WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIPS WEEKLY GLANCE (For June 17 – June 23, 2017)

First-year bowler takes Topaz lead at 2017 USBC Women’s Championships
Fresh off her first full season as a member of the United States Bowling Congress, Denise Guthrie of Kinsey, Alabama, decided to take a chance and compete in the 2017 USBC Women’s Championships in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The 39-year-old left-hander didn’t know what to expect as she headed to the Raising Cane’s River Center, but she left as the Topaz All-Events leader after posting a 1,367 total this week. Sandra Orchard of Kaysville, Utah, previously held the lead with 1,312.

Guthrie’s scores soared during her doubles and singles June 17, rolling sets of 505 and 499, respectively, to go along with a 363 effort in team.

Guthrie’s 499 singles series was enough to also move her into second place in Topaz Singles, and she teamed with Jaymie Coggins of Slocomb, Alabama, to move into a tie for fourth place in Amethyst Doubles with a 941 total.

Alissa Ebneter of Belle Plaine, Minnesota, leads Topaz Singles at the 2017 Women’s Championships with 518, and Mary Quintana of Price, Utah, and Lorraine Berryhill of Helper, Utah, lead Amethyst Doubles with 1,009.

Topaz All-Events and Singles include bowlers with entering averages of 129 and below, and Amethyst Doubles features pairs with combined entering averages of 260-289.

A look ahead
Lorie Perry of Tucson, Arizona, will celebrate a milestone this week at the 2017 USBC Women’s Championships as she makes her 50th tournament appearance June 26.

Perry, 86, made her tournament debut at the 1962 Women’s Championships in Phoenix.
