-Piesczynski Sizzles In First Round Of The $50,000 Jacksonville Open

09/23/2001 - PWBA
      JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Janette Piesczynski, Cheektowaga, N.Y. scorched the 45-women field in today's first round of the Jacksonville Open, hosted at the Cassat's Batt Bowl, by finishing her nine-game block with a 2,197 pin-fall and a 244.11 average.

      "I felt like I bowled well last week and that gave me confidence going to Jacksonville," Piesczynski said. "Nine games is a long format so I'm going to have to keep it up tomorrow because a lot can change."

      Piesczynski holds a 74-pin margin over Brenda Norman, Indianapolis, Ind., who averaged 235.88 and closed out her round with a 794 series (278-248-268). A winner last at the Storm Challenge, Leanne Barrette, Pleasanton, Calif., ranks in third position with a 2,118 pin-fall and a 235.33 average.

      Kim Terrell, Daly City, Calif., and Kendra Gaines, Sebring, Fla, tied for the day's high-game with a 289. Terrell currently sits in fourth place with 2,103 while Gaines is in ninth with a 2,054. Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland, Texas, who has five titles in 2001, rounds out the top five with a 2,101. Dorin-Ballard is just two pins ahead of four-time PWBA Player of the Year, Wendy Macpherson, Henderson, Nevada.

      Other Floridian PWBA members including Kim Adler (Cocoa), Barbara Batt (Jacksonville), Leslie Blandford (Jacksonville), Amy Dillon (Miami), Gaines (Sebring), Corrine Ham (Cocoa), Millie Irizarry (Port Charlotte), Marsha Kamrowski (Boca Raton), Laura Moriarty (Daytona Beach), Donna Smith (Orange Park) all finished the day in contention to make the tournaments top 24.
