    Lovvang Bowling Center in Aalborg, Denmark (May 26-30, 2002)

    2002WRMSquad3ClaraGuerrero.jpg First round leader Clara Juliana Guerrero of Colombia scored the field-best 1727, eight-game series in the third round of the World Ranking Masters to win her second "High Block Award" worth $1,000.

    2002WRMTanyaPetty2.jpg In the 24th and final game of the day, the 20-year-old right-hander overtook Tanya Petty (right), Germany to regain the lead with pinfall total of 5038, an average of 209,92.

    Previous leader Petty qualified in second position for the finals with 4999. Third place belonged to defending champion Jesmine Ho, Singapore.

    2002WRMKirstenPenny2.jpg Four-time European champion Kirsten Penny (left) bowled the second-best block to leap three spots into fourth at 4941. Team USA member Diandra Hyman grabbed the fifth spot at 4926, with Denmark's Iben Tchu sixth, 4883.

    2002WRMJenniferTan2.jpg Jennifer Tan (right), Singapore, fired a 252-score in the last game to move up from ninth to seventh at 4859. Tseng Su Feng, Chinese Taipei, took the 8th and final qualifying spot with 4820, an average of 200,83.

    Among those failing to make the cut were the three ranking leaders Bettina Lund (Europe, 12th), Shalin Zulkifli (ASia, 13th) and Michelle Ayala (America, 21st).

    The top 8 will return tomorrow for the best-of-three single-elimination finals.
