EULESS, Texas - Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., averaged 242 during the final five qualifying games on Sunday to earn the top seed for match play at the 2012 United States Bowling Congress Queens.

Kulick had games of 279, 232, 208, 258 and 234 to lead the field with a 3,453 pinfall total at AMF Euless Lanes. Anita Manns of Houston, who led the first two rounds of qualifying, was second at 3,323.

"Once the bracket starts, it doesn't mean anything, but I've never led this event," Kulick said. "Ten years it took me to lead this event; it's about time. But to know you are the No. 1 seed makes your swing feel a little more confident."

The top 64 players in the 131-player field had advanced to the final five qualifying games on Sunday morning. The top 48, including defending champion Missy Parkin, advanced to the double-elimination match-play bracket, which started Sunday afternoon. New for 2012, the top 16 players after qualifying received a first-round bye in match play.

The final five players will advance to the televised stepladder finals. The final two players in the winners bracket will be assured a spot on the television show, while the final three spots on the show will come from the contenders bracket.

BOWL.com's BowlTV will have live coverage of the match-play rounds. The finals, which will be held at the International Training and Research Center in Arlington, Texas, will be televised live on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday.

The match-play portion of the Queens at AMF Euless Lanes is open to the public at no charge.
