SCHINNEN, Netherlands — Heidelberg’s Duice Love and Vilseck’s Krista Weister claimed the men’s and women’s singles and all-events crowns Friday as the three-day 2003 Army-Europe bowling tournament wrapped up at the Schinnen Bowling Center.

Love rolled a six-game block of 1,316 Friday to claim the men’s singles crown by 16 pins over Asa Peck of Schinnen. Weister rolled a 1,214 block to outscore Schinnen’s Mercy Komen by 111 pins.

Friday’s scores boosted Love’s 18-game tournament total to 4,012, tops among the men, while Weister’s all-events total rose to a women’s-best 3,509.

Love also posted the best men’s three-game series of the tournament, a 723 masterpiece in Thursday’s doubles that followed a 704 set and boosted him to a six-game block of 1,427.

Weister went Love one better by rolling the best women’s series, a 612, and the women’s high game, a 245.

Roosevelt Scott of Rhein-Main Air Base posted the men’s high game of the tournament on Friday, a 289. That was one pin more than Vilseck’s Anthony Grubba rolled during Thursday’s doubles. Scott and Grubba each bowled 10 straight strikes during those games, as did Alexander Moore of Stuttgart during his 268 game on Friday.

Love’s two crowns on Friday completed a sweep of all four trophies available at the event. On Wednesday, he was a member of Heidelberg’s winning Ask Yo Mama team, which beat the Smack Down quartet from Schinnen 4,571-4,528. Thursday, Love teamed with Jason Reformat to win the doubles, 2,550-2,495, over Schinnen’s Peck and John Moore.

Weister also won a doubles title when she teamed with Grubba on Thursday to outscore Komen and Derek Van Duyne of Schinnen, 2,279-2,148, in mixed doubles.
