Quiroz, entering with a 170 average, rolled games of 223, 127 and 184 for a 534 scratch series (669 handicap) to help the victorious team to a 1,404 score, which was three pins better than the runner-up total of 1,401 compiled by Nancy Wroe and Bob Somers.

Third place went to Ed Yager and Terri Thomas with a pinfall of 1,389, while Chuck Souzer and Saul Insignares finished in the No. 4 position at 1,382.
