Wagners Roll in Mixed Doubles


Ruble, Leonard A., Jr., The Florida Times Union


Lisa and Kent Wagner took the second annual LPBT Beach Bowl

Mixed Doubles Tournament over Dede Davidson and Doug Becker last

weekend. The win was the fifth Mixed Doubles title for the

Wagner duo.

This win adds to a long list of accolades for Lisa Wagner

including LPBT rookie of the year in 1980, LPBT bowler of the

year in '83, '86, '88 and '93 and bowler of the decade for the

1980s. She is also the reigning 1996 WIBC queens champion.

In addition, the right-hander has 30 national pro titles and two

regional titles to her credit. She was selected for the LPBT

hall of fame this year. She also is in the Florida Sports Hall

of Fame in Lake City.

The Wagner duo led the tournament after 10 games of qualifying

on Saturday with plus-632 pins. Davidson and Becker took over

the lead after the first six games of match play on Sunday,

jumping from sixth place with plus 1,183 pins to lead by 237

pins. Their lead dwindled to 50 after 12 games of match play as

Davidson suffered blisters on her fingers.

In the stepladder finals, the first match saw Carolyn Trump and

Chuck Rucker defeat Corrine Ham and Ryan Boyd. Trump and Rucker

then took on Krissy Stewart and Ted Thompson and took that match

by 35 pins.

Trump and Rucker ran out of steam as they took on the Wagners.

The Wagners walked away with an 86-pin win to set up the final

match against Davidson and Becker. The blisters on Davidson's

fingers took their toll in the final as they affected the amount

of lift she could get on the ball. The Wagners won by 77 pins.

Among local bowlers in the field, Ernie Sallas finished in

seventh place with partner Ruth Atkinson; Leslie Blanford and

Ted Harris placed 18th; Rhonda Crews and Gabby DaClouche, 19th;

Barbara Batt and Andy Brown, 22nd; and Debbie Rudd and Jeff

Reese, 24th.

The pros took to the lanes on Friday night in a pro-am, to the

delight of local bowlers. Eileen Coburn, who bowls at Beach

Bowl, came away with the pro-am championship with an eight-pin

victory over David Smith, who bowls at Cassat Lanes. Ironically,

Coburn and Smith bowled on the same pair of lanes with the same

pros. "I would have never dreamed of this in a million years,"

Coburn said as she clutched her first-place check of $1,000,

Smith took home $500. …
