W.R. Williams Jr. wins PBA Senior

Northern California Classic

Professional Bowlers Association

Hall of Famer Walter Ray

Williams Jr. made a bid to

become the favorite for 2012

Hoping to learn how to

properly spin his bowling

ball to strike, Sgt. 1st Class

Senior Player of the Year honors

by winning the PBA Senior

Northern California Classic

presented by Track Wednesday

at Harvest Park Bowl.

Chiedoziem Nwofor visited the

Lanes on Saturday morning.

After a just a few hours, the


Women’s Open

Two-time US Open champ, Kelly Kulick leads

qualifying at press time after 2nd round of US Open.

Complete results and recap of the BPAA US

Women’s Open in next week’s edition. Plus pictures

from the televised finals held on the streets of Reno.

The seven-time PBA Player

of the Year became the first

two-time winner this season

by defeating Hugh Miller of

Seattle, 248-231, in the championship


“A lot of my matches today

were closer than they looked,”

said Williams, who was the

2010 PBA Senior Rookie of

the Year. “It wasn’t all smooth

sailing because I had a couple

of matches that came down to

the 10th frame. But I did what I

had to do to win.”

Williams, who won the

Senior Don Carter Memorial

earlier this season, captured

his fourth career Senior Tour

title to go along with his PBA

Tour career-leading 47 titles.

He also improved on seventh

and 17th-place finishes in his

previous two Senior Northern

California Classic appearances.

The first game I bowled

in match play I shot 194 and

missed the pocket one time

so I had to go to another ball

to get a better reaction on the

backend,” said Williams, who

won a total of four matches

Wednesday. “I had one open

and don’t think I missed the

title defense


after winning Bowling’s U.S.

Women’s Open in front of a

world-record crowd at one

of the most unique venues

in bowling history, Leanne

Hulsenberg of Roseville, Calif.,

is ready to take on this year’s

unique challenge - the outdoor


Hulsenberg, who last year

defeated Kelly Kulick, 218-183,

on specially constructed lanes

at the 50-yard-line of Cowboys

Stadium, will headline a field

of more than 200 of the top

female bowlers in the world

competing in the 2012 U.S.

Women’s Open at the National

Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev.,

starting last Friday.

The finals of the event will

be taped for broadcast on lanes

constructed outside on Virginia

Street in downtown Reno under

the famous Reno Arch. It’s the

first time a women’s bowling

event in the United States will

be conducted outside.

“I got acclimated to Cowboys

Stadium quickly, and it

didn’t feel so ominous though

it was such a big place,” said

Hulsenberg, whose win last

year was before a crowd of

8,017 fans - a bowling attendance

record. “I was surprised

I felt comfortable there. We

were there all morning, and

that helped. But being outside

will be totally different, I don’t

even picture it yet. For anyone

who makes it to the finals, it’s

going to be different.”

Another thing Hulsenberg is

looking forward to in her title

defense is the

proximity of the event to

her home. Roseville, where the

Team USA member calls home,

is only about a two-hour drive

from Reno.

“I get excited to bowl any

tournament, and to be defending

champion is pretty cool,”

said Hulsenberg, a 28-time

professional champion. “The

best part is that it is two hours

from my home. My family is

coming, a lot of friends and a

lot of the juniors that I coach.

Hopefully, I can make them

By Leisha Murr

This week I’ve been busy

making all of my flight and

hotel reservations for the Scentsy

convention I will be attending

at the end of next month. I’ve

been trying to get organized and

make sure I have everything

taken care of because I have a

busy couple of weeks coming

up and don’t want to have to

worry about anything. We bowl

women’s state tournament this

weekend and then on Tuesday

I leave for Reno to bowl the

Women’s Championships.

I like bowling tournaments

towards the end of the event

because you know going in what

the scores are like and what

you’ll need to shoot to take over

the lead. We are bowling the last

weekend for state, and I think

nationals has less than two

weeks left after we bowl. This

week, most of the women in the

Diamond and scratch division

are bowling because they are in

Reno for the Women’s US Open

which started today and ends on

Wednesday. You can watch live

on bowl.com this week and the

outdoor finals under the Reno

arch will air July 3rd on ESPN.

So after all of the ladies I call

the “Superstars” bowl this week

in Reno, we should know who

is going to win in the scratch

standings for sure and most

likely the Diamond division

as well. There is still a chance

someone or team (hopefully

from our group) could take the

lead in the Diamond division

because it includes 100%

handicap of 220 per person. It

would be amazing to come out

on top at the biggest women’s

event we have.

After I bowl in Reno, I’m

going to stop off in Vegas for a

few days before I come home.

You’d think I could get my

gambling fix in the time I’m in

Reno, but I really just don’t like

it there. I haven’t found a casino

I enjoy gambling in or even

pit bosses that were friendly.

Plus, the hotels on the strip in

Vegas are so much nicer than

anything you can find in Reno.

I’m excited to get to stay in one

of the hotels on the strip that I

haven’t been in before this trip.

There are so many great choices.

I’ve stayed at Treasure Island,

Caesars, Bally’s, Bellagio, Palms,

Mandalay Bay, Luxor, and

unfortunately the Excalibur. On

day I hope I can say I’ve stayed

in them all!

I typically don’t get to stay on

the strip when I’m in Las Vegas

because we are usually there for

a bowling tournament and stay

at the host casino. The ones I

have stayed at are the Orleans,

Gold Coast, South Point, Sam’s

Town, Texas Station, and Sunset

Station. All of the bowling centers

in Vegas are inside casinos

off the strip. There is even a

Lucky Strikes inside the Rio.

Can you imagine having to drag

bowling balls through a casino

each week to get to league to

bowl? I’m sure bowling league

each week ends up costing the

bowlers more than just the

league fees depending on how

many slot machines are between

the lanes and the car.

Anyway, I guess I gambled

more than normal on my last

bowling trip because I got a

call from a casino host this

afternoon wanting to offer me a

room and some food credits to

come back. So, staying off of the

strip does have its advantages;

you don’t have to be a highroller

to get comps at the smaller


Last week I mentioned I had

started reading the Shades of

Grey series. Well, I’m now half

way finished with the third and

final book. The books probably

need to be an NC-17 rating, not

just R. It has definitely been an

education into, we will say, an

alternative lifestyle of intimate

relations. But as the books go

on, you begin to understand and

feel for the controlling man and

why he is the way he is. There

is some great banter between

the couple and I can’t wait to

see how it all ends. Warning:

These books are definitely NOT

for the modest reader, you might

be shocked or even appalled that

I’ve enjoyed reading them.

PBA Spare






Mike Edwards’ 701-691

victory over Hugh Miller to

lock up his first PBA Senior

Tour title – and first major – in

the USBC Senior Masters on

June 15 at South Point Bowling

Center in Las Vegas threw both

the PBA Senior Tour Player of

the Year and Rookie of the Year

races into a tizzy heading into

the final three events of the

2012 season.

Edwards, who turned 50

in December, ran the table in

the Senior Masters, posting a

7-0 record in the three-game,

double-elimination match play

event in becoming the first

Native American to win a PBA

Senior Tour title. The victory

came a week after Edwards

finished third in the Etonic

PBA Senior U.S. Open in his

debut as a senior player, and

18 years after winning his only

PBA Tour title in the 1994 PBA

IOF Bowling for Miracles Open

in Toronto, Ontario.

The win also earned

Edwards 24 points in the PBA

Senior Player of the Year race.

Combined with the eight points

he earned for his third-place

finish in the Senior U.S. Open,

he now has 32 points and he’s

tied for No. 1 on that list with

PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray

Williams Jr. and fellow Senior

Tour “rookie” Amleto Monacelli,

who mirrored Edwards’

finishes in the season’s two

senior majors: Monacelli won

the Senior U.S. Open and

finished third in the Senior

Masters for his 32 points.

Trailing Williams, Monacelli

and Edwards in the POY points

chase are rookies Bob Learn Jr.

(18 points) and Lennie Boresch

Jr. (16), PBA Hall of Famer

Johnny Petraglia (16), and Ron

Profitt and Miller (12 each).

Petraglia is currently sidelined,

recovering from shoulder


For the final three Senior

Tour tournaments (Brentwood,

Calif., June 17-20; Hammond,

Ind., Aug. 6-9, and Decatur, Ill.,

Aug. 11-14), 16 Player of the

Year points will be awarded to

the winners, eight points for

second place, four for third and

two for fourth.

Senior Tour Rookie of the

Year will be elected by PBA

members and the bowling

media. In addition to Edwards

and Monacelli, Boresch and

Learn are also first-year title

Junior Gold sets tournament,

membership records

ARLINGTON —- A record

number of youth bowlers will

take part in the North Pointe

Junior Gold Championships

next month in Indianapolis,

and the United States Bowling

Congress Junior Gold program

already has established a

membership record for the

2011-12 season.

The 2012 North Pointe

Junior Gold Championships

presented by Brunswick has

sold 2,088 spots, shattering the

previous record of 1,980 set in

2009, also in Indianapolis. It is

a 14-percent increase over last

year’s mark of 1,821 entries.

The USBC Junior Gold

program has more than 4,000

members for the first time in

the program’s 15-year history,

a 12-percent increase over last

season’s total, also a record.

The North Pointe Junior

Gold Championships was created

by combining the Bowling

Proprietors’ of America North

Pointe High School Championships

and the USBC Junior

Gold Championships into one

national singles championship

event with four divisions - U20

boys, U20 girls, U15 boys, U15


Chad Murphy, International

Bowling Campus Managing

Director of Youth Development,

said while the change

was dramatic, it allowed for a

scholarship pool of $250,000

and opened the field to more

youth bowlers. More than 300

participants for this year’s

North Pointe Junior Gold

Championships qualified in the

new U15 division.

The folks who were passionate

about both events have

Lane Laughter

supported this new event in

an unbelievable way,” Murphy

said. “Our goal is to create

lifelong bowlers and, because

of their support, a larger group

of kids will benefit. In Indianapolis

this summer, we’ll get

to celebrate this success when

we crown four champions and

build the foundation for Junior

Team USA. It has been exciting

and fun to see it all come


This season, 507 centers

held 836 qualifiers, up from the

337 centers that held qualifiers

last season. Murphy said the

support of tournament coordinators

throughout the country

also was a key factor to the

record-setting numbers.

Their dedication and belief

in what we are doing, along

with the work of the IBC Youth

Development team and the

support of North Pointe Insurance

and Brunswick, has only

strengthened the Junior Gold

program,” Murphy said. The

first Junior Gold tournament,

then called the USA Junior

Gold National Bowling Championships,

was held in 1998 at

the National Bowling Stadium

in Reno, Nev., and drew 538


The 2012 North Pointe

Junior Gold Championships

will be held July 14-20 at

Woodland Bowl, Western Bowl

and Expo Bowl in Indianapolis.

In addition to the $250,000

scholarship pool, participants

also will be vying for spots on

Junior Team USA.

Tuesday at the Lanes.

said. “It’s been done with golf,

but never with bowling.”

“I know after talking to

everyone who participated this

was a very moving experience,

and one that I believe nobody

will forget,” said Noordhoek.

While the company

participates in many charity

events, Storm’s Vice President

of Operations Corbet Austin

said the company jumped

at the opportunity to work

with the wounded warriors.

Coaches traveled from all over

the country, including Utah,

Georgia, Illinois and Florida, to


“We want to help, we want

to give back,” Austin said. “You

don’t get to share your appreciation

enough with the military,

I think. ... Just talking to some

of them and some of the stories

they have, it’s like ‘Wow. You

guys have been through some

really tough things.’

“And here they are, they

have a smile on their face.

They’re dedicated, and they

serve our country to keep us

safe. If we can give back a little

bit just to show them a tiny bit

of appreciation, which is not

much compared to what they

have to go through, hey, we’re


The event staff featured

Oh to be a teenager again!

My daughter recently turned 14

(I know I can’t believe it either)

and it’s really funny to see the

evolution of a child turning

into an adult.

The other day she had a

couple of friends spend the

night and they stayed up till

2 am singing karaoke. Consequently

I stayed up till 2 AM

tossing and turning until they

finished singing karaoke, but

I digress. The next day I came

walking through the kitchen

and they are calmly sitting

around the breakfast table

drinking glasses of Orange


I literally had to do a double

take because it looked like

three adults sitting there drinking

coffee in the morning and

discussing current events or

the day’s activities. The comical

part of the situation was

that it was 3 PM and they had

just woken up, so it really was

like their morning cup of soda.

Oh to be a teenager again!

There are a lot of really

good uses for Facebook these

days. From communicating a

bowling tournament to simply

keeping up with long lost

friends and relatives, Facebook

has become so popular that

you can reach a large amount

of people about anything.

What Facebook is not good

for is counseling. It seems

every day I read a post about

someone’s personal troubles

about their life, job, or something

else that not all 500

people who you are friends

with need to know about. I

know it may be therapeutic at

the time to voice your pain,

but before you post something

think about what you would

think if someone else wrote

it. After all Facebook isn’t The

Jerry Springer Show.

Obviously I’m being slightly

hypocritical because I basically

do the same thing in this

article in The Bowling News

every week, but at least I get

paid for it!

Normally when a sporting

season comes to an end and

a champion is crowned I will

watch the conclusion and celebration

of the team’s victory

even if I don’t care for them.

Watching the New York

Giants celebrate is painful for a

Cowboy fan, but you can still

get some good feelings from

watching it. However, I did not

feel this way about the Miami

Heat winning the NBA Championship

last week.

I’m sure a small part of it

was that they beat my second

favorite team, but it was more

about not wanting to see

everything that’s wrong with

professional sports (the Miami

Heat) become successful, and

potentially become the model

of how to win a title.

Unfortunately I think the

Dallas Mavericks are looking at

it the same way and are trying

to build themselves up with

a couple of huge free agent

signings so they can have their

big three.

I miss the days of drafting a

player and knowing that player

will be on a team for the next

ten years. Now they sign a

three year deal and if it’s not a

good location they are simply

serving time in that city until

they can become a free agent

and move. The players take the

blame for their lack of loyalty,

but being a Pittsburgh Pirate or

Milwaukee Buck is not going

to get you on Sports Center

and into the public eye, which

ultimately lands you money.

It’s funny how it always seems

to come back to money!

Now that the NBA Season is

over I thought I would briefly

review the red hot Dacetronamous’

picks for the 2011-12

Paul Henderson’s first-rate

258-255-247 = 760 Fast Lane Trio

session ended as the number-one

set of the week at Forum Bowl.

Diana Jessie, Henderson’s

league mate, fronted distaff

scoring with an outstanding

183-224-299 = 706 set. She then

finished her 4 game set with a

nice 952 series.


Robair Ross (9 pin) 278-811, Dottie

Robbins (9 pin) 266-701, Duane Bates

(4 games, no tap) 300-1095, Jeanette

Manzano (4 games, no tap) 267-967,

Clifton Carrington 206-582, Annie

NBA Season.

Out of five things that

Dacestronamous thought would

happen forty percent came

true. I picked that Dwight

Howard would stay with the

Orlando Magic (and regret

every second of it). I am not

sure about the second part, but

the first part was true.

I also picked the LA Clippers

to make the playoffs and win

a game. They even went on

and won a series before getting

swept by San Antonio in the

second round. I am going to

take a half credit for picking

the OKC Thunder to win the

NBA Finals over the Chicago

Bulls. The Thunder at least got

to the finals, but Derrick Rose’s

injury basically gave the Heat a

cakewalk to the finals.

Where I missed the biggest

was I thought that San Antonio

would be terrible and forced

to rebuild, however they went

the opposite direction and were

the best team in basketball and

went deep into the playoffs.

Finally I predicted that after

not winning for a second year

in a row that the Heat would

trade Chris Bosh and blow

up the “Big Three”, but since

they won I don’t think that is

going to happen now. I would

call that fifty percent correct

in predictions. Now if I can

consistently pick sixty percent

winners I’m moving to Vegas!
