By Hub City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – A Marshfield woman has claimed a top prize at the 2019 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Senior Championships in Cincinnati, OH.
Anita Schwantes, 83, faced bowlers from around the country to earn her place at the top in national competition.
In order to be eligible for national competition, senior bowlers must first earn a spot by winning the All Events division in state competition.
In 2018, Schwantes earned her place at nationals, with a 2,314 All Events score in the 75 & older handicap division at the Wisconsin State USBC competition.
Schwantes then moved on to the 2019 USBC Senior Championships, held Aug. 6-9 at Western Bowl in Cincinnati, OH, where she finished the tournament with a score of 739 in the Mixed 75 & older event, beating second-place bowler, Joseph Jellots of Starksville, MS, by 30 and walking away with the top prize.
