New Hui Fen of Singapore dominated the first day of the 2024 USBC Queens in Green Bay, Wisconsin, averaging over 252 and leading by almost 100 pins. She shot impressive games of 227, 245, 246, 266, and 278 for a total of 1,262.

New attributed her success to a meticulously crafted game plan, which allowed her to adapt to varying lane conditions efficiently.

"I had four different plans, sticking with the one that worked,” said New.

The closest contender is Colombia’s Laura Plazas with 1,166 pins. In third place stands Liz Kuhlkin of Schenectady, New York, with a total pinfall of 1,156, closely followed by Jillian Martin of Stow, Ohio, occupying the fourth position with 1,155 pins.

European players also made their mark, with Latvia’s Diana Zajalova securing a respectable fifth place with 1145 total. England’s Verity Crawley (7th) and Germany’s Birgit Noreiks (10th) showcased their prowess, solidifying their positions in the top 10.

Defending champion Lindsay Boomershine faced a challenging start, currently tied for 38th place. However, with the tournament structure allowing the top 63 qualifiers, including the defending champion, to advance to the match-play bracket starting Sunday, the competition is far from over.

As the USBC Queens moves forward, excitement builds for the upcoming match-play rounds, where players will compete to move closer to winning the prestigious tiara and the top prize of $60,000.

The USBC Queens finals scheduled to be broadcasted on Tuesday. Full results of the qualifying round 1 can be found here.
