    2012USBCWCSharonAronson.jpgSharon Aronson of Turlock, Calif., Tammy Lewis of San Jose, Calif., and Dianne Kost of Aurora, Colo., each made their way to the top of the leaderboard at the United States Bowling Congress Women's Championships on June 2.

    Aronson (pictured left), a 52-year-old right-hander and California USBC Association Hall of Famer, blistered the lanes at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev., with 761 in singles, 721 in doubles and 685 in team for a 2,167 total to take the lead in Scratch All-Events.

    She received an additional nine pins of handicap per game and also made a run at the lead in Diamond All-Events, but came up just short, settling into second place with 2,248. Jennifer Asplin of Oakley, Calif., previously held the lead in Scratch All-Events with 2,121, while Andee Tadiello of Brentwood, Calif., tops Diamond All-Events with 2,257.

    2012USBCWCTammyLewis.jpgAronson also is fifth in Diamond Doubles with Amie Silveira of Riverbank, Calif. (1,441) and tied for sixth in Diamond Singles (788).

    Lewis (right), a 40-year-old right-hander, started her singles event with games of 223 and 258 but saved her best for last and closed with 297 for a 778 series to grab the top spot in Scratch Singles.

    Only a 4-6-7 split on her final shot kept her from the first 300 of the 2012 event and 16th in 93 years of USBC Women's Championships competition. Judy Gurney of Omaha, Neb., previously held the top spot in Scratch Singles with 741.

    2012USBCWCDianneKost.jpgLewis added 634 in doubles and 609 in team to finish with a 2,021 all-events score, which is good for 10th in Scratch All-Events. She did not receive any handicap.

    Earlier in the day, Kost (left) jumped to the top of the leaderboard in Ruby All-Events with a 1,942 handicap total.

    Kost rolled a 670 series in singles, 633 in doubles and 549 in team to finish with a scratch total of 1,852. She received an additional 10 pins of handicap per game to reach her leading score. Her singles performance also helped her into second place in Ruby Singles with 700. Karla Alsgood of Rio Linda, Calif., previously held the Ruby All-Events lead with 1,925, while Edna Rilloraza of Beaverton, Ore., is the Ruby Singles leader with 728.

     


    Arkansas bowler makes 50th appearance at USBC Women's Championships


    2012USBCWCSudaBailey.jpgSuda Bailey of Cabot, Ark., has enjoyed the opportunity to travel across the country every year since 1963 to compete at the USBC Women's Championships.

    The 78-year-old right-hander (pictured left with Women's Championships Tournament Manager Eric Pierson) enjoyed an important milestone June 4 as she celebrated her 50th-consecutive tournament appearance. She is the sixth competitor to reach the milestone at the 2012 event. Her 1963 debut came in Memphis, Tenn., and the event has taken her to 39 cities in 27 states.

    "It becomes a part of your life after a while when you've been at it as long as we have," Bailey said. "We didn't have a lot of money to do this early on, so we were determined to make it out every year. We enjoy meeting people from all over the United States and exchanging our hog pins. It's just something we really enjoy."

    Bailey rolled a 364 series in doubles and 341 in team for her 50th appearance. She did not compete in singles.
