    Using experience gained from winning the 2010 NCAA National Championship at Fairleigh Dickinson University, the members of Time of Our Life II of Saddle Brook, N.J. (pictured), confidently rolled into the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev., and found similar success at the United States Bowling Congress Women's Championships on May 26.

    Lisa Friscioni's 727 series helped the group to games of 1,097, 1,101 and 1,084 for a 3,282 total, which landed Time of Our Life II in the top spot in Scratch Team. They received an additional 30 pins of handicap per game to also reach the Diamond Team lead with 3,372. Purple Brusers of El Paso, Texas, previously held the top spot in Scratch Team with 3,026, while Pindemonium of Elgin, Ill., had the Diamond Team lead with 3,368.

    Friscioni was joined by Sara Litteral (679), Joely Carrillo (653), Erica Perez (620) and Jennifer Viens (603). Friscioni is a member of the 2006 NCAA National Championship team and served as an assistant coach during the 2010 title run that featured Litteral, Carrillo and Perez as competitors.

    "Collegiate bowling definitely helps in this atmosphere," said Friscioni, who made her sixth USBC Women's Championships appearance. "It gave us an advantage because we've done this for four years, 10 months out of the year. Communication is key. Whenever someone has an idea, we all hear it out and go from there. We like to talk about what's going on. That's what we learned in college and what we do every time we're out on the lanes."
