Arizona bowler reaches 50 years at USBC Women’s Championships

Ads


Lorie Perry of Tucson, Arizona, celebrated a milestone appearance in one of her favorite United States Bowling Congress Women’s Championships host cities as she became the latest bowler to join the tournament’s 50-Year Club at the Raising Cane’s River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisianna.

The 86-year-old began her tournament career at the 1962 event in Phoenix, and she received a plaque, chevron and necklace June 26 to commemorate her longevity on the championship lanes.

Perry (above), a retired Air Force first sergeant, has traveled to 36 cities and 26 states throughout her tournament career, often driving to the event.

Having the 2017 event held in Red Stick made for a special return for Perry because that’s where she rolled the highest series of her USBC Women’s Championships career, a 626 series during team at the 1993 event. The 1993 edition of the tournament was held at Metro Bowl and Don Carter’s All-Star Lanes.

As Perry accepted her awards at the Raising Cane’s River Center, she encouraged all the bowlers in attendance to persevere toward those goals, too.

“I can’t believe I made it this far, because I missed several tournaments because of being active duty in the Air Force,” said Perry, a member of the Tucson Women’s Bowling Association Hall of Fame. “I hope all of you can one day stand up here like I am, and you can. Just keep doing it, coming to bowl the tournament.”

Florida pair ties Emerald Doubles lead at Raising Cane’s River Center

Longtime USBC Women’s Championships doubles partners Holly Davis and Teresa Bazley of Jacksonville, Florida, put that experience to use as they were able to secure a share of the Emerald Doubles lead at the 2017 event.

Davis and Bazley (above, l-r), each making her 11th Women’s Championships appearance, used games of 337, 399 and 362 at the Raising Cane’s River Center for a 1,098 total June 28, matching the effort posted by Betty Jean Davis of Herbert, Illinois, and Wendy Mann of South Elgin, Illinois.

Davis led the pair with games of 207, 206 and 199 for a 612 series, and Bazley added games of 130, 193 and 163 for a 486 set.

Emerald Doubles features teams with combined entering averages of 320-349.

A look ahead

Lillie Mae Holman of Bloomfield, New Jersey, is scheduled to be the ninth and final competitor of the 2017 USBC Women’s Championships to celebrate 50 years on the championship lanes, making her milestone appearance July 6.

Holman, 83, began her tournament career at the 1967 event in Rochester, New York, and she has made her annual appearance each year since 1969.

The 2017 Women’s Championships kicked off April 23 and will conclude July 10.
