Bowling season winding down for 2013

A new year is only a few short days away. As 2013 is winding down, I would like to reflect on this past year and look forward to 2014.

As we are all well aware, I am not the bowler in the family. As much as I love the sport of bowling, I take more joy in my children’s accomplishments than I do my own. I suppose that if I had more of my own I would enjoy those also. But, as a parent I can’t imagine putting myself first.

Brady had an extremely good year in his bowling career. He qualified as one of only 16 spots in the Collegiate National Championships as an individual. In the Youth State Tournament he finished first in all events and team, and brought home fourth place in doubles and singles. He also rolled his first 300 game in this tournament.

He made the Indiana Masters team and qualified with the high game and high series. Brady rolled 11 strikes in a row on a sports shot to finish with a 296. He finished fourth in the tournament. In the Indiana/Kentucky All Star tournament, he finished fourth and had high team game and the individual high game and series. Indiana won the contest for both Masters and Queens.

This summer, Colip travelled to Detroit for the Junior Gold Championships to compete against the best from around the country.

Charlie had his own share of success this year. He placed fifth place in points in the TKO tournament. He shot his best game ever with eleven strikes in a row for a 298 game. He shot his first sanctioned 700 series. He has raised his average by more than 20 pins and at only 13 is becoming a strong force in youth bowling.

This year was a great one for our family in the bowling world. We travelled a lot and watched many hours of great bowling at different levels and in different venues. We celebrated victories and we learned lessons in the defeats.

  • SPT - HB0320 - Teverbaugh mug Rick Teverbaugh: Already time to scrap baseball replay The new replay system being used by Major League Baseball is an abject failure and should be scrapped immediately.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
