One of the popular youth tournaments is the annual Pepsi Youth Championships.
It begins with qualifying in league, with the top bowlers advancing to the sectional and state finals.
Al-Mar Lanes will hold its first round of qualifiers on Oct. 19 and Oct. 26 during league competition.
The age brackets for the Pepsi event are slightly different than the United States Bowling Congress classifications.
The U8 division is for those whose birthday was Aug. 1, 2005 or after. Those born Aug. 1, 2003 through July 31, 2005, will compete in the U10 division. Boys and girls born between Aug. 1, 2001 to July 31, 2003 will compete in the U12 division. The U15 division is for those born between Aug. 1, 1998 and July 31, 2001. The oldest division, U20 is for bowlers born Aug. 1, 1993 and July 31, 1998.
Scholarship money is awarded to the top bowlers at the state and sectional levels. In addition, the champions in the three oldest divisions earn an entry into the USBC 2014 North Pointe Junior Gold Championships in Buffalo, N.Y. in July.
USBC awards: Larry Long Jr. said of his various 300 games, he was most excited, nervous and proud of the one rolled in the Sentinel Classic at Al-Mar on Sept. 23.
Although not officially a ‚Äúsport‚ÄĚ condition, the league uses more challenging lane conditions than other regular leagues. One of the reasons for both the nerves and the excitement is the 300 earned him a $1,000 bonus. The league pays the bonus for both the first 300 game and 800 series in the league each season.
League ‚Äôlites: 13-year-old Cailyn Overhulse rolled the first 600 series of her career in the Rally‚Äôs Junior All Stars on Sept. 21. She had games of 236 and 203 in her 617 series.
Kyle Waynick, bowling in the Bobcat 2 a Days League on Sept. 21, rolled a 276 and a pair of 245 games for a 723 set.
Match 3 winner: After a long string of months without a winner, Pancha Melendrez was the Sept. 23 winner of the Match 3 Jackpot at Al-Mar Lanes.
Youth of the Week: Youth bowlers who bowled the most pins over their average in any one game last week, with pins over, were: Sept. 19: Alex Bookenberger and Nico Calderon, both 51; Zachary Kolkemeyer, 40; Overhulse and Charlotte Perez, both 60; and Kelly Miller, 21; Sept. 28: Justin Gentry, 97; Mark Kolczynski, 40;¬† Perez, 49; Erin Spangenberg, 38.
Aktion benefit: The Aktion Club of Wood Lane Services, will hold a ‚ÄúBowl-a-Mania‚ÄĚ event Oct. 12 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Al-Mar Lanes. Entry fee is $20 per person and includes two games of bowling, shoes, a cup, raffles and food. Additional details are available at Wood Lane or Al-Mar.
