11/06/2000 - PWBA
      LAS VEGAS, NV - DeDe Davidson, Las Vegas, Nev., averaged 256.88 to capture the first round lead in the Sam's Town Invitational at Sam's Town Bowling Center in Las Vegas, Nev., Monday afternoon. Davidson shot back to back 279 games, 269 games, and had other high games of 260, 238, and 235 and a low game of 226 to lead the field by 97 pins.

      "I'm very happy," said Davidson. "I felt good today. The lanes were fairly close to what I practiced on yesterday, which helped me put the right ball in my hand today. I also had a lot of support here today from my mother and my friends."

      Davidson's performance also broke a record of total pins in a 56 game tournament format for a first eight game block. Davidson had a pin total of 2055 breaking the record by 104 pins. Marianne DiRupo, Succasunna, NJ, held the record with a 1,951 pin total in Sam's Town in 1998.
