Team Colombia ended the day with a team total of 4113, with Juliana Franco at 1329 and Maria Rodriguez at 1389. Team Mexico captured the second spot at 4010 with Sandra Gongora rolling a 1380. Team USA is third at 3978 with Missy Parkin setting the pace at 1398, and Team Korea secured the fourth spot at 3962, led by Dewun Jung, who rolled a 1359.

“The strategy was to stay outside to improve my carry, but when we got to lane 29 and 30, the ball broke early, so I moved about five boards left. I was still right of my team mates, but it worked well for me and we finished strong,” said Guerrero. “I am very happy to bowl well for my team.”

“Today was a great day for Colombia,” said David Rivera, coach and team manager for Columbia. “Clara was amazing in the last game, and we are very proud of Maria and Juliana too. They are all great at making the adjustments. It was a very good day for us.”

The Trios event semi-finals and finals will roll on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the Team event will feature five player teams rolling two three game rounds, and the tournament qualifying concludes on Wednesday with the Masters event competition.
