Florida and Pennsylvania seniors make up the top two Wii seniors care bowling teams in the United States, according to officials of the nation's only Wii golfing and bowling national championships for seniors. They identified 40 top teams, which come from 16 states, late last week.

The nation's top teams are the SAS Strikers, of St. Andrews Estates South, in Boca Raton, FL, and The Fairhope Superstars, of Center on the Hill in Belle Vernon, PA, according to the National Seniors League, a group that produces National Wii Bowl and Wii Golf Championships. Joe Riccobene, the 77-year-old captain of the SAS Strikers, was named NSL Wii Bowler of the Year.  He has thrown 27 perfect games and led the Strikers to three straight national championships. Most recently, SAS Strikers team members averaged 266 a game, compared to the national average of 167.

Criteria for determining the Top 40 included taking the scoring average of the top four Wii bowlers on each team, using a minimum of five sanctioned matches bowled in the NSL's 2010 Spring and Fall Championships. Nearly 250 teams from 27 states participated in seven weeks of league play and three weeks of playoffs.
