    Two new leaders emerge at USBC Women’s Championships

    2014USBCWCJeanetteAdams.jpg Jeanette Adams (pictured) of Sacramento, Calif., returned to the Reno-Sparks Convention Center as the reigning Scratch Singles champion at the United States Bowling Congress Women's Championships, and she nearly matched her winning-performance from a year ago.

    The 38-year-old left-hander rolled games of 233, 247 and 236 on May 25, but her 716 series left her just short of taking the lead again in 2014. Lisa Kelley of Wichita, Kan., leads Division 1 Singles with 748, the same total Adams posted on her way to title last year. Adams settled into fifth place overall this time around.

    Adams' run at another title was broadcast live on BowlTV, and after posting 562 in doubles, she switched to a ball she thought wouldn't work at the 44-lane venue.

    "I was stubborn in doubles," said Adams, who added a 634 series in team for a 1,912 all-events total. "The ball I was using felt good, so I tried to make it work. I looked at the ball I switched to in singles four times in my bag during doubles, and I said it wasn't going to work. I was being stubborn but decided to give it a try in singles. I'm really glad I made the change."

     


    Two new leaders emerge at USBC Women’s Championships


    Cecelia Daniels-Harrod of Bowie, Md., and Antonisha Doakes of Houston moved into the top spots in Division 3 Singles and Division 6 All-Events, respectively, this week at the USBC Women’s Championships.

    Daniels-Harrod got stronger each game at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, posting games of 182, 207 and 234 for 623 series. She passed Sabrina Middleton of Loxley, Ala., who previously held the lead with 612.

    Doakes rolled sets of 492 in singles, 464 in doubles and 456 in team to finish with a 1,412 total. Terry Fallon of Natick, Mass., had been on top with 1,396.

     


    A look ahead


    Carolyn Evans of Little Rock, Ark., will become the next member of the 50-Year Club at the USBC Women’s Championships when she takes to the lanes for her team event June 2 at 7 p.m. EDT.

    Evans, 73, started her tournament career at the 1963 event in Memphis, Tenn., and will join teammate Suda Bailey of Cabot, Ark., in the exclusive club. Bailey made her 50th appearance at the 2012 event at Reno’s National Bowling Stadium.
