Two of the greatest to ever throw a bowling ball, Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J. and Carolyn Dorin-Ballard of N. Richland Hills, Texas, took home titles at the Cheetah Championship, the seventh stop on the 2008-09 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour. The final round was telecast live from AMF Thruway Lanes on ESPN.
Bohn III’s 32nd career title came after defeating No. 3 seed Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas 242-198 in the televised championship round.
“I had one ball that worked all week, my Twisted Fury; I had tried to use others, but it was almost impossible to get through the pins,” said Bohn III, who is currently fifth on the list of all-time PBA Tour titlists.
Bohn III was the top seed entering the final round after defeating No. 2 seed Patrick Allen of Wesley Chapel, Fla. in Friday’s final position round 279-237.
“If it’s a stepladder format, I want to be No. 1 every week, that’s the way I like it” said Bohn III, who only had to win one match on Sunday’s telecast to win the championship.
PBA Women’s Series Dorin-Ballard defeated No. 2 seed Stefanie Nation of Arlington, Texas, to take home the Cheetah Championship trophy and her 2nd career PBA Women’s Series title.
“This was a very emotional day for me,” said Dorin-Ballard. “It’s Pearl Harbor Day, and my dad was a P.O.W. in World War II, and I felt like he was looking out for me.”
