-Dorin-Ballard Takes Hold In $50,000 Jacksonville Open

09/24/2001 - PWBA
      JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Defending champion Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas, took over the tournament lead today at the $50,000 Jacksonville Open. The 1999 winner finished her nine-game block with a 2,093 pin-fall en route to a 4,194 tournament total. Dorin-Ballard holds a 33-pin margin over Kim Terrell, Daly City, Calif, who completed the 18-game qualifying rounds with 4,161 pins.

      "There have been a lot of high scores this week so far," said Dorin-Ballard. "I'm just trying to stay lined up and keep up with the pace. This is a week where you can lose 20 or 30 pins in any given game."

      A runner up for the 2000 Player of the Year award, Dorin-Ballard has posted 14 consecutive games of 210 or better. Her tournament-leading average of 233 tops a list of 10 other competitors who are averaging 220 or above. This season Dorin-Ballard ranks first in the PWBA in averages (214.71), earnings ($86,670), competition points (11,640) and titles (5).

      As the day began Terrell delighted the capacity crowd at the Cassat's Batt Bowl when she opened the second round with an 809 series including a 300-game. Terrell's perfect game was her first this year within the PWBA tour. She joins 10 other tour members that have posted a 300 in 2001.

      "You can never take bowling 300 lightly," said Terrell. "It really gives me a spark going into the next few days."

      Trailing Terrell in third place is Kim Adler, Cocoa, Fla. (2,118 pins), who began the day in 12th place but averaged a 232 in today's block. Brenda Norman, Indianapolis, Indiana, ranks fourth with a 4,086 total while Janette Piesczynski, Cheektowaga, N.Y., rounds out the top five with 4,076.

      The top 24 players from the two-day preliminaries will continue the tournament on Tuesday at 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. in two eight-game match play rounds (Editor note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won during match play rounds). On Wednesday at 11 a.m. tournament action continues for the last eight-game block of match play.

      The top five bowlers will compete in Thursday's championship round, which will be televised on ESPN2 on Monday, October 1 at 8:00 p.m. (EST) and October 7, at 2 p.m. (EST).
