A Salute to Bowling's Women Who Got the Ball Rolling

Finksburg Maryland's, Stacey Gaegler

While perhaps not the first of the formidable females to compete in the duckpin sport's "open" tournaments, Finksburg, Maryland's Stacey Gaegler has made the most waves, as of late. Stacey joined the Pop Whitten Pro Tour circuit in 2008, and has been extremely close to the winner's circle. Gaegler has qualified on the heels of some impressive 'scratch' performances during several of the tour stops within the past year. She pitched an impressive 921 6-game score at White Oak Lanes back in August of 2009, finishing 2nd on Day One only to the red-hot Bernie Hipkins, who had lapped the entire field with a whopping 979 score for 6 games.

Gaegler has qualified 5 times altogether in her 1 1/2 years on the PWPT tour, and in 3 of the last PWPT 6 tournaments she's entered, she finished 3-2 in match play against the best duckpinners in the country in each of the head-to-head semi-finals, just narrowly missing the stepladder finals. It won't take long before Stacey hits the jackpot. In her bowling career, Gaegler has captured one Womens National Duckpin Association pro tour and one of the sport's prestigious Ladies All-Star Classic events. A 15-year WNDA tour veteran, Stacey currently averages a strong 137 in her leagues, and has posted 3 games in her career of 220 or better, with 227 being her high single game.
