    Two new leaders emerge in All-Events; top female bowlers in the country will visit the RSCC this week

    2014USBCWCAnnaGreen.jpg Anna Green (pictured) of Tacoma, Wash., always hoped her bowling career would include a perfect game, and that dream came true at the 2014 United States Bowling Congress Women's Championships when she finished her doubles event with 12 consecutive strikes.

    The 53-year-old right-hander became the third competitor of the 2014 tournament, and 23rd in the 95-year history of the USBC Women's Championships, to accomplish the feat. Tracey Stevens of Dunellen, N.J., and Jeri Espinoza of South San Francisco, Calif., also rolled 300 games this year at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.

    Green started doubles June 18 with games of 166 and 170 before making the right move, which finally got her lined up. The perfect finish helped her to a 636 series, the highest in her nine-year career at the Women's Championships.

    "On the last ball of the second game, I made an adjustment, and it seemed pretty good," said Green, who added 583 in singles and 552 in team for a career-best 1,771 all-events effort, placing her in a tie for seventh place in Division 2. "I told myself I would keep throwing it there until it didn't work anymore, and it worked all the way."

    Bowlers in Division 2 have entering averages of 175-189.

     


    Two new leaders emerge in All-Events at RSCC


    Mitzi Nichols of Fort Sumner, N.M., took control of Division 5 All-Events this week at 2014 USBC Women's Championships, while Angie Boone of Santa Barbara, Calif., moved into a tie for the lead of Division 3 All-Events.

    Nichols posted sets of 553 in singles, 496 in team and 469 in doubles to finish with a 1,518 total, surpassing Michele Sedersten of Saronville, Neb., who previously held the lead with 1,478. Nichols' singles score also was enough to move her into second place in Division 5 Singles. Laura Roberts of Council Bluffs, Iowa, leads with 558.

    Boone put together sets of 601 in doubles, 577 in team and 527 in singles to match the 1,705 series rolled by Eileen Stires of Hammonton, N.J.

    Bowlers in Division 3 have entering averages of 160-174, while competitors in Division 5 enter the tournament with averages of 130-144.

     


    A look ahead


    2014USBCWCLogo.jpg As the 2014 USBC Women's Championships nears its June 30 finish, the top female bowlers in the country will visit the RSCC this week in advance of the USBC Queens and Senior Queens, which will take place at the National Bowling Stadium from June 27-July 3.

    There will be five live stream broadcasts from the RSCC, starting June 22 at 7 p.m. EDT, when Time of Our Life of Saddle Brook, N.J., hits the lanes for its team event. The talented group consists of former collegiate standouts, and they have been regulars in the top 10 at the Women's Championships.

    On June 24 at 10 p.m. Eastern, Some Strike It Hot of Albuquerque, N.M., will be featured. The group captured the 2012 Diamond Team title and finished runner-up in the same event in 2013. The team also finished third in Scratch Team in 2013.

    On June 25 at 7 p.m. Eastern, former Team USA member and 2012 USBC Queens champion Diandra Asbaty and her talented team will be spotlighted. On June 26 at 3 p.m. Eastern, the 2013 Diamond Singles and All-Events champion Christine Gill will return to the RSCC to see if she can reclaim her spot at the top of the standings. Her doubles and singles competition will be featured.

    Finally, 2013 Scratch All-Events champion Rocio Restrepo will return to Reno to see if she can duplicate her near-record performance from 2013. The Colombian national team member posted the second-highest all-events score in Women's Championships history, 2,274, on her way to the title and added the only perfect game of the 2013 event along the way. Her doubles and singles will be broadcast June 27 at 11 a.m. Eastern.
