Zavjalova nearly put on a perfect performance in the semifinals, starting with the first 10 strikes before leaving a 10 pin in her victory over Nebraska's Elise Bolton, 289-153. In the finals, the strikes kept coming for Zavjalova as she fired the last 11 strikes to claim the title over Roumimper.

The Webber International senior was inspired by her teammates after a disappointing showing at the XBowling Intercollegiate Team Championships.

"Two days ago I was very disappointed because we struggled as a team," said Zavjalova, who was part of Webber International's championship team in 2012. "That motivated me to bowl well here. I wanted to win for my team, because I knew they were behind me all the way. I heard them cheering after every shot. It was a great way to end my college career."

In advancing to the title match, Roumimper defeated her Wichita State teammate Heather Melvin, 203-184, in the other semifinal.
