December 10, 2006

Danny Wiseman, who won his first career title in Baltimore in 1990, will be making his third TV appearance in his hometown event today at the Beltway Classic at AMF Country Club Lanes.

The 11-time Professional Bowlers Association Tour titlist from Dundalk will face Sean Rash of Wichita, Kan., who is seeking his second PBA Tour title in only his second TV appearance, in the first semifinal.

Wiseman advanced Friday after taking all seven games to defeat Norm Duke in the best-of-seven Round of 8 to make his first TV appearance since the 2004-05 PBA Tour season. Prior to that, Wiseman beat Chris Barnes and Brad Angelo by identical scores of 4-2.

"I've had some really bad luck the last couple of weeks," said Wiseman, who is looking for his first title since the 2004 Masters. "With all the things that have been going on the last couple of weeks and last year, there was added pressure. I knew that if I was going to do it, I better do it here."

Rash won his first career title in the 2006 West Virginia Championship in Parkersburg, W. Va.

Chris Loschetter will face Parker Bohn III in the other semifinal. The champion will take home $25,000 and a one-season PBA Tour exemption.
