    2014USBCWCBowlieveInACure.jpgBowlieve In A Cure of Arlington, Texas, took the lead in Diamond Team at the 2014 United States Bowling Congress Women's Championships on June 26.

    Led by 2005 USBC Queens champion Tennelle Milligan's 752 series, Bowlieve In A Cure rolled games of 971, 924 and 924 for a 2,819 set at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. Storm Nation of Brigham City, Utah, set the bar in Diamond Team with 2,745 on the previous squad.

    Milligan was joined by Team USA member Shannon O'Keefe (724), USBC Hall of Famer Lynda Barnes (678) and two-time USBC Women's Championships titlist Kendra Gaines (665). L-R Barnes,Milligan, Gaines and O'Keefe.

    "The key to success is communication," said Milligan, who made her 16th appearance at the Women's Championships. "We were talking about what was happening, trusting in one another and helping each other out. We had a game plan coming in and stuck to it. We knew what we were going to do and committed to it."

    The two-time Queens champion started doubles with games of 219 and 260 before closing the set with the fifth 300 of the 2014 event, and 25th in tournament history, for a 779 series. She added 683 in singles for a 2,140 all-events total and moved past USBC Hall of Famer Jeanne Naccarato (right) of Tacoma, Wash., who rolled a perfect game on the way to a 2,081 effort.

    Barnes' perfect game also helped her and Tennelle Milligan of Arlington (258) into a tie for the tournament's highest doubles game with 558. Milligan added a 616 series to help the duo into fourth place in Division 1 Doubles with 1,395.
