Stratford, N.J. (July 9, 2017) – Ray Edwards of Middle Island, N.Y. defeated Jay Davis of Silver Spring, Md., 279-231, to win the PBA50 Cecil Raymond Memorial presented by Columbia 300 at 30 Strikes Sunday for his 22nd overall PBA Regional title.

Edwards, a three-time PBA East Region Player of the Year and the current PBA50 East Region Player of the Year, averaged 259 during the Sunday's finals. His final three games were 298, 300 and 279 for an 877 series. For Davis, the qualifying leader, an early split virtually eliminated any chance at his first PBA title. Edwards won $1,500 while Davis earned $850 for his runner-up finish.

The tournament, which began in 2004, was renamed in 2014 to honor its sponsor, who passed away in January 2014. Raymond was the 2013 recipient of the East Region's Pat Patterson Award for outstanding contributions to the region.

Edwards defeated Howard Snyder of Hunt Valley, Md., 300-188, and Davis defeated Steve Jones of Berlin, Md., 238-236, in the semifinal round. Snyder and Jones each earned $700 as semifinal round losers.

In two weeks, the PBA East Region hosts a doubleheader at Parkway Lanes in Elmwood Park, N.J. The PBA50 Parkway Lanes Eastern Open will be staged on July 21-22 while the women compete in the PBA-PWBA Parkway Lanes Eastern Open on July 23.
