-Macpherson Keeps Lead At $75,000 Storm Challenge

09/17/2001 - PWBA
      CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Four-time PWBA Player of the Year Wendy Macpherson, Henderson, Nevada, maintained her lead today at $75,000 Storm Challenge, hosted at Coral Lanes. Macpherson finished the 18-game qualifying period with 4,017 total pins and a tournament average 223.16.

      "I was very pleased with my performance today," said Macpherson. "Starting the day as the leader definitely gave me a confidence boost. But, now we go into match play which starts a whole new ballgame."

      Macpherson will enter Tuesday's match play rounds with a 24-pin lead over Brenda Norman, Indianapolis, Indiana, who completed today's nine-game block averaging 230.53 and totaling 2,075 pins.

      Leanne Barrette, Pleasanton, California, equaled the tournament high by bowling a 289 in her second game of the day. Similar to Kim Adler, Cocoa, Florida, who yesterday rolled the tourneys first 289, Barrette bowled 10 strikes in a row before leaving the 10-pin standing on her 11th toss.

      Rounding out the top five are Kelly Kulick (3rd), Union N.J., Carolyn Dorin-Ballard (4th), N. Richland Hills, Texas, and Liz Johnson (5th).

      The top 24 players from the two-day preliminaries will continue the tournament in two 12-game match play rounds (Editor note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won during match play rounds) on Tuesday and Wednesday at 11 a.m. Following the completion of match play, the top five will compete in Thursday's championship round, which will be televised on ESPN2 on Monday, September 24 at 8:00 p.m. (EST) and Tuesday, September 25 at 2 p.m. (EST).
