Scott Newell of Deland, Fla., defeated Rick Graham of Lancaster, Pa., 194-165, to win the $10,000 first prize in the PBA East Region Appletree Classic at Mid-County Lanes in Middletown, Pa

Newell, who posted a 9-3 match play record, earned the top position for the stepladder finals by 84 pins by defeating Graham, 267-198, in the position round match. The win was Newell's fourth career PBA regional title. He earned his first PBA Tour title in Columbus, Ohio, in February.

Newell's $10,000 prize matched the largest payoff in PBA East Region history, matching the prize earned in the same event last year by Dick Allen of Columbia, S.C. The tournament, sponsored by Appletree Answering Service for the second season, drew a field of 148 participants.

And further good news for PBA East Region competitors: Appletree has already announced it will renew its sponsorship for 2013.
