I’ve had many discussions,

or arguments, over the many

yeas about which sport has

the best athletes.

Bowling, of course, has

some excellent all-around

athletes, but has to take a

back-seat when compared to

some of the other sports.

Baseball is right there near

the top. You have to consider

how terrific the players’

timing is when hitting and

fielding. The pitches come

like bullets and they have

to catch up with them with

those small bats.

Football requires a lot of

talent, and muscle, but allaround

they are not and some

of them never could be.

Auto racing? I really don’t

compare it to other sports

because too much depend on

the cars.

Golfers are getting better

and better. Partly because of

the equipment getting better.

But all-around athletes they

are not.

Tennis players are very

talented, but too many are too

small for other sports.

Swimming requires a lot

of muscle and endurance. You

can find weaknesses in most


The toughest sport of them

all, I feel, is ice hockey.

But my vote for the top allaround

athletes would have to

go to pro basketball players.

Most of them look like

they would make good tight

ends. They can catch the ball

and throw it, too.

And they have to stay in

tremendous condition.

and photos you will enjoy.

James Rougley

This week’s high man

is James Rougley with a

289-277-276 for an 842 series

at AMF Richardson. James

frequently participates in NABI

tournaments and is a five-time

champion. His two sons are

also very good bowlers as well

as his wife.

What is your high series?

858. I shot that in a tournament.

I have bowled five 800’s.

How many 300’s have you

bowled? Maybe 30.

What ball did you throw?

Columbia Freeze. I have always

had success with the Columbia

balls. My daughter got me that

ball for Christmas this year.

Who drills your balls? Tom

Wicker for the last nine years.

What is your all-time

favorite bowling ball? A Columbia

Sport ball, but I don’t know

if anyone else liked that ball.

I saw Wendy Macpherson use

that ball on TV so I thought I

would give it a try and I ended

up bowling six 300’s with it.

What is your average in the

XXXX Rated league? 216.

What is your all-time high

average? 229 at USA Bowl.

How long have you been

bowling? I started bowling in

1985 and bowled all them time

until 1995. I then took some

time off because I was coaching

Pop Warner football and

that consumed all of my time.

I started back in 2000 and

haven’t stopped since. I have

always watched bowling on TV

but had never actually bowled.

It looked like a lot of fun, so I

started messing around with it

and then joined a league and

here I am now.

What part of the lane were

you playing when you shot this

series? I was playing straight

up 10. Normally I will play in

further but that night I decided

I would play straighter to see

how long it would last and

fortunately my line held up all


Who is your favorite pro

bowler? Without a doubt it’s

Walter Ray. I saw him holding

up a $25,000 check and it

looked like a fun way to make

money. Of course I have never

won events like that but I still

enjoy it.

Most memorable bowling

moment? I won a NABI tournament

in Euless were I averaged

about 257. It was a really good


How much do you practice?

Lately I will get a few warm-up

games on Thursday, but that’s

about it. My wife bowls too

and we used to practice all the

time, but just don’t have the

time now.

Do you have anyone who

coach’s you? Never had a coach.

I just practiced a lot, worked

Texans shoot big scores last

weekend at Storm Bowlers

Journal Championships

RENO, NV — For 64 years,

the Storm Bowlers Journal

Championships, presented by

USBC, has complimented the

United States Bowling Congress

Open Championships as the

ultimate warm-up for bowlers

before they compete under

the bright lights and custom

scoreboards of the main event.

Bryan O’Keefe of Arlington,

stopped at the Bowlers Journal

Championships for a tuneup

last week and rolled the

highest individual set on the

tournament lanes since the

event changed to a four-game

format in 2006.

O’Keefe posted games of

275, 286, 258 and 235 for a

1,054 total and teamed up with

Chris Viale of Westfield, MS,

to move into second place in

Open Doubles with a 1,932 total.

Viale contributed 213, 289,

189 and 187 for an 878 set. Erik

Vermilyea of Mansfield, and

Anthony LaCaze of Melrose

Park, IL, lead with 1,972.

Chad Maas of Brookfield,

record with 1,045, which

he shot on the way to the

Classic Singles title in 2008.

Unfortunately for O’Keefe,

he will not be celebrating

singles glory of his own after

neglecting to take advantage of

the tournament’s Dual Entry

feature, which allows bowlers

to count their four-game totals

(Based on 30 entries)

for doubles and singles at the

same time.

“I honestly just forgot

about it,” said O’Keefe, who

shared the 1996 Classic Singles

title with Lumber Liquidators

Professional Bowlers Association

champion Robert Smith.

“After I got done bowling my

first doubles set, I just paid

my entry for the next set and

didn’t think about it. I have

won the event before, and to

win it twice would have been

awesome. Unfortunately, there

is nothing I can do about it


In their second game,

O’Keefe and Viale both tossed

10 consecutive strikes and

combined to shoot 575.

Not to be outdone, O’Keefe’s

wife, Team USA member Shannon

O’Keefe, struck 11 times

on the way to a 295 game.

“Chris and I both started

with a spare in the first frame,”

said O’Keefe, who made his

first Bowlers Journal Championships

appearance in 1994.

“We got to the last ball of the

10th frame and I left a 2-4-8-10,

while Chris left a 10 pin. My

wife, Shannon, started with the

first 11 strikes, but the last ball

was a little wide, and she left a

washout for 295.”

O’Keefe’s experience and

knowledge as a USBC Coaching

Specialist helped him realize

lanes and what he needed to do

to succeed.

“During practice, I saw

there was a little more hook,

so I made a move left,” said

O’Keefe, who finished third in

Regular Doubles at the 2009

USBC Open Championships.

“During the second game, we

went back to the pair that I

started on in my previous set,

and I knew that one lane was

tighter. Then, I shot 286, and

it just went on from there.

The lanes were playable, and

it helped that the three other

people on my pair were playing

in the same area. It is cool to

know that is the highest fourgame

set ever.”

O’Keefe, who entered the

2010 Open Championships with

a career average of 213 through

16 years, shot 638 in singles,

600 in team and 547 in doubles

for a 1,785 all-events total.

Shannon O’Keefe rounded out

her second tournament appearance

with 710 in team, 623 in

doubles and 604 in singles for

1,937. Their team, Cambridge 1

of Feeding Hills, MS, is seventh

in Regular Team with 3,217.

Bowlers Edge Pro Shop of

Neenah, WI, leads with 3,408.

Mike Tryniski of Fulton, NY,

also found success at the Bowlers

Journal this weekend as he

posted the second perfect game

of this year’s event. LaCaze

rolled the other.

The accomplished righthander

already owns a 300

game and 800 series at the

Bowlers Journal, and his efforts

this weekend helped him into

eighth place in Classic Singles

with 890 (194, 300, 214, 183).

Jeffrey Mersch of Orlando, FL,

leads with 970.

“It felt good,” Tryniski said.

“After the first game, I moved

a little left and was able to

roll the ball a little bit more. I

also was able to hook the ball

a little more, and I ended up

shooting 300.”

Each year, Tryniski, 49,

looks at the Bowlers Journal

Championships as an


“It’s another opportunity

to compete,” said Tryniski,

who owns Lakeview Lanes

in Fulton, NY. “Usually, the

shot is different, and it’s a

way for bowlers to get loose.

Our group has had some past

winners, and we look forward

to bowling with each other

with another chance to make


Two of those past winners

are Joe Petrowski of East Syracuse,

NY, and Art Alexander

III of Baldwinsville, NY, who

won Open Doubles in 2006.

Petrowski also looks forward to

the Bowlers Journal every year.

“I like how all 10 guys can

be involved,” Petrowski said.

“We all bowl with each other

for doubles, and it gives everyone

an opportunity to compete

and cash with each other.”

Tryniski also has a track

record of success at the Open

Championships with a 300

game at the 1993 event in

Tulsa, OK, and Regular Doubles

and Team All-Events titles

a year later in Mobile, AL.

He and his Lakeview Lanes

teammates made a run at

the Regular Team lead at the

National Bowling Stadium on

Sunday night.

The group put together

games of 1,024, 1,213 and

1,076, but fell short and settled

into second place with 3,313.

Petrowski led the way with

a 726 series and was followed

by Alexander (690), Tryniski

(657), Dean Distin (626) and

Ray Cyr Jr. (614).

Their companion team, Ray

Cyr’s Pro Shop of Baldwinsville,

NY, also bowled well

and moved into fifth place in

Regular Team with 3,248.

Joe Conti Jr. of Liverpool,

NY, the Open Singles champion

at last year’s Bowlers Journal

event, led the way for Ray Cyr’s

Pro Shop on Sunday with a

697 series and was followed by

Larry Porter (660), Matt Chetney

Last Sunday was the first

annual America’s Run 5k at

the new Cowboy’s Stadium in


It was fitting that this event

took place at the same time

that the old Texas Stadium was


For those who didn’t know,

I committed to running this

because my wife loves to run.

She also sits and watches my

bowling all the time, so I felt

it was time for me to give

something back.

The week leading up to the

race, I went to the gym twice

and ran 1.6 miles the first time

and then two miles the second


As Sunday rolled around we

met our running partners April

Ellis and Brett Cooper and we

proceeded to the starting line.

While listening to the

introductions they announced

that Troy Aikman was running

the half marathon that had just

started 30 minutes earlier. I am

now starting to sense how big

of a deal this was.

From left, Brett Cooper, April Ellis, Nikki and Clint Dacy.

I start getting amped up and

at 8 a.m. we started the race

and I was to the starting line

at about 8:02 a.m. My plan all

along was to run a mile, walk

a mile, and then run the rest of

the way into the stadium.

However, after the first mile

my adrenaline started to kick

in and I noticed that very few

people were passing Nikki and

I, and we are running past a lot

of people.

We made it to the half way

point without stopping and

suddenly my competitiveness

kicked in. It seemed that every

person running in front of me

quickly grew a target on their

back and I had to pass them.

The next thing I knew we

could see the stadium opening

and I knew I was getting close.

As we turned down the

tunnel to the field I suddenly

became weightless. Nikki said

she has never seen me smile

so big as I did when I saw that

football field.

As we ran onto the field I

had to do a tiptoe down the

back of the end zone like Jason

Witten on a wheel route.

Then I turned my focus

to the finish line. I couldn’t

help myself, as all the people

seemed to be slowing down so

I began high-stepping all the

way from the end zone to the

finish line at the 50 yard line.

By popular demand I finished

the race with my Deion

Sanders touchdown dance. As

Nikki and I finished and we

made our way to the holding

area we found Brett and April.

They ran the race in 34 minutes

and Nikki and I completed

it in 38 minutes.

This is by far one of my

most memorable sporting

events ever because I thought

there would be no way I could

run the whole thing without


We polished off all of the

festivities at IHOP with a

big helping of pancakes and


As a follow up, although I

announced my retirement from

running shortly after the race

(like five steps after), Nikki

was already researching the

I don’t know about you, but

I really enjoyed the Masters

Golf tournament this year. Like

most people I was sucked into

the Tiger Wood’s fiasco, but the

golf was just sensational.

Mickelson was fantastic and

there were so many players

in contention that there were

plenty of great golf shots to

be seen. Normally when it’s

a two-man race the cameras

stay on those two throughout

all of their practice swings and

pre-shot routines.

In the final round though,

they cut from shot to shot and

kept me entertained the whole


Maybe bowling should take

that into consideration. If they

try and remove some of the

pre-shot routines and focus on

the action parts of the game,

maybe that will make for a

more interesting show.

League in Arlington Heights,

IL, won a national competition

among thousands of USBC PBA

Experience League bowlers for

the right to bowl against the

PBA stars.

The made-for-television

event required all six players

to bowl a single frame on each

of the five “animal patterns”

and then repeat that process to

complete a 10-frame game. After

one full round, the field was

trimmed to the two highest

scores for a five-frame championship

game, also across all

five patterns. In sequence, players

bowled one frame each on

the Shark, Chameleon, Viper,

Scorpion and Cheetah patterns.

Reuer started the qualify-

Bowlers practice before the show.

ing round with a 173. Duke

followed with a 213. Page,

bowling third, looked like he

was in immediate trouble,

leaving the 3-6-7-10 on his

first shot on the Shark lane.

He converted that spare, but

he missed a 2-7 left-side “baby

split” in the second frame on

the Chameleon lane. Page then

rallied to salvage a 223, putting

together a string of four strikes

in his second five-frame round.

O’Neill followed Page and he

was untouchable. After a spare

in his opening frame, O’Neill

threw six consecutive strikes

and then struck out in the 10th

frame on the Cheetah pattern

for a 258 game.

That meant Jurek or DeVaney

needed to top Page’s 223

to remain in title contention.

Jurek finished with a 197 and

DeVaney, who started with

four strikes, left a “big four”

split on his second trip to the

Chameleon lane to stall his bid.

Needing a strike on his first

shot in the 10th frame to knock

out Page, DeVaney left a 6 pin

and finished with a 217.

In the finale, O’Neill again

jumped into the lead with a

double, but the “washout” in

the fourth frame proved to be

the difference as Page alter-

nated spares and strikes for his

four-pin victory.

“I got pretty fortunate that

Bill made a bad shot and I was

able to capitalize. It was kind

of a lucky draw the way the

lanes were set up because I

struggled the whole show with

the Shark,” Page said. “If you’re

going to miss, the first frame

is the time to do it. Bill was so

locked in.

“It was really a challenge

changing angles on every

lane,” he added. “I was lucky

to throw that four-bagger in

the first round just to give

myself a chance, and even then

I was able to dodge a couple

of bullets from Duke and

DeVaney. For both of them to

miss strikes in the 10th on the

Cheetah? That’s a lot of good

things going my way.”

For his victory, Page collected

a $25,000 first prize.

“That was great and the timing

was perfect,” he grinned. “I

can put a little money into my

new home and also have some

money to pay my taxes.”

to succeed on the lanes. In fact, the world’s best bowlers come in all

shapes and sizes – short, tall, heavy, thin. Bowling technique is all

about leverage and timing, so your physical size and strength does not

matter as much as in sports like football or basketball.

get involved with a cool sport that anyone can play and one that helps

build their future, give bowling a try! Join USBC Youth bowling today!

Lynda Barnes

This week’s high woman is

Lynda Barnes with a 278-300-

227 for an 805 series at AMF

Lewisville Lanes.

As everyone knows, Lynda

is the wife of PBA professional

bowler Chris Barnes and the

mother of twins Ryan and Troy

who will be eight-years-old in


While both boys have

followed in their parents

footsteps with bowling, they

are involved in every kind of

“ball” sport.

Lynda is also hosting and

running the Strike Out Diabetes

Charity Bowling Event,

Saturday, May 22 at AMF

Lewisville Lanes.

What is your high series? An

806. I shot it while on tour in

Omaha, NE. I made the show

and finished second.

How many 300’s and 800’s

have you bowled? I have

20-some 300s, two 800s and a

billion 790s.

What ball did you throw?

A Columbia Pure Swing. It’s a

great ball.

Who drills your balls? Chris

is drilling them right now.

What is your all-time

favorite bowling ball? Right

now it’s the Pure Swing. But I

would say the Blue Hammer or

Black U-Dot.

What is your average in the

Monday Nite Mixers league? It

was 232 before the 800. I don’t

have a lot of games in since we

are gone a lot.

What is your all-time high

average? Probably the 232. I

really don’t know.

How long have you been

bowling? I started when I was

four. My mom was the junior

director and she told me when

I could hold it with one hand I

could bowl.

What part of the lane were

you playing when you shot this

series? I was playing about 17

to 8 at the break point.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? I have to say Chris

because of his versatility. He

never boxes himself in. I also

like Doug Kent, Kim Terrell

because she is so smooth and

calm. Carolyn Dorin-Ballard

because of her fire and Donna

Adamek. She was so small but

she had such power.

Most memorable bowling

moment? Winning the Queens

the second time. It was an

affirmation that I could still

compete. And, hearing the

National Anthem the first time

as a Team USA member. That is

a feeling you can’t explain.

How much do you practice?

When there are tournaments,

every day. When there aren’t

any tournaments, then weekly.

I’ve been injured with a bad

back. So, I’ve in been in physical

therapy for two months.

This was only my third week

back to bowling.

Do you have anyone who

coach’s you? Mark Baker. A lot

of times he talks me through

things on the phone. He saved

Cagle, Williams lead scoring

at AMF Irving Lanes

Donnie Cagle and Valerie Williams

led scoring for the week at

AMF Irving.

Cagle rolled games of 160-181-

246 for a 587 That’s Incredible

series, while Williams paced the

ladies with 165-181-194 = 540

Bowlettes lines.


Don Banfield 212-560, Roberta

my career after the National

Championship. I owe him a lot.

Other bowling thoughts on

your big night? This is such a

fun, crazy league. They are

all so supportive. It was fun to

share this with them.

What are your immediate

bowling plans? I plan to bowl

the Queens and the U.S. Open.

Then I will evaluate what I will

be doing.

Lynda’s tip of the week: Practice

as much as you can and

have fun while you do it. Also,

respect the sport.

Richie Rylant

We were unable to reach

Richie for his interview

because he was bowling a PBA

Regional this weekend.

Richie also posted an 842

series on games of 268-279-295

in the Classic Trio league at

Rowlett Bowl-a-Rama. We hope

to have his interview next
