Wantagh, NY: Adam DeRossi, an IT Director for Massapequa Schools, won the $1,000 top prize at LIGBT’s sport shot event hosted by AMF Wantagh. Adam, who is from Massapequa Park, NY, won his 2nd LIGBT title by defeating Darcy Monroe, E. Meadow, NY 253-234 in the final shootout. While Darcy earned $550 for second, finishing third was Stella Yoo, New York, NY with a 225 earning $350. Rounding out the top 4 was 7-time champion Dexter Sapp, Valley Stream, NY, with a 208 worth $300.
The final shootout featured 4 bowlers who were fairly close in handicap. The match started slowly as everyone had an open by frame #6. Darcy, after 2 opens, had the first triple of the match but needed another double to pressure Adam. Adam, who missed a 1 pin spare in frame #2, stayed clean the rest of the way and doubled twice including the 10th frame to secure the victory. Stella, who was making her first “TV” appearance, bowled great but missed two 10 pins and had to settle for third place. Dexter, the only lefty in the shootout, could not strike and finished in 4th place.
The AMF Wantagh event drew a nice summer crowd of 100 entries, advanced 18 bowlers to the finals and paid out $4,260. The cut scores on the “2010 USBC Championships” pattern were on the low side. The lower average division cut was 691 & 693 and the higher average division cut was 683 & 651. High series of the tournament was shot by Rob Foerster, E. Meadow, NY with a 741 in the 3pm squad. Two extra bowlers were added to the finals due to the “no division” insurance.
