NW Resident Pro Championship

Hugh Miller, Centralia, made it two in a row as he captured this year's Resident Pro Championship at Gladstone Lanes. For Miller, the win put his NW leading total to an impressive 24 career victories to go along with 6 National Tour wins. Unfortunate for Hugh is that he will not be able to enter next month's NRPC in Reno, Nv., as he has a prior commitment to enter The U.S. Open in Los Angeles. This week's victory was never in doubt for Miller as he dominated the event for the entire 22 games, finishing close to 400 pins ahead of runner-up Mike Kasper. In total, eight NW PBA members earned the honor of performing at next month's NRPC in Reno. They will join 48 other players, from the additional 6 PBA regions, to chase the prestigious title. The defending NRPC champion is Seattle's Bob Davidson. The 2001 NRPC team members are listed below. 1. Hugh Miller, Centralia - W7 L3 - $1500 2. Mike Kasper, Beaverton - W8 L2 - $1100 3.
