Siggy’s Team 1 has helped distinguished Watertown in the national bowling ranks once again, this time as a team.

The city-based squad recently took first place in the Ruby Team competition at the United States Bowling Congress Women’s Championships in Reno, Nev.

The team features Mary Farney, Amber Leween, Brittany Signor, Patti Signor and Mary Weston.

Siggy’s Team 1 posted team games of 834, 944 and 984 to record a 2,762 scratch series and after receiving an additional 53 pins of handicap per game finished with its winning total score of 2,921.

The triumph also marked the second USBC Women’s Championships title for Brittany Signor, who claimed the Diamond Singles championship at the 2011 event in Syracuse.

Brittany Signor helped pace Siggy’s Team 1 to the 2013 title by finishing 28 pins ahead of second-place finisher We Got Spirit of Copperas Cove, Texas. Steph’s Team of Baltimore (2,865), Lewiston Ladies of Lewiston, Mont. (2,851) and RDU Rollers No. 3 of Durham, N.C. (2,849) rounded out the top five. The 94th running of the USBC women’s championships concluded July 1, but because of “the extensive nature of checking and verifying scores and averages,” the final results were only recently declared official.

The Ruby competition is comprised of five-player teams with combined averages between 750 and 899 with a handicap based on 100 percent of a 900 combined score. The Diamond division features bowlers with averages of 180 and above with its handicap based on 100 percent of 220.

The tournament, which was held on 44 specially-designed lanes at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, also included Sapphire and Scratch divisions. With more than 4,300 teams and 21,000 bowlers competing, it is billed as the world’s largest participatory sporting event for women.
