Angie Colip: Weekend packed with bowling events for all

This weekend is jam packed with bowling events. Today and Sunday provides the opportunity to see a live professional bowling tournament.

Last weekend’s qualifier saw three local bowlers earn the opportunity to test their skills against the best of the best.

Congratulations to Austin Mefford, Tim Jarvis and Kevin Shafer. These men had the top three scores of the PBA Qualifier last weekend at Cooper’s. They have earned a spot to compete in this weekend’s PBA Central Regional Tournament.

Bowling on the Scorpion Sport Pattern, Mefford won the event with a 619 series. Shafer shot a 617 and Jarvis shot a 598 to advance.

Competing against professional bowlers is an opportunity that only a few amateurs can claim. These three men will get just that chance on Saturday. The tournament begins at 2 p.m. at Cooper’s Sport Bowl.

The top 16 scores of the day will advance to the finals on Sunday, beginning at 10 a.m. Come out and cheer on these locals and your favorite professional.

This week produced four perfect games.

Lucky Strike in Elwood witnessed three of those. Brandon Hartman rolled a 300 game and finished the night off with a 749 series. Ron Boyland’s 300 came with a 741 series. Sammy McPhearson also shot that elusive 300 game this week.

Jason McCord shot his perfect game in the Charlie Cooper Memorial at Cooper’s and finished his night off with a 749 series.

Also this weekend is a free coaches clinic sponsored by the Indiana Bowling Proprietors Association.

On Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Cooper’s will play host to a one day clinic for all high school and middle school coaches. Steve Kunkle, the president of the state’s youth association, will conduct the event.

Special guest speaker and pro bowler Brad Angelo will also be there to give tips on coaching. Angelo will be giving demonstrations on and off the lanes.

This Tuesday is the start of the high school bowling season.

Anderson High, Pendleton Heights and Anderson Preparatory Academy will begin bi-weekly practices at 4 p.m. at Cooper’s.

Both boys and girls are encouraged to take advantage of this sport where no one sits the bench. All members get the opportunity to bowl.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Corner - HB Colts Notes: Thomas, Hilton hurt in Wednesday's practice After a physical practice Wednesday afternoon at Anderson University, the Indianapolis Colts are hoping they have not lost another starter. Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
