Here it is, my last column of the season. It has been another eventful year in the bowling world. There have been ups and downs, high scores and low scores, and some successful moments and some not so successful moments.
For myself, personally, there were more ups than downs. As always, this was another season of memories made. Good friends, good times and stories to share. I have enjoyed reporting for you the goings on in the world that we have chosen for ourselves.
From the youth, to the adults and to the seniors, male, female and mixed leagues, it has been a whirlwind of information. Whatever news that I overlooked or that I neglected to mention I apologize.
There are still many happenings in the sport of bowling throughout the summer. Starting with the summer leagues. They are now forming and getting ready to kick off their short sessions within the next few weeks. Make sure to check out all the leagues, because I am sure that there is one to fit into your schedule.
Also, the Best of the Best Tournament is this Sunday at Cooper’s Sport Bowl. Start time is 11 a.m., so make sure to get there early for registration. Remember, any male that has had a 700 series and female with a 600 series this season is eligible to compete. There is no entry fee for these bowlers.
The middle school bowling semi-state will be held on Saturday at Cooper’s also. Camryn Hickey finished in first place in regional last week, with Caitlyn Hickey in second place. Congratulations! Come support all of the qualifiers.
The Youth State Tournament has come to an end. After three months of weekend trips to Terre Haute the results are official. The team consisting of local bowlers Austin Mefford, Brady Colip, Charlie Colip and Zach Weidman have finished in first place for Division One. Three of the four boys will be making the transition into the adult world of bowling next season. What a great way to finish off your youth career.
