Christina Daniello had the right idea at the Section 1 sectional of Beat the Champions Saturday at Brunswick Zone-Hawthorn in Vernon Hills.

“Relaxing,’’ said the young woman from Addison, who works in billing for Flash Cab.’’Before every ball, I take one deep breath.’’

It worked as Daniello, who advanced from River Rand Bowl and was bowling her first tournament of any kind, topped the women’s side with a 636, including 186 pins in handicap.

(This is the extended online version of the Sun-Times story, including scores and a photo from the Illinois State BPA.)

Tom Hays and Tony Menard(front in photo) tied to lead the men’s side with 688. Hays, a Volo man who works in sales, is a scratch bowler who advanced from Lakes Bowl; while Menard, a mechanic for Midas from Morton Grove who advanced from Classic Bowl, had 105 pins of handicap.

The heavy oil did not bother either man.

“Tighter than I expected,’’ Hays said. “But I play a little straighter ball.’’

Henry Nilsen, the final men’s qualifier whose final game of 279 was high for the day, put the oil and the shot in perspective.

“It was pretty tight,’’ said Nilsen, a painter from Chicago. “`The shot was definitely outside. I didn’t adjust right away. I am more of a cranker than a stroker.’’

Four men and three women advanced to the finals, where a 2015 Ford Fiesta from Local Ford Stores is the top prize for both the men’s and woman’s champion. Also advancing were Ken Miles, a United pilot from Inverness, May Ann Palermo, a nurse manager at St. Joseph Hospital from Addison, and Mary Schatz, an RN from Des Plaines.

Sectionals continue today and next weekend for BTC, the charity bowling event cosponsored for 54 years by the Sun-Times and the Chicagoland Bowling Proprietors Association. League bowlers advancing to sectionals should have been notified by the CBPA.

The big number has nothing to do with oil or the shot. It is the $2,793,600.36 raised for charity by more than 5.7 million entries in the first 53 years of BTC. That includes $34,451.32 in 2013-14.
