Scoring pace picks up at 2017 USBC Women’s Championships

The leaderboards at the 2017 United States Bowling Congress Women’s Championships have a new look as the tournament begins to settle in at the Raising Cane’s River Center in Baton Rouge, La.

In Diamond Doubles, a pair of bowlers from the Pelican State moved to the top of the standings as Kateri Celestin of New Orleans and Keosha Moore of Walker, Louisiana (right, r-l), posted a 1,243 total May 3. Moore led the duo with 666, and Celestin added 577.

A day earlier, two past USBC Women’s Championships titlists again found their stride on the championship lanes as Joeia Moore of North East, Maryland, and Jean Hall of Elkton, Maryland (left, l-r), took the Amethyst Doubles lead with a 919 total. Moore and Hall helped Alley Gators II win the 1998 Division III Team title, and the pair put together a consistent effort as Hall led the way with 465 and Moore added 454.
