    Lucy Sandelin still rolling at Senior U.S. Women's Open

    201112PBAKellyKulick.jpg2011USWOStefanieNation2.jpgKelly Kulick of Union, N.J. (pictured left), continued her dominance at the 2012 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open as she retained the top spot after the third round of qualifying Sunday.

    The two-time U.S. Women's Open champion averaged 245 during her six-game block to finish with an 18-game total of 4,294 (238.5 average). Team USA's Stefanie Nation (right) of Grand Prairie, Texas, is second with 4,224.

    Kulick is feeling at home at the National Bowling Stadium as the field of 201 narrowed to the top 50 competitors for Monday's fourth round. An additional six games will be bowled before the top 16 advance to round-robin match play Monday night.

    "Right now my A game is always in play," said Kulick, who rolled her highest six-game block of the event Sunday with 1,470. "I can play straight when I need to, but as soon as I can get left and throw the ball a little right the lanes open up to me and I feel very comfortable."

    After being in the same position at the 2011 U.S. Women's Open in Euless, Texas, Kulick knows all she can do now is to try and keep herself in contention throughout match play to make the stepladder finals that will be held on four specially-constructed lanes underneath the famed Reno Arch.

    2012EBT04MissyParkin.jpg2011WWCShannonOKeefe.jpg"I had a big lead last year, but it didn't do me any good in the finals," Kulick said. "I'm going to bowl each day, one game at a time and keep myself in contention to make the show. My goal is really just to bowl consistently until I get to that position and try to really come into my own out there."

    Missy Parkin of Lake Forest, Calif. (left), is sitting third with 4,178, Team USA's Shannon O'Keefe (right) is fourth at 4,159 and Lynda Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, rounds out the top five with 4,149.

    Defending U.S. Open champion Leanne Hulsenberg of Roseville, Calif., was in 12th place with 4,023.

    The cut number to make the cashers qualifying round (top 50) was 3,810 (211.67 average), which was a tie between USBC Hall of Famer Wendy Macpherson of Henderson, Nev., and Team USA member Tammy Turner of North Ogden, Utah.

    2011WWCRocioRestrepo.jpg2012EBT04ClaraGuerrero3.jpgEight players out of the top 50 were from the small international contingent participating at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev. Colombian national team members Rocio Restrepo (left) and Clara Guerrero (right), who live in the U.S. were 11th and 25th with 4,031 and 3,950, respectively.

    Japan's Yuka Tsuchiya and Yuko Nakatani were 17th and 45th with 3,986 and 3,831. Australian international and former PWBA star Carol Gianotti of Australia was 27th with 3,945, followed by Indonesian standout Tannya Roumimper, who studies at Wichita State University, in 37th place with 3,856.

    Sol Han and Ho-Jung Kim of South Korea round out the international field in Round 4 in 40th and 46th place with 3,849 and 3,824, respectively.

    After the top 50 bowlers finish their six-game block Monday afternoon, the field with be cut to the top 16 for 16 additional games of round-robin match play, which begins Monday evening.

    The five players who remain at the top of the standings after 40 total games will advance to Wednesday's television finals, which will be broadcast July 3 at 8 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2.

     


    Lucy Sandelin still rolling at Senior U.S. Women's Open


    2009USBCSQLucySandelin.jpg2009USBCWCRobinRomeo.jpgFor the third straight round, Lucy Sandelin (pictured left) of Tampa, Fla., found herself at the top of the leaderboard at the Senior U.S. Women's Open on Sunday. The USBC Hall of Famer paced the field with an 18-game total of 3,939 as the field is cut to the top 15 competitors.

    The 1989 U.S. Women's Open champion, Robin Romeo (right) of Newhall, Calif., and USBC Hall of Famer Jeanne Naccarato of Tacoma, Wash., are second and third with 3,826 and 3,763, respectively.

    The top 15 of 60 players survived the first cut to bowl additional six games on Monday before the top eight players return to take part in round-robin match play to determine who makes the stepladder finals.
