SHARPSTEEN SETS NEW NLAC RECORD – 888 HIGH SERIES
AT MISSION HILLS BOWL
Bowling on lanes 19-20 in the
Tuesday night Men's Classic League at Mission Hills Bowl, ANTHONY
SHARPSTEEN put together games of 289-299-300 for an
incredible 888 series. A packed 9-pin and two solid
7-pins kept Anthony from that elusive 900 series we all shoot for. This
is a new high series mark for the North Los Angeles County USBC.
Unfortunately his team lost all three games that night. From the
management and staff at Mission Hill Bowl and the NLAC Association, we
congratulate Anthony on his outstanding record performance.
One of the most important tasks for any
local USBC Association is the annual lane inspection/certifications.
We are currently looking to add new members to our inspection crew.
Do you have engineering, mechanical or technical background? Have you
always wondered how the lanes are maintained from the foul like to the
pits? Then YOU might just be the person we're looking for in a Certified
Lane Inspector. With 16 centers to certify within the NLAC, it is
a tremendous task to schedule and certify all of the centers between
April 1 & July 31 each year. Over the past few years, we've relied on a
small, but dedicated crew. If you would like to learn more, please call
or email the NLAC office.

ROBIN Romeo wins Senior U.S. Women's Open
Published June 26, 2012
RENO, Nev. - United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer Robin Romeo of Newhall, Calif., added another green jacket to her collection as she won the 2012 Bowling's Senior U.S. Women's Open at the National Bowling Stadium on Tuesday.
The 1989 U.S. Women's Open
champion defeated fellow Hall of Famer Lucy Sandelin of Tampa, Fla.,
225-188 to claim the championship trophy, green jacket and $5,000 top
prize. With her win in the inaugural running of the event, she becomes
the first female bowler in history to own both a U.S. Women's Open and
Senior U.S. Women's Open title.
"It's awesome," Romeo said. "(BPAA
Executive Director) Steve Johnson just told me I made history because I
won the U.S. Women's Open in 1989 so now I'm the first to win both. I
didn't even remember that I did get the green jacket. I love it."
Romeo was able to jump out to
an early lead in the title match as Sandelin opened in two of the first
five frames. Despite the early lead, Romeo knew she had to keep pressing
until the final frame was in the books.
"Lucy doesn't miss spares, so
for her to start the match with an open was surprising," Romeo said.
"When bowling for a championship, or even any match, I try not to pay
attention to what my opponent is doing and just bowl my own game. I knew
Lucy eventually would start striking and knew I couldn't let up."
More than 20 years after
claiming her first U.S. Women's Open title, Romeo cherishes the
opportunity to grasp another major championship.
"You never think you're going
to win again," said an emotional Romeo after the title match. "But the
feeling never gets old. You work so hard and compete your whole life. As
you get older things change but the fire is still burning inside. I love
competing. I've been bowling better and had a lot of confidence and knew
if I just bowled my game and kept my head in a good place things would
work out right."
USBC Hall of Famer's Jeanne
Naccarato of Tacoma, Wash., and Dana Miller-Mackie of Albuquerque, N.M.,
squared off in the opening match of the stepladder finals, with
Naccarato prevailing 225-177. Romeo went on to defeat Naccarato 244-218
to advance to the championship match against Sandelin.
More than 60 of the top female
bowlers age 50 and over made their way to Reno for the inaugural event.
