10/09/2002 - PWBA
      PASADENA, Texas. - Kim Adler, Cocoa, Fla. was all business during the fifth round of the Greater Pasadena Open at Diamond Lanes. The tournament leader went 5-2-1 during the morning stanza (Ed. note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won during match play rounds) to help compile a 232.14 average and 8,208 pinfall.

      "Heading into today I didn't want to look past this round because the scores are so high and anyone can get hot and push me back a few spots," said Adler.

      Adler has a 10-5-1 overall record, second to only Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas and Dede Davidson, Las Vegas, Nev. who are each 11-5-0. Heading into tonight's action she leads Rachel Perez, San Marcos, Texas by 95 pins.

      A top 10 finisher in three of the last five tournaments, Perez was steady throughout the day with a low score of 200 and a high of 268. The Texan went 5-3-0 and for the tournament is 9-7-0 with a 230.67 average and a 8,113 pinfall.

      "I tried to stay calm all morning. I had some ups and downs with a few 200s and a few 230s," said Perez. "Mostly I was paying attention to what the lanes were telling me what to do, whether it was move in or change balls."

      Following a difficult start where she went 3-5-0 in round four, Dorin-Ballard climbed back on the horse and tried again with an 8-0-0 record. The Player of the Year bested four players in the tournament's top 10 including Adler (241-226), Liz Johnson, Cheektowaga, NY (235-170), Kim Terrell, Antioch, Calif. (193-192) and Michelle Feldman, Skaneateles, NY (269-204). Dorin-Ballard's 227.52 and 8,066 leads Johnson by 12 pins.

      Despite a 7-9-0 overall record including 4-4-0 today, Johnson managed to hold a position among the top five for the fifth straight round. She has totals of 230.70 and 8,054.

      Charging from ninth to fifth, Marcia Kamrowski, Boca Raton, Fla., posted the second highest eight-game block of the session averaging 232.75 and 1,862. The former All-American from the University of Florida closed out the round with a 299 and a 776 series (247-230). For the tournament she is 8-8-0 with a 227.67 clip and 7,981.

      With eight games and 240 bonus pins available, nine players trail Kamrowski by 166 pins or less for the final spot in the championship round.

      The final eight-game block will take place tonight at 6:30 p.m. At the conclusion of match play, the top five bowlers compete on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. in the championship rounds. ESPN2 will tape the championships for an October 14 broadcast at 10 p.m. (ET). ESPN2 is scheduled to re-air the finals on October 20 at 4:30 p.m. (ET).
