ROME, N.Y. (September 14, 2019) – Rick Graham of Lancaster, Pa., the reigning East Region PBA50 Player of the Year, compiled a 3-5 match play record and a 15-game total of 3,524 pins to win the PBA50 King Pin Lanes Open at King Pin Lanes Saturday.

While Graham only managed to win three of his eight matches, his 228 average helped propel him to a 101-pin victory over Ryan Shafer of Horseheads, N.Y. For Graham, the trip to King Pin Lanes brought back fond memories because King Pin Lanes was the site of his first PBA regional win, in 2010.

Saturday’s win was Graham’s fifth in PBA Regional competition and earned him $1,500.  Shafer earned $750 as the runner-up.

The PBA East Region travels to Millsboro, Delaware next weekend for the PBA/PBA50 Millsboro Lanes Over/Under Double.  Each team consists of one bowler under the age of 50 and one 50 or older.
