NATIONAL NEWS In a battle of Texans, Mike Fagan of Dallas topped Chris Barnes of Double Oak, 246-213, in the
title match of the 2012 Alka-Seltzer Plus Liquid Gels United States Bowling Congress Masters at Sunset Station’s Strike Zone Bowling Center in Henderson, Nev. The victory was the fi rst ca- reer major for the 31-year-old Fagan, who also has three Professional Bowlers Association Tour titles to his credit. “I know how few and far between these opportunities can be,” said Fagan. “For me to take advantage of it is amazing.” Fagan entered the four-player stepladder as the second seed and defeated Bryon Smith of Roseburg, Ore., 228-180, to reach the fi nal. Despite failing to strike in the fi rst four frames in the fi nale, Fagan reeled off seven straight strikes to pull ahead of Barnes. Barnes, who needs a Masters title to complete bowling’s career Grand Slam, lost as the Masters’ top seed for the third time. Fagan earned $50,000 for the Masters crown.
