Macpherson finished the day with a 231.33 tournament average and holds a six-pin lead over Kelly Kulick, Union, N.J.

      "It was important to get off to a good start today," Macpherson said. "It's been awhile since I had a block like that. Today's round definitely will give me confidence heading into the rest of the week."

      The high game of the day belonged to Kim Adler, Cocoa, Fl, when she electrified the capacity crowd on hand by rolling a 289 in her seventh game of the day. Adler bowled 10 strikes in a row before leaving the 10-pin standing after her 11th toss.

      Other Floridian PWBA members including Deanna Andrews (Pensacola), Kendra Gaines (Sebring), Nitraya Grova (Coral Springs), Millie Irizarry (Port Charlotte), Terry Rogero (Ft. Myers), Krissy Stewart (Cape Coral), Carolyn Trump (Ft. Myers), Marsha Kamrowski (Boca Raton), Amy Dillon (Miami), Corrine Ham (Cocoa), Dina Wheeler (Royal Palm Beach), Laura Moriarty (Daytona Beach), all finished the day in contention to make the tournaments top 24.
