Canadian team takes Ruby lead at USBC Women’s Championships

2016USBCWCCanucksofLondonOntario.jpgConsistency was the name of the game for the members of Canucks of London, Ontario, Canada, as the quartet cruised into the lead in Ruby Team at the 2016 United States Bowling Congress Women’s Championships on June 14.

After starting the event with a 793 effort, Canucks remained steady at the South Point Bowling Plaza, adding games of 771 and 770 for a 2,334 total. Road Trip of Naperville, Illinois, previously held the lead with 2,226.

Jill Friis paced Canucks with a 618 series, while Debbie Sims (604), Judy Hansen (560) and Karen MacNeil (552) helped finish off a performance that did not see an individual game dip below 176 or head north of 227.

The group has made the annual trek to the USBC Women’s Championships for several years and was elated to see the commitment and dedication pay off.

“We knew we were bowling pretty well after the first game and just wanted to keep it going,” said Friis, who made her 31st tournament appearance. “We’ve been together at this for a long time, so it feels like we’ve paid our dues. We come out here every time and give it our best, and this is the first time we’ve done something like this.”

Ruby Team features four-player teams with combined entering averages of 650-724.

Faith Nealon of Dallas emerged as the frontrunner in Emerald Singles after posting a 642 series at the USBC Women’s Championships on June 14.

The 58-year-old right-hander fired games of 234, 174 and 234 at the South Point Bowling Plaza to move to the top of the standings. Alyssa Keyser of Bridger, Montana, previously held the lead with 638.

Nealon’s final game included five consecutive strikes early on, but a missed spare in the seventh frame forced her to find one more double for an opportunity at the lead. She bounced back with strikes in the eighth and ninth frames and converted a 6-9 spare in the 10th to solidify her spot in the Emerald rankings.

Emerald Singles features bowlers with entering averages of 160-174.
