PARKS POWERS THRU FOR LEAD

by PBA Editor August 9, 2008 19:00
Despite suffering from swelling in his back, Kenny Parks was able to overcome the pain to finish with 1,900 pins during the early session on Sunday, and held on for the lead in first-round action at the PBA Senior Decatur Open at Spare Time Lanes.
 
Parks of East Chicago, Indiana, was the only bowler on A Squad to have all 8 games over 200 with scores of: 215, 277, 257, 239, 258, 227, 214 and 213.
 
“I’m really happy,” Parks said. “I was just trying to get through the block. My back was really swelled up this morning. I was actually hoping to switch to the later block, but I just tried to manage the pain and get through it. “I had the right ball in my hand … I used a new ball, I didn’t even throw it until today. I am sure glad to be leading, especially with my back. So far, so good.”
 
Wayne Webb, of Sacramento, Calif. chased Parks in the second session, but came up short 25 pins.
 
Parks hopes to keep his back in check and continue his success.
 
“I have a really good chance to be the Player of the Year, but (Tom) Baker’s really close,” Parks said. “I’m trying to hold off some of the big guns here.”
 
 
Qualifying resumes Monday at 8 a.m.
