Ventura-It was the “icing on the cake” for the CUSBC Women’s Championship Tournament when on May 21 Krista (Moerschbaecher) Delgado, a 225 average bowler who calls Buena Lanes, “MY HOUSE” opened up her Team Event with 234, added a 256 game and finished up with her third career “300’ Game, for a 790 series. This was the third “300” game bowled at this year’S tournament.

Krista began her bowling career at age 5 and was possessed by the game she loved so much. Her high game as a youth bowler was 298. At age 18, she gave up bowling and moved to Florida. Krista returned to her game here in California in 2009 and joined her first Adult League at Mission Bowl with Brian Leseberg. She remembers how all while a youth bowler; she envisioned her first “300” game. It finally happened…. July 2010, in the Ball of Choice League at Buena Lanes while bowling with her coach Art Leseberg and wife Diane. Exactly 4 weeks later, she bowled another “first” …an 825 series in that same league. The very next night, Krista recorded her second “300” game at Wagon Wheel Bowl. With her 825 series, Krista currently holds the record for the women in Ventura County. In this tournament, Krista threw her “300”, using her Total NV by Ebonite, a gift from Mark French, a great bowler and personal friend. She says “I originally told Mark that I hated the ball and it didn’t work for me, but I was wrong, I have thrown all three 300 games with this ball and I think I am going to stick with it”!

Scott and Carol Moerschbaecher recognized Krista’s natural talent for the game and as Krista says, “If it weren’t for my parents putting all their time, money, and support when I was a youth bowler, I would not be where I am today with my passion for bowling. It’s also due to the support from Art Leseberg, my bowling coach, my amazing sons Andrew 7 yr and TJ, 3 yr, who are certified youth bowlers and of course, my dear boyfriend. I hope to grow old with bowling and continue to reach my goals” .
