Clara Guerrero joins fellow Columbia 300 staffer Missy Parkin as the second woman to win three PBA Regional Titles

By Bill Vint

Colombia native Clara Guerrero, now residing in Pflugerville, Texas, defeated Anthony Lavery-Spahr of Pasadena, Texas, 246-236, to claim a record-tying third PBA Regional title Sunday in the fifth annual PBA Odessa Southwest Open, presented by Columbia 300 at Astro Bowl in Odessa, Texas. 

Guerrero rallied from an early deficit behind two turkeys and she had an opportunity to close out Lavery-Spahr with a double in her 10th frame. A 7 pin on her second shot gave Lavery-Spahr a chance for the win, but needing a double, he could only manage the first strike. 

In addition to the $2,500 first place check, Guerrero joined California’s Missy Parkin as the second woman to win three PBA Regional titles.
