 1:30 a.m. (all TV times are Eastern). The four finalists will be aiming for a $9,000 first prize, and Travelodge Hotels Inc. is offering a $50,000 bonus to any woman rolling a perfect game in the televised championship round.

-Liz Johnson Sizzles After Two Rounds At $50,000 Foundation Games V

09/04/2001 - PWBA
      SEBRING, Fla. - Liz Johnson, Cheektowaga, N.Y., continues to have the hottest hand at the $50,000 Foundation Games V, rocketing to a 132-pin lead over the rest of the field following Monday's action at Kegel Training Center.

      Johnson's morning block of 2,082 pins for nine games put her 18-game total at 4,108 and gave her a 223.22 tournament average to date. Following Johnson is Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas, whose 2,034 total in Monday morning's action moved her into second place, past Anne Marie Duggan, Edmond, Okla., with 3,886 pins and a 215.88 average. Duggan remains in the top three by virtue of a 18-game total of 3,872 pins, while the 2000 PWBA Player of the Year, Wendy Macpherson, owns fourth place with 3,856 pins.

      Early co-leaders Marianne DiRupo, Succasunna, N.J., and amateur Lucy Sandelin, Tampa, Fla., sit in fifth and 20th places, respectively. Macpherson, Henderson, Nev., is seeking her first title of the year, as are Duggan and DiRupo. Johnson owns one 2001 championship, while Dorin-Ballard closed out the first half of the PWBA Tour in July with five titles. Sandelin is gunning for her first career PWBA title.

      The top 24 scorers move into Round 3 of the tournament Tuesday morning, with action beginning at 10 a.m. All 24 will bowl six games on the 32-foot, "short oil" pattern, then break and return at 5 p.m. for six more games in Round 4, on the 41-foot, "long oil" pattern. The tournament continues Wednesday with Rounds 5 ("short oil") and 6 ("long oil"), and the top four players following the conclusion of play Wednesday night advance to Thursday's championship round.

      Defending Foundation Games champion Lisa Bishop, Belleville, Mich., failed to make the cut to the top 24. Bishop, who struggled with chronic shoulder pain for much of the 2001 PWBA Spring/Summer Tour, finished her 18 games in 35th place with 3317 pins and a 184.27 average.
