Germany Take Short

October 27th, 2010  |  Published in Breaking News

Competition got underway Wednesday morning with the girls playing an eight-game block on the short oil pattern, lanes

conditioned to 35 feet.

This did not seem to deter this distaff field from psoting some great scores and the field was handsomely led by Germany’s Nadine Geisler, 23, from Kaiserslautern, maybe better known as K-Town to the thousands of american serviceman who served on the bases in the area.

Geisler, new to the German national team, but already a star after finishing eleventh in the recent Vienna Open which was dominated by American PBA players, hit a 221.50 average on this testing condition to post 1772 to lead the field in the first of three blocks before the cut to the top eight on Friday evening.

Coach and WBW Hall of Famer Martina Beckel was overjoyed at her rookie’s opening performance. “Geisler is tall and strong and will definitely be a great asset to the German national team,” she said.

A great revoery came from defending champion Kirsten Penny from England. Way off the mark with opening games of 168 and 127 she made a quick line change to come back with six good games, including a 280, to place second to Geisler on 1683.

The girls will bowl their second eight-game block on the long oil pattern tomorrow morning, but now the men take over the 24 Roll House lanes for their short oil stint.
