Bowling Coaches Hall of Fame Inducts Jeri Edwards
ARLINGTON, Texas, - The Bowling Coaches Hall of Fame has inducted Coach Jeri Edwards in its class of 2013. The former Team USA Head Coach is was honored during International Bowl Expo in a ceremony June 24, 2013 at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. Edwards is the 6th inductee and the first woman to join the elite new Hall of Fame, which began in 2008. She joins coaches Dick Ritger, Fred Borden, Tom Kouros, John Jowdy, and Gordon Vadakin in the Hall, along with 20 Trailblazers representing coaching's early era. Edwards served as Team USA Head Coach from 2004-2009. She is currently the Head Coach of Team Puerto Rico, a position she has held since 2010. Edwards served as Junior Team USA Head Coach in 2002-03, and as Assistant Team USA Coach from 1991-1996 and 2000-2003. Edwards was caught off guard when notified of her election. "What a huge surprise! I am taken aback; to be mentioned in this group is really something. This is such an honor," she said. Surprised she may have been, but her credentials say that she has earned a place among bowling's greatest coaches. While still a college student, she started her coaching career as an instructor for the Professional Bowling Camps in 1981, working closely for a decade with bowling greats Don Johnson and Sam Baca. Today, she is a partner with fellow Hall of Fame member and mentor Fred Borden in the prestigious Borden & Edwards School of Bowling in Akron, Ohio. Edwards has had an amazing career in bowling as a top pro bowler, coach, video producer, tournament director, and co-author of three books including the 360page Handbook of Bowling Psychology she wrote with Borden and Dr. Eric Lasser in 2006. As the Editor of Bowling Digest Magazine from 1993-2000, she wrote dozens of instructional articles, and was a feature writer for U.S. Bowler Magazine before that. A graduate of Penn State University with a degree in Marketing, Edwards has used those skills to promote bowling across the globe for decades. She also used them in the bowling business while on the management team of Borden's Stonehedge Bowling the industry for her knowledge and experience. Another example is that she has the distinction of being the only woman ever to serve as a member of the American Bowling Congress National Board of Directors. She served for three years from 2002-2004. Edwards' family has been the foundation for it all. Her Father John was a very good bowler who coached the youth leagues Jeri and her siblings grew up in. Her Mom Marj loved the competition, yet taught the kids balance in all things, according to Jeri. Jeri's brother Ray has been a bowling ball Design Engineer for Brunswick for many years. Her sister Kathy Zielke was a Rookie of the Year for PWBA in 1993, and sister Brenda Padilla was a 2-time National Collegiate Champion at the University of Nebraska, a multiyear member of Team USA., and USBC National Champion. "I have to thank all of them," said Edwards. "Without my family, none of what I have done would be possible; and certainly Fred Borden has been my mentor and dear friend. And the love of my life Denny Schreiner is always there for me. He has great respect for the sport and athletes' talent and dedication. Bowling was lucky to have him call competitions as a broadcaster for so many years." In addition to selecting one outstanding active coach each year, the Coaches Hall of Fame adds early pioneers who laid the foundation for modern coaches. Joining the list of Trailblazers in the Hall this year are coaches Billy Sixty and Sid Greenberg. Sixty was a coach and promoter who excelled as an athlete and a writer, covering golf and bowling for the Milwaukee Journal while coaching both sports. He later became a columnist for Bowlers Journal. Sixty was active from the 1930's until his death in 1983. Greenberg was a prolific coach who pioneered bowling instruction on television. His first broadcast was in 1947, and he continued to reach the mass audience television provided through the 1950's. Previous Trailblazers honored are Lou Ballissimo, Buddy Bomar, Bill Bunetta, Frank Clause, Ned Day, Chief Halftown, Floretta McCutcheon, Andy Varipapa, Doc Hattstrom, Helen Duval, Don Johnson, Paul Krumske, Bill Taylor, Joe Kristof, Jeanette Robinson, Marion Ladewig, Joe Wilman and LaVerne Carter.
Hall of Fame Coach Jeri Edwards.
Center in her home town of Akron, Ohio She served as President of the Akron Bowling Proprietors Association from 1998-2001. Part of Edwards' success as a coach can also be attributed to her prowess on the lanes as a top bowler. She won the Illinois State Championship in high school before becoming a collegiate champion at Penn State, where she was awarded the prestigious Billy Welu Scholarship in 1983. As an amateur, she won Akron, Chicago, Ohio and Illinois Women's International Bowling Congress championships, and was a member of the 1988 WIBC National Championship Team. As a touring player on the Professional Women's Bowling Association tour, she was a consistent finalist, and won the 1990 PWBA Greater Atlanta Open before leaving the tour to pursue her coaching career and other interests. Her experience as a Tournament Director includes stints a co-director of three American Bowling Congress Senior Masters Tournaments in 1996-98. She used that experience to serve as CoTournament Director of three Professional Bowlers Association events - the PBA Bayer/Brunswick Touring Players Championship from 1998-2000.

PBA Stars to Bowl With Team USA
By Bill Vint – PBA The United States will be strongly represented by PBA Tour stars when Team USA’s men’s and women’s teams compete in the 2013 World Tenpin Bowling Association World Championships Aug. 16-30 at Strike Zone Bowling Center in Henderson, Nev. The Team USA men's roster includes PBA Tour titlists Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas; Mike Fagan of Fort Worth, Texas; Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C.; Bill O'Neill of Langhorne, Pa., and non-titlist John Szczerbinski of North Tonawanda, N.Y. The sixth player on the men’s roster is amateur John Janawicz of Winter Haven, Fla. The Team USA women's squad consists of past and present PBA members Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, N.Y.; Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J.; Stefanie Nation of Grand Prairie, Texas; Shannon O'Keefe of Arlington, Texas; Missy Parkin of Laguna Hills, Calif., and Shannon Pluhowsky of Kettering, Ohio. Five of the six women were on the team that won the WTBA World team title in 2011 in Hong Kong, Team USA's first team gold in that event since 1987. Parkin, who is on Team USA for the first time since 2008, is the new addition. Barnes, Jones and O'Neill were members of Team USA’s 2010 gold medal team in Munich, Germany, the Americans’ third consecutive world team victory. The WTBA World Championships will be a combined men's and women's event for the first time since 2003. The World Championships will award medals in singles, doubles, trios, team, all-events and Masters.
PBA MILWAUKEE OPEN
Continued from page 1
Milwaukee Open top five - Chris Barnes, Pete Weber, Norm Duke, Mike Fagan, Jason Sterner. After Mike Fagan of Fort Worth, Texas, defeated Jason Sterner of McDonough, Ga., 198-182, to start the Milwaukee Open finals, Duke eliminated Fagan in the second match, 238-194. That win set up a semifinal match between Duke and Weber, who are tied for third place on the all-time PBA Tour titles list with 37 each, and who have met each other in televised matches only three previous times in their 30-plus-year careers. In those matches – each in a different decade – Weber held a 2-1 edge (he beat Duke in the 1986 St. Louis Open semifinal match, 247-234; lost to Duke in the 1997 Ebonite Challenge title match in Windsor Locks, Conn., 236-194, and beat Duke, 260-227, in the semifinal match of the 2001 Greater Louisville Open). Duke evened the score in a match that was never more than 10 pins apart, 225-217, when Weber left a solid 9 pin on his second shot in the 10th frame after striking on his first ball in the 10th. But Barnes ruined Duke’s bid to break his titles tie with Weber in an equally exciting title match. Barnes struck on five of his first six shots, building a 20-pin lead after five frames, but Duke responded with a string of four strikes to take a 188-187 lead after eight frames. Barnes struck in the ninth and on his first two shots in the 10th frame, finishing with a nine-count. Duke ran his strike string to four on his first attempt in the 10th frame, but left a 10 pin on his second shot to give Barnes the victory. “My matches with Norm have always been interesting, going back to 2000 when the winner (of the MSN Open in Tucson) was probably the difference in who won Player of the Year,” Barnes said (Duke beat Barnes in that title match, 236-228, and went on to win PBA Player of the Year). “I won today, but I wouldn’t say I evened things with Norm,” he added. “And you hate to win on another guy’s bad break. (Duke) put every shot in the pocket down the stretch, like he always does, and leaving that 10 pin was a bad break. “But I have figured out a way to finish matches,” Barnes added. “I think that’s been a big change in my game over the past few years. I don’t feel like I need to be ahead going into the 10th frame; I just need a chance to force the other guy to make a shot, and this time it worked out.” Barnes said retired PBA Tour champion Mark Baker detected a flaw in Barnes’ approach that helped him correct his wellknown television woes. “There were some mistakes I was making on TV, and when I started working with Mark Baker, he noticed whenever I’d get to a point where I really needed to make a shot to put the match away, I’d get forward with my spine tilt and it would change the result into something bad. Right after that, I went win, win and was a stone 8 pin away from a third title in four weeks. Ever since then, Mark Baker’s been my coach.”

2013 USBC SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS COMES TO A CLOSE
By Matt Cannizzaro - USBC
RENO, Nev. - The 2013 United States Bowling Congress Senior Championships came to a close as 12 champions were crowned at the National Bowling Stadium last week. The introduction of the new 5054 age category provided some high-scoring excitement, and Michael Moore of Nashville, Tenn., outlasted the 25-player field with a nine-game handicap total of 2,268 to claim the inaugural 50-54 Open Division title. The 54-year-old right-hander began the position round with a 34-pin lead and finished with a 723 series to secure his hold on the top spot. The high score on the pair was 750, but Moore was able to keep his cool and fend off his fellow finalists by enjoying the company of the other competitors. "It was tough," said Moore, who averaged 234 on the way to a 2,106 scratch total. "There were some very good bowlers in our group. I just kept my tension down and relaxed by joking with everybody. Everybody was very friendly and had a good time. I didn't expect to win this, but it means a whole lot. It was an excellent experience for me coming out of Nashville."
Janice Eisenhut of Ferndale, Wash., entered the 65-69 Women's Division medal round 28 pins behind leader Beverly McReynolds of La Crescenta, Calif., but raced to the title by firing a 689 scratch series in her final three games. She finished with a 2,133 nine-game handicap total to claim her first USBC Senior Championships title. It was the third time the 69-yearold left-hander earned a spot at the Senior Championships, and she relied on a time-tested philosophy of keeping things simple on the lanes at the NBS. "This is my third time, and I never finished quite this well," said Eisenhut, who paired with Marilyn Brown of Bellingham, Wash., to capture the Division I Doubles title at the 2009 USBC Women's Championships, also held at the 78-lane NBS. "I have a philosophy. If you try to stay clean, you'll be OK. Just don't forget what your basic game is. I've won at nationals before, and it's a neat and fun experience."
The other winners in the Open Division include: Ages 55-59 Raymond Johnston, Albuquerque, N.M.; Ages 60-64 - Albert Manzella, McCalla, Ala.; Ages 6569 - Curt Snyder, Yucca Valley, Calif.; Ages 70-74 - Ron Erickson, Bakersfield, Calif.; Age 75 and above - David Pierce, Walden, Colo. Also claiming crowns in the Women's Division were: Ages 5054 - Cherie McCall, Troy, Idaho; Ages 55-59 - Marcia Fries, Lexington, Neb.; Ages 60-64 Karla Alsgood, Rio Linda, Calif.; Ages 70-74 - Jean Gilbert, Richmond, Va.; Age 75 and above - Stella Nickel, Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada. The tightest race came from the Open Division's 60-64 classification, which saw Manzella edge Gary Keener of Indianapolis by a single pin. Manzella, a 63-yearold right-hander, fired a 681 series in his final three games to finish with a 2,260 nine-game handicap total. "I got on a roll at the end of the
game, and it proved to be very wise because I thought I had a bigger lead," said Manzella, who made his third Senior Championships appearance and also claimed the Class D title at the 2008 event. "When I was told I won by one pin, I nearly had a heart attack. This is my third trip, and it keeps getting better and better every time. We're all champions here. There's no reason for anybody to hang their head." Top prizes ranged from $1,000$1,200. Each winner received a crystal bowling pin, runners-up
earned commemorative clocks and third-place finishers received plaques. The 2013 event featured more than 400 bowlers, who competed in six games of qualifying over the course of the two-day event. The top six bowlers in each division and age classification came back Wednesday night to bowl an additional three games in the medal round, with the top overall scores for nine-games being named tournament champions.

Justin Puchalski Dominates Junior Gold Action at Holiday Bowl
By Vince Albrecht OAKLAND, NJ - – The sport shot used in week fourteen of Holiday Bowl’s Junior Gold league was difficult to master; that is, except for Montville H.S. junior Justin Puchalski. In posting the session’s only “600” set, Justin exploded with a triple deuce 684 [246-203235] in his sweep of Kyle Stefanic whose best was a third game 189. Puchalski raised his average to 185 and closed to within six points of pacesetting Pat Teshima, his teammate on the Montville Mustangs which took first place in the Northwest Jersey Athletic Conference Southern Division. Pat outlasted Pompton Lakes junior Dillon Cilento, 544-524 to earn seven points; despite the challenge of the different shots put down by the house, Teshima has managed to maintain league high average of 192. In other contests, Passaic Tech’s Austin Hackett, with a 205 finish, held onto a share of third place, edging DePaul’s Joe Malyack, 539-537. Paramus Catholic’s Anastasia DeLeon was impressive, firing games of 238-202 in blanking Indian Hills’ Alex McGuire. St Mary’s Reinardo DeJesus had a 240 single in a hard-earned 5-4 win over Kyle Schellberg who posted a 204 opener. Nick Cilento scored 214 in his sweep of Lilly Sigona and Jonathan Mormando took nine points from Lyndhurst’s Lexus Lopez. Rounding out the session’s matchups, Northern Highlands’ Phil Hubelbank squeaked past Passaic Tech’s Isiah Tolbert, 5-4; Bergen Catholic’s Simon Lezaja won five points from Indian Hills’ Graham Mulligan and Ryan McGuire snatched seven points from Ramsey’s Tyler Suser.
