There were two regular seniors, three super seniors and 1 super, super seniors and 1 female below the cut line that advanced to Eliminations. Joe Smart and Mike Snow were the two regular seniors, Sandy Schultz, Richard Kurt and Sam Girgenti were our 3 super seniors below the cut line. Only one SSS can advance below the cut line and the top SSS was Ed Austreng advancing by just 2 pins over Dave Berhardt and only 5 pins over Nick Beelaard making for a very close fight to advance by those three SSS bowlers.
