Angie Colip: Youth bowlers celebrate big weekend

Our local youth bowlers made a strong statement this past weekend, taking home nine of 35 places in this month’s TKO Tournament. Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne played host to 148 youth bowlers Sunday.

In division 0, Steven Pursley finished in second while Matt Robey placed fifth. Division 2 produced a first-place finish by Charlie Colip. In division 3, Payton Harrington took home the top honor with Sam Mikesell placing second. Jaxon Fetty placed fourth in division 4. Locals took the top three places in division 5 with Bryce Wright placing first, Shayla Gwynn in second and Ryan McIntyre in third.

If this is any indication, the future looks bright for this area’s bowlers. Congratulations to all the bowlers.

The high game of the day was shot by Charlie Colip with a 298. The tradition continues as Colip is beginning to follow in his dad and older brother’s footsteps. At the age of 13, Colip rolled 11 strikes in a row in the third game of the first set.

After the 11th ball hit the pocket for a strike, he heard the applause and as he turned from the foul line all he saw was a wall of people applauding. He quickly turned around to the lanes to await his final shot. With legs of jello and a small shake in his hands, his focus was on the next shot. Colip got a little quick and hit the pocket light leaving the 5 and 7 pin to give himself his highest game ever.

Colip finished the set with a 701 series starting out with games of 192 and 211. After shooting a 580 second set, Colip qualified fourth for the step ladder finals winning his way to the championship. He beat his opponents with games of 166, 221, 246 and 201.

It was a great day of bowling for the Colip family. Charlie is emerging as a good bowler in his own right and proving that he can compete with the other male members of our household. This mom is very excited that I am now able to write about my youngest son as I have been able my oldest. I am definitely not the bowler in the family, but I can report on it. It is a plus that I am able to include my family in my column.
