Bowling News USA - October 27, 2013 Anne Marie Duggan Leads USBC Senior Queens Presented by Storm Products...
Defending champion and Hall of Famer Anne Marie Duggan of Edmond, Okla., put together a big second round Saturday to move into the qualifying lead at the 2013 United States Bowling Congress Senior Queens presented by Storm Products.
After sitting in third after the first round, Duggan now leads with a 10-game total of 2,311 at the International Training and Research Center.
Fellow Hall of Famer Dana Miller-Mackie of Albuquerque, N.M., is second with 2,293.
Duggan, who defeated Miller-Mackie (right) for the title last year, toppled 1,200 pins (240 average) including games of 236, 297, 225, 216 and 226 to take the lead heading into the final qualifying round on Sunday.
"I was able to throw my Storm BYTE all day and it really reacted great," Duggan said. "Yesterday on the fresh, I used two or three different balls to stay in the same spot, so it was nice to have the same look all day."
Hall of Famer Tish Johnson of Colorado Springs, Colo., sits in third with 2,266 while 2011 Senior Queens champion Paula Vidad of Sun City, Calif., is fourth with 2,264.
All 40 bowlers will return to the ITRC on Sunday at 11 a.m. Eastern for the third and final five-game block of qualifying. After 15 games of qualifying, the top 15 competitors and Duggan will advance to double-elimination match play.
