$200,000 PHILIP MORRIS MIXED DOUBLES
The Orleans Bowling Center, Dec 11-13, 1998

Hoskins And Kim Canady Team To Win $200,000 Philip Morris Mixed Doubles

Steve Hoskins and Kim Canady were never threatened in the final round and cruised to the title in the $200,000 Philip Morris Mixed Doubles Championship at The Orleans Hotel, Casino and Bowling Center.

First place in the tournament, which is the final event of the year for both the PBA and PWBA (Professional Women's Bowlers Association) Tours, was worth $40,000 for the team.

The win was the sixth PWBA title for Canady, Oakland, Calif., and her first since 1995 when she teamed with Butch Soper to win this event. The win was PBA title No. 8 for Hoskins, Tarpon Springs, Fla., and his second of the year.

"This was a real team effort," said Canady. "I don't recall a match where both of us bowled poorly. We did a good job of picking each other up."

Hoskins and Canady combined to post a field-best team match play record of 24-8 and a total pinfall of 16,240, 369 pins more than the second-place team of Parker Bohn III and Cheryl Daniels. The margin of victory was the most in the nine-year history of the event.

"We had a nice lead going Into the last round and the first four games was the only chance for anyone to make a move on us .. . and nobody did," said Hoskins, who had the high average in the field at 245. 'Kim is great to bowl with. There isn't a negative bone in her body and she kept me very relaxed."
