2016 USBC Mixed comes to a close in Las Vegas


    United States



    2016USBCMixedLogo.jpgThe 2016 United States Bowling Congress Mixed concluded its second run alongside the USBC Women's Championships on Sunday.

    The USBC Mixed, which made its debut in 2015 at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nevada, kicked off April 10 and featured four-player mixed team (two men and two women), mixed doubles (one man and one woman) and open singles competition.

    From left to right: Michael Fagan, Shannon Sellens, Marcia Kloempken and Bryan O'Keefe.

    Mixed team events were held at the new South Point Bowling Plaza, while doubles and singles were contested at the South Point Bowler Center. Both are located at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

    The divisional structure at The Mixed mirrors the format at the Women's Championships and includes four average-based divisions for the team event and six divisions for doubles and singles. All standings are unofficial and pending final verification.

    Go Bears of Benicia, California (pictured above), set the bar in Division 1 Team, averaging nearly 220 as a team May 23 for a 2,639 total.

    Led by five-time Professional Bowlers Association Tour titlist Michael Fagan's 746 series, Go Bears improved each game at the Bowling Plaza, using scores of 826, 867 and 946 to secure the lead.

    Fagan was joined by Shannon Sellens (664), Bryan O'Keefe (664) and Marcia Kloempken (565).

    Larry Trenn Jr. of Aurora, Colorado, used a 278 game in his final game May 20 to push his way into the lead in Division 1 Singles with a 745 total. Trenn added 222 and 245 during the performance.

Ishman paced the effort with a 751 set, and Peters added 710.

    Justin Sloan (right) of Saddle Brook, New Jersey, also left his mark by rolling the first perfect game in Mixed history June 27, while competing in doubles.

    The Mixed will follow the Women's Championships to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 2017. Team, doubles and singles competition for the 2017 Mixed will be held at All Star Lanes and run from April 24-July 9.
