-Leanne "Boomer" Barrette Holds Down Tournament Lead

09/18/2002 - PWBA
      PITTSBURGH, Pa. - It was business as usual for the best match play performer on the Professional Women's Bowling Association tour. Leanne Barrette, Pleasanton, Calif maintained a 46-pin lead over Anne Marie Duggan, Edmond, Okla. to stay on top of the leaderboard at the Three Rivers Open at the Princess Lanes.

      "My timing was not quite right today," said Barrette. "I was very lucky that the scores against me were pretty low because I still managed to win five matches."

      The PWBA leader in overall match play records with a 135-93-4 mark (.581 win pct.), Barrette went 5-3-0 (Ed. note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won during match play rounds) in the morning session helping her to a 7,677 pinfall and a 215.20 average. Of her five wins, four were decided by less than five pins.

      Duggan, who on Tuesday night went 6-1-1, gutted thru a 4-4-0 session to total 7,631 and 215.17. The five-time Women's International Bowling Congress All-American posted victories over three players in the top 10 including a 246-221 win over Barrette.

      Rachel Perez, San Marcos, Texas, moved up two spots to third place with a 6-2 round. Perez ended the morning with a 712 series (267-235-210) including victories over Duggan (267-202) and Barrette (235-194). Her sums of 7,517 and 213.14 place her 31-pins ahead of Marianne DiRupo, Succasunna, NJ.

      DiRupo stayed among the to five for the fifth straight round with 7,517 and 213.14 while Kendra Gaines, Sebring, Fla. was fifth with 7,502 and 211.82.

      Hot on the heels of Gaines and in position to steal the final TV spot, Tammy Turner, Ogden, Utah (6th - 7,490, 211.47), defending champion Michelle Feldman, Skaneateles, NY (7th - 7,461, 212.38) and Kelly Kulick, Union, NJ (8th - 7,408, 209.05) all are within 94-pins of making the championship round.

      Kulick registered the top eight-game series of the day with a 1,734 and Turner notched the highest score of the tournament with a 287 in her second game.

      The final match play rounds will take place at 6:30 p.m. At the conclusion of match play, the top five bowlers will compete in the ESPN2 stepladder finals on Thursday, September 19 at 7 p.m. ESPN2 will televise the event on September 23 at 10 p.m. (ET).
