    National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev. (April 25-29, 2009)

    2009DHCKellyKulick.jpgKelly Kulick (pictured) of Union, N.J., earned the top seed for match play Monday by being the high qualifier after 15 games at the 2009 United States Bowling Congress Queens.

    Kulick led the field by more than 100 pins, finishing with 3,472, an average of better than 231 per game. Kendra Gaines of Orlando, Fla., is second with 3,369, while Michelle Feldman of Auburn, N.Y., sits in third with 3,357.

    "I learned a lot today during the final qualifying block and threw some balls that gave me a better look," Kulick said. "Now I just have to focus on bowling the pins and not worry about who I am bowling in match play."

    Kulick, the 2007 Queens champion, had games of 238, 233, 192, 211 and 231 for a final qualifying block of 1,105 at the National Bowling Stadium.

    The top 63 bowlers advanced to double-elimination match play, which gets underway today at 1 p.m. Pacific. Melissa Klug of Macomb, Mich., earned the final spot in match play with a total of 3,052.

    Defending champion Lynda Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, who has paced with the field for all 15 games, will now join the competition and will be seeded 32nd in the bracket.

    Match play will continue through Tuesday and the final five players will advance to the televised stepladder finals at the Reno Events Center, which will be broadcast live on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.
