Inaugural USBC Mixed wraps up in Reno


The inaugural edition of the United States Bowling Congress Mixed came to a close at the National Bowling Stadium on Tuesday.

The new event, held alongside the USBC Women’s Championships, featured four-player mixed teams (two men and two women), mixed doubles (one man and one woman) and open singles competition. Teams participated in one of four average-based divisions, while doubles and singles was contested across six average-based divisions.

Team competition was held on the main 78 lanes of the NBS, giving bowlers the opportunity to experience the high ceilings and championship atmosphere of the “Taj Mahal of Tenpins.”

Bowler’s Choice Pro Shop-Brentwood of Oakley, California, put up the highest team total, 2,514, to sit on top of the Division 1 Team standings. The team put together games of 880, 794 and 840, led by USBC Hall of Famer Liz Johnson‘s 710 series. Johnson was joined at the NBS by Aaron Pawloski (619), Ron Case (615) and Jennifer Asplin (570).

Reno’s David Dayton fired games of 224, 290 and 237 for a 751 series to lead the way in Division 1 Singles, while Tina and Stuart Williams (pictured right) of Phoenix led Division 1 Doubles with a 1,439 total. Stuart rolled games of 280, 268 and 279 for an 827 series, the tournament’s lone honor score. Tina, a former Team USA member, had games of 180, 187 and 245 for a 612 set.
