Rookie Steven DiMartino Wins PBA50 Ned Micelli Memorial

NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. (July 29, 2018) – Steven DiMartino of Upper Saddle River, N.J., bowling in his first PBA regional event as a member, compiled a 5-2-1 match play record and a 15-game total of 3,352 pins to win the PBA50 Ned Micelli Memorial at Herrill Lanes Saturday by 49 pins over reigning PBA50 East Region Player of the Year Ray Edwards of Middle Island, N.Y.

DiMartino, who bowled in a handful of events as a non-member prior to joining in February, qualified for the match play finals in 10th position. He then rolled games of 256, 255, 232, 229, 170, 215, and 228 prior to the final position round match where he tied Edwards at 224-224 to split the 30 bonus pins awarded for match play wins, but it was enough to secure the victory and the $1,500 first prize. Edwards earned $800 as the runner-up.

The event, which was new to the PBA East Region, was organized by PBA member Glenn Smith of New York to honor Ned Micelli, a long-time fellow competitor. Micelli, who died in July 2017, competed well into his 80s throughout the Long Island area.

Next weekend, the PBA East Region holds the PBA Bowlers Supply/Storm Products Open at Colony Park Lanes North in York, Pa.
