Bowling News USA - October 23, 2012 It's Good To Be, Anne Marie...
(2012 USBC Senior Queens Champion Anne Marie Duggan)
United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer Anne Marie Duggan of Edmond, Okla., defeated fellow hall of famer Dana Miller-Mackie of Albuquerque, N.M., on Tuesday to win the 2012 USBC Senior Queens presented by Storm.
Duggan, who turned 50 last month, defeated Miller-Mackie, 199-173, at the International Training and Research Center to claim the title. The event featured a field of 56 of the top senior women bowlers in the country.
Duggan threw the Storm Lucid in the final.

In the title match, Duggan jumped out to a quick start, striking on five of her first seven shots and taking more than a 50-pin lead.
"It was really fun to win something again," said Duggan, who won 15 career titles on the women's professional tour. "Obviously I don't put the time into my bowling that I used to, but to still see that I can throw it well when I need it, feels really good."

Duggan, who entered the stepladder finals as the third seed, had to win three matches to take the title. In the semifinal, she defeated Char Hammel of Las Vegas, 210-201, after knocking off fellow hall of famer Tish Johnson of Colorado Springs, Colo., 224-198, in the opening match.
"I really wasn't thinking about having to win all those matches," Duggan said. "There was no use in getting myself all worked up, so I just took it one shot at a time. I made a lot of really good shots and a lot of bad shots, but fortunately they didn't cost me."
Duggan took home $2,400 for the title along with the Senior Queens tiara, trophy and pendant.
