Three new leaders emerge this week at Raising Cane’s River Center

New leaders emerged in Ruby Team, Emerald Singles and Topaz Doubles this week at the USBC Women’s Championships at Raising Cane’s River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisianna.

Sport Bowl 2 of Sioux Falls, South Dakota (pictured above), improved each game June 7 on its way to the Ruby Team lead with a 2,158 total. Led by Jessica Morford‘s 599 series, Sport Bowl 2 used games of 681, 730 and 747 to surpass Chevrolet of Helena of Helena, Montana, which previously held the lead with 2,105.

Morford was joined at the River Center by 1998 Division 1 Doubles champion Julie Jarman (546), Allison Coy (512) and Tonya Van Veldhuizen (501). Ruby Team features four-player teams with combined entering averages of 650-724.

Janet Clark (right) of Albuquerque, New Mexico, finished her singles set with five consecutive strikes on her way into the lead in Emerald Singles with a 623 series June 6.

Clark started singles at the River Center with games of 207 and 190, while her late string of strikes pushed her to a 226 finish. Melanie Prough of Woodbine, Georgia, previously held the lead with 608.

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

Janice York of Clarendon, Arkansas, and Terri McIntosh of Humphrey, Arkansas, moved into the Topaz Doubles lead June 7 with a 907 total at the River Center, passing Jaclyn Meyer and Victoria Krukowski of Ottawa, Ohio, who previously held the top spot with 872.

York led the effort with games of 163, 147 and 144 for a 454 series, and McIntosh added 175, 159 and 119 for a 453 total.

Topaz Doubles includes bowlers with combined entering averages of 259 and below.

Arkansas bowler makes 55th consecutive USBC Women’s Championships appearance

Suda Bailey (pictured) of Cabot, Arkansas, celebrated her 55th consecutive United States Bowling Congress Women’s Championships appearance this week at the Raising Cane’s River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The 83-year-old began her tournament career at the 1963 event in Memphis, Tennessee, and she’s had the opportunity to visit 39 cities and 27 states while making her annual visit to the world’s largest participatory sporting event for women.

Bailey got her start in the sport after a friend asked her to join a league, which was followed by an invitation to bowl in the USBC Women’s Championships. She quickly agreed to make her way to Memphis’ Imperial Lanes for her debut.

“It was a short drive from home, so that’s why I said yes,” said Bailey, who received a plaque, chevron and watch June 5 to commemorate her most recent achievement. “When I said ‘let’s go next year (to Minneapolis),’ our group’s organizer said it was too far, but we saved money all year long, so we could go on the trip.”

Bailey reached her 50th consecutive appearance during the 2012 event in Reno, Nevada, and she was able to watch her teammate, Carolyn Evans of Little Rock, Arkansas, reach the same milestone two years later in The Biggest Little City in the World.

Evans made her 53rd appearance this week, with each being alongside Bailey.

A Look Ahead

One month of competition remains at the 2017 USBC Women’s Championships before the final ball is rolled at the Raising Cane’s River Center.

The 2017 event, which kicked off April 23, will conclude July 10.
