Belmonte and Asbaty are top qualifiers in “The Lucy”

Three-time defending Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte of Australia and amateur/professional standout Diandra Asbaty of Chicago, combined to average 221.6 to lead 152 doubles teams after qualifying Saturday in the Storm PBA/PWBA Xtra Frame Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles at Bowl on Bellaire in Houston, Texas.

Belmonte and Asbaty had a 3,547 16-game pinfall total to top 38 teams that advanced to Sunday morning’s cashers’ round that will determine the top eight teams for the final match play round Sunday afternoon.

Belmonte bowled a 1,985 pinfall with games of 255, 247, 261, 221, 215, 228, 279 and 279. Asbaty bowled 1,562 with games of 180, 178, 198, 180, 189, 192, 232, 213.

“It was one of those days where every move I made was the right one,” said Belmonte, who recently won his third best bowler ESPY. “I made some blind moves that just happened to work but could have just easily not have worked.”

With a best finish of fourth in the FireLake PBA Tournament of Champions this season, the two-hander with 12 career PBA Tour titles, is looking forward to the potential of winning his first title of the year.

“I’m going to keep my fingers crossed,” Belmonte said. “I’ve been bowling well lately but really Diandra and I are just hoping we finish strong regardless of where we end up.”

Asbaty, the winner of the 2012 USBC Queens and two PBA Women’s series titles, won the 2003 event with partner Dino Castillo and is trying for her first PWBA title. “I’m just really in awe of bowling with Jason,” Asbaty said. “He has unbelievable power and it’s really an honor to be able to bowl with him.

“Fortunately, I bowled well at the end of the block but hopefully I’ll be able to contribute more tomorrow,” the 15-time Team USA member added.

Despite being good friends and having shared experiences bowling internationally together it’s the first time the pair have bowled together in topflight competition. “Diandra asked me if our schedules ever enabled us to bowl this tournament would I like to bowl with her?” Belmonte said. “I said absolutely and so far we’re making the best of it.

“Anytime you bowl with friends it provides a great environment where you can help each other out. That doesn’t always happen in team competition where a coach may pair you up and you don’t necessarily have that chemistry.”
