Nevada pair coasts into doubles lead at 2016 USBC Mixed

2016USBCMixedLogo.jpgMelissa Peters of Henderson, Nevada, and Adam Ishman of Las Vegas cruised into the lead in Division 1 Doubles at the United States Bowling Congress Mixed on July 3 with a 1,461 total.

Ishman, a 36-year-old right-hander, led the effort with games of 247, 235 and 269 for a 751 series, while Peters, a 29-year-old right-hander, added 248, 217 and 245 for 710. Past Team USA members Marcia Kloempken of Pleasant View, Utah, and Steve Smith of San Diego previously held the lead with 1,381.

Peters and Ishman quickly saw a look at the South Point Bowling Center that was going to give them an opportunity to make a run at the leading number, and they put an exclamation point on the effort by averaging 257 in the final game.

“I knew after the first game it was looking pretty good,” said Ishman, who helped K&K Bowling Services 5 of Las Vegas capture the Team All-Events title at the 2011 USBC Open Championships. “We broke them down the right way and just tried to keep it going with what we had to start.”

Division 1 Doubles features mixed pairs with combined entering averages of 380 and above.
