-Duggan Controls Round 3 At Storm Challenge

11/06/2002 - PWBA
      LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Storm pro staffer Annn Marie Duggan, Edmond, Okla. too control of round three at the Storm Las Vegas PWBA Challenge. The 20-year veteran of the Professional Women's Bowling Association went 6-6-0 in match play (Ed. note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won) and is averaging 215.03 with a 6,631 pinfall after 30 games.

      "This has been a tough year for me, maybe one of my worst," said Duggan. "Today I didn't win a lot of matches but I felt like I bowled well physically."

      A owner of 15 career titles, Duggan rocketed to the top of the standings sheet with the help of some big wins including a 278-193 tally over Marcia Kamrowski, Boca Raton, Fla., 245-193 over Carol Norman, Ardmore, Okla. and a 247-211 victory over Kendra Gaines, Sebring, Fla.

      Kim Adler, Cocoa, Fla. trails Duggan by 19 pins with totals of 215.40, 6,612 and 5-7-0. Adler lost five of her first six matches but bounced back by winning four of six.

      "I didnt' bowl well in the first half of the day but I picked it up the last six games," said Adler. "I guess my plan for tomorrow is to try to meet in the middle and win some more matches."

      Gaines stayed in the top four for the third straight day with 212-.36, 6,611 and 8-4-0. The former TEAM USAer's eight victories tied her for the second most of the round.

      Tiffany Stanbrough, Oklahoma City, Okla. stayed in the hunt to make her fifth TV finals appearance of the season. The lefthander went 6-6-0 en route to 212.26 and 6,548.

      The tournament leader in rounds one and two, Marianne DiRupo, Succasunna, NJ dropped back four spots to fifth with 211.50, 6,525 and 6-6-0.

      Henderson resident Wendy Macpherson made the biggest move of the session jumping from 21st to eighth. Macpherson boasted the top match play record of 10-2 and has sums of 203.83 and 6,415.

      With 360 bonus pins still available in round four, defending champion Leanne Barrette, Pleasanton, Calif.is one of 11 players in position to make a run at the top five championship rounds spots. Barrette is currently in 14th with 203.10, 6,273 and 6-6-0.

ESPN2 will televise the event on November 11 at 10 p.m.(ET). ESPN2 is scheduled to re-air the finals on December 8 at 5 p.m. (ET).
