Higgins Scores “4 peat” in State Queen’s tournament held at Akron Lanes:
Former Canton Resident Jennifer Higgins went undefeated to capture her fourth consecutive Ohio Queens title at Bill White’s Akron Bowl over the weekend. The former Team USA player who now hails from the Central Ohio area, went through the Winners bracket undefeated to grab the top seed in the step-ladder finals.

Jenn Higgins, 2016 USBC WBA Queens ChampionIn the step-ladder finals she defeated fourth seeded Melissa Van Dyke of Cleveland who was attempting to go all the way through the step-ladder field to the title. The southpaw Van Dyke opened the step-ladder finals with a 253-228 victory over Amber Sells, Van Dyke striking on seven of her last eight balls. This brought into the fray 2000 Queens champion Kari Watson of Dayton. The match was never in doubt as Van Dyke tossed the front eight strikes to coast to a 268-193 victory. Second seeded Andrea Behr who was the last person to suffer their first defeat in the winners bracket was next up. A late turkey by Van Dyke sealed the feat of Behr 194-184. In the title match, the tall Higgins tossed a five bagger mid match, but then Van Dyke threw a four-bagger late to force Higgins to toss a strike on her first ball in the tenth, which she did for the 235-228 win. The top Akron area player in the field was Nikki Stiteler of Medina, who lost in the second round of the winners bracket to Cincinnati’s Stacey Fehr daughter of PBA champion Steve Fehr and Nancy Amlung Fehr. Stiteler then went into the losers bracket of the double-elimination event where she defeated Carly Graham, and Jamie Beard before losing to Blair Blumenscheid. Erin Jackson of Portage County was also knocked into the losers bracket by Fehr, she then won one match in the losers bracket before being sidelined by Kristie Hegedus. Barberton High School graduate Denise (Spencer) Hauenstein lost to Shannon DeWitt before defeating Heidi Sanders and losing to Jamie Beard.

Stiteler was one of four ladies to fire a 300 game, doing it in the first game of match play. She fired 548 for her first two games of match play. This was the 30th annual Queens tournament, which began in 1986 and was won by Vicki Montgomery of Akron. This was Higgins, fifth overall win, she also captured the title in 2008 as Jennifer Petrick.
