ALLEN PARK, Mich – Australia’s Jason Belmonte was named the 201213 Professional Bowlers Association Chris Schenkel Player of the Year. In earning his first Player of the Year honor, Belmonte won two titles, including the USBC Masters – his first major – and had runner-up finishes in three other major championships: the 2012 PBA World Championship, U.S. Open and 2013 PBA Tournament of Champions. He won the George Young High Average Award, scoring at a 228.81 pace over 422 games, and the Harry Smith Point Leader Award

with 238,903 points. The only major statistical category he didn’t win was earnings, where his $186,465 total ranked third behind 2011-12 Player of the Year Sean Rash’s $248,317 and Mika Koivuniemi’s $227,851. Belmonte, known for his unique two-handed delivery, joined Venezuela’s Amleto Monacelli and Finland’s Koivuniemi as the only foreign-born players to win the PBA’s highest annual competition honor. He was also the first two-handed player to win the award. “This award has a lot of meaning for

me because it represents the fact that you can do it your way and be successful,” Belmonte said. “I’ve taken a lot of criticism but I’m a firm believer in pinning your ears back and going for your dreams.” Belmonte, who owns seven career titles, captured Harry Golden Rookie of the Year honors after winning his first title during the 2008-09 season. “This is an honor every player wants to win but something you can never plan for,” Belmonte added. ”There’s no deadline to achieve it, only a massive bonus for your career if you do.”

Ryan Shafer Wins Second PBA Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award
By Bill Vint - PBA

SEATTLE – Ryan Shafer of Horseheads, N.Y., has been selected by his fellow Professional Bowlers Association members as winner of the 201213 Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award. Shafer, a 47-year-old who has won four titles in a 27-year PBA Tour career, has been a champion for underdogs on the PBA Tour for years, encouraging non-winners to continue their quests for a title, because he understands how difficult it is to win against the greatest players in the world. Shafer’s personal challenges have been complicated because he has bowled his entire career while combating diabetes. Recently he has served as a spokesman for Animas Corp., a company that makes the insulin pump that has made it easier for him to live a normal life. “Winning the Steve Nagy Award has always been important to me because it shows the respect of your peers as a sportsman and someone who cares about them,” Shafer said via e-mail. “I have been through a lot this past week, so it’s hard for me to be happy today about winning. “I know the other candidates

were very deserving. In time, I hope I can reflect and enjoy the fact my fellow players think so highly of me. It’s just tough to do that at this moment.” Eugene McCune of Munster, Ind., Shafer’s closest friend and a fellow PBA Tour competitor, accepted the award on Shafer’s behalf during ceremonies Friday at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Mich., where the Barbasol PBA Tournament of Champions gets underway Saturday. “I want to thank my roommate and one of my best friends in the world, Eugene McCune, for accepting on my behalf,” Shafer said. “My wife Michelle and Eugene were good friends. It’s only right he accept for me because she loved him as a friend as much as I do.” Others who received votes in the Nagy balloting were: Patrick Allen, Dom Barrett, Kenneth Bland Jr., Parker Bohn III, Nathan Bohr, Ryan Ciminelli, Mike Edwards, Andres Gomez, Steve Jaros and Kelly Kulick. Established in 1966, the Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award is named after the late PBA Hall of Famer and founding members of the PBA. A colorful and talented

performer, Nagy made such an impact on his fellow pros that the award was established shortly after his death. Hall of Famer Johnny Guenther won the first “Nagy.”

Youth Travelers’ 14-year-old Madison Perry Bowler of the Week
By Vince Albrecht HACKENSACK, NJ - Hawthorne freshman Madison Perry made being targets on the pin deck a real bummer. The 14-year-old took advantage of prime scoring conditions at Bowler City to blast her way to Bowler of the Week by punishing the plastic-sticks with 246-256-668. Madison regained her focus big time after missing a one-pin spare in the middle game’s fifth frame, she then proceeded to string twelve consecutive strikes and fourteen of fifteen before giving the pins a chance to recover….incredible….super kudos to her! Her team had started slow, but were energized by her performance and followed with several deuces that saw Matt Myers roll 227223-643, Steve Plaszky 226 and Tyler Nappi 202. Even so, in the eye-popping high scoring match, it took Fair Lawn’s 907 finish, high team net to date, to earn two points from a torrid Bowler City III unit who exploded for three huge handicap scores, 10281024-1039 for a 3091, new league team best threesome. BC III high rollers were Teaneck senior DanaMarie Laloo 212-192-226-630 and Bergenfield sophomore Nick Reyes 231-226-627; St Joseph’s freshman Nathan Tombo added 204-191 and AHA freshman Tiffany Sucero 184. In a nail-biter match, Bowler City I used a huge 861/1097 middle game to hold the wood point, 29642928 against Boonton which took the other two games. James Kane rolled a stellar 203-258-192-653, Vin Santoro 213-204, Kristen Kane 209 and Janina Santoro 195 for BC I. Meanwhile, Boonton continued to roll, capturing its fifth straight match, capping it with a mammoth 1046 score. Erik Kattermann rocked the maples with the afternoon’s best set, a triple deuce 216-211-247-674. He received plenty of support from his mates Karl Kattermann 214, Sean McGuire 213 and Randy Devitt 183.
