-Boomer Back On Top

10/29/2002 - PWBA
      SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Leanne Barrette, Pleasanton, Calif. moved onto the top of the standings sheet after 18 games of the Greater San Diego Open. Nicknamed "Boomer" for her potent hook, Barrette is averaging 232.72 with a 4,189 pinfall. She leads Wendy Macpherson, Henderson, Nev. by just two pins.

      "For the second day in a row I didn't have to make a ball change," said Barrette. "The lanes played a little different than yesterday but for the most part I had great reaction again."

      The Professional Women's Bowling Association leader in titles (3), earnings ($68,085) and averages (216.37), Barrette notched the top nine-game tally with a 2,081 total and a 231.22 clip.

      The Bowler of the Decade for the 1990s, Macpherson recorded a 742 series (206-258-278) to start her round. The four-time PWBA Player of the Year ended today's session with 232.61 and 4,871.

      "I felt good today," said Macpherson. "Anytime you're 578 pins over after qualifying you have to be pleased. But, we're only at the halfway point of the week and anything can still happen."

      Falling back one spot to third, Maxine Nable, Australia, stayed in the hunt with 231.11 and 4,160. Following a 169 to start the morning, the Aussie averaged 230.25 highlighted by a 267 and a 245.

      The tournament leader in round one, Marianne DiRupo, Succasunna, NJ dropped to fourth with 227.94 and 4,077. DiRupo, who earlier this year claimed one of the season's major titles at the Miller High Life National Players Championship, bounced back from an opening 159 and 191 to average 223.28 for her remaining seven games.

      Competing in her PWBA-record 235th consecutive tournament, Tish Johnson, Northridge clawed her way into the top five with a 226.50 and 4,077. Inducted into the Women's International Bowling Congress Hall of Fame earlier this year, Johnson finished her block with a 748 series (214-286-248).

      Cathy Dorin-Lizzi, Linden, NJ made the biggest jump in the standings going from 18th to ninth. Dorin-Lizzi's advancement was aided by a 300 she tossed in the eighth game of the round. For the tournament she has totals of 222.88 and 4,012.

      Defending champion Cara Honeychurch, Australia, is in 20th with 214.27 and 3,857. Brenda Norman, Indianapolis, Ind. was the final top 24 cut at 212.50 and 3,825. Kelly Kulick, Union, NJ, was the last to cash at 211.94 and 3,815.

      The top 24 will compete in a 12-game match play block starting Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 11 a.m. A second 12-game session will take place on Thursday, Oct. 31, at 11 a.m. At the conclusion of match play, the top five bowlers compete on Friday, Nov. 1 at 3 p.m. in the championship rounds. ESPN2 will tape the championships for an October 28 broadcast at 10 p.m. (ET).

-November Is 'bowlers Care For Kids' Month; Top Fund-raisers To Earn Trips To Hawaii

10/29/2002 - Bowling Newsline
      GREENDALE, Wis. - During the month of November, several lucky American Bowling Congress members are going to earn trips to the National Football League Pro Bowl in Hawaii as top fund-raisers in the inaugural "Bowlers Care for Kids Month" program.

      During November, league bowlers across America are encouraged to participate in "Pennies-Per-Pin" league fund-raisers or "Pins Over Average" tournament competitions to raise money to benefit Boys and Girls Clubs of America along with the Earl Anthony Memorial Scholarship Fund.

      The nation's top fund-raising team, "Pins Over Average" tournament winner, league, local association and host proprietor will win trips to Hawaii.

      Bowlers Care for Kids has been created by the ABC as a nationwide charitable activity to invest in our nation's most important resource - children. The month-long drive to raise money in November is planned as an annual event.

      Fund-raising kits, including all materials needed to conduct a fund-raising program, were sent to all ABC league secretaries with their fall league supplies. Leagues that did not receive their kits should contact Michele St. Marie at 800-514-2695 ext. 3316 or visit www.bowlerscareforkids.com for more information.

      Participating league bowlers are encouraged to solicit "pennies-a-pin" pledges from friends, neighbors, relatives or co-workers based upon their league scores for one weekly session during November. Winners will include: the top fund-raising team (all team members and one guest each), the top fund-raising League (league president and guest plus league secretary and guest), the top fund-raising association (two members and one guest each), the top fund-raising proprietor (and a guest), and the top "Pins Over Average" tournament winner (and a guest).

      The future plan for Bowlers Care for Kids is to work with the bowling industry to establish an educational bowling program that will benefit members of Boys & Girls Clubs around the country.
