-Johnson Continues Torid Pace At Paula Carter Classic

09/11/2001 - PWBA
      DAVIE, Fl. - To say Liz Johnson, Cheektowaga, New York, is "en fuego" would be an understatement. After completing round three of competition this morning at the $50,000 Paula Carter Classic, Johnson increased her lead over the rest of the field by tallying 1,324 pins in six match play games. Johnson's pin-fall in this morning's round was complimented by a 5-1 match play record earning her 150 bonus pins (Editor note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won during match play rounds). Her tournament total entering round four, which will begin today at the Don Carter University Lanes at 2:00 p.m., is 5,407 pins (219.04 avg.)

      A former U.S. Open Champion, Johnson holds a 189 pin margin over second place Marianne DiRupo, Succasunna. Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richmond, Texas, sits in third place with 5,181 pins while Kendra Gaines, Sebring, Florida is in fourth position with 5,070 pins. Michelle Feldman, Skaneateles, New York and Tennelle Grijalva, Orange County, California, round of the top five in a tie with 5,033 pins respectively.

      "Unbelievable," Johnson said. "Today I made a hand position change which seemed to keep me right on track. The scores so far have not been real high so I've just tried keep winning my matches and limit my mistakes."

      Last week in Sebring, Fl, Johnson led the Foundation Games tournament in five of six rounds en route to her second PWBA tournament title of the 2001 season. Her tournament average of 219.04 is 8.70 pins above her season average of 210.34.

      In addition to Gaines, area PWBA competitors that are still in contention include Kim Adler (Cocoa) and Marcia Kamrowski (Boca Raton). Adler, who started the day in 20th place, moved up to 16th while Kamrowski, moved from 24th to 13th place with the help of a 5-1 match play record.

      afternoon at 2:00 p.m for two additional six-block rounds. The top five following Wednesday afternoon's action advance to the championship round on Thursday (Sept. 13) beginning at 2 p.m. The Paula Carter Classic finals will be televised on ESPN2 Monday, September 17 at 8 p.m. (EST).
