The 16 women have been determined who will join male partners for the match play portion of the PBA Bayer Don and Paula Carter Mixed Doubles which begins Friday at Brunswick Zone Wheat Ridge.

Leading after the PBA Women’s Series presented by BOWL.COM second round qualifying is two-time Women’s Series titlist Michelle Feldman of Auburn, N.Y.

Feldman ended Thursday’s qualifying with a 3,199 overall pinfall (228 average) to hold a 115-pin lead over another two-time Women’s Series titlist Shannon Pluhowsky of Kettering, Ohio.

“I haven’t had a real good year so this is the last hurrah for me this season—hopefully I can finish the season with a good result,” Feldman said. “Now you just pray that you’re paired with a partner you get along with and have good chemistry with.

“The one thing we all have in common is that we’re here to bowl well and try the best we can so I’m looking forward to match play whoever I’m bowling with.”

The Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour final qualifying round gets underway later this afternoon which will determine the 16 men who will advance to match play.

The top 16 men and top 16 women will be paired together to compete in match play on Friday. After 16 head-to-head doubles matches, the top five teams will advance to the stepladder finals. The finals format will use the Baker Format where each player will bowl five alternate frames to combine for one score.

The Mixed Doubles finals will be televised live by ESPN at 1 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Mountain) on Sunday, Feb. 21.
