More than two dozen youth bowlers from Al-Mar have advanced to the state finals of the annual Pepsi tournament, with nearly half of those earning scholarship money, including championships in their division by Alisha Noon and Cailyn Overhulse.
At the district tournament, Noon won the girls 15-and-under division with her 615 series, rolling games of 212, 200 and 203. She earned a $100 scholarship. In the same division Gabriella Calderon rolled a 600 series for third place and a $50 scholarship. She began with a 252 game and finished with a 200. Kelsey Parker finished fifth in that division, earning a $25 scholarship for her 581 including a high game of 202.
Overhulse won the girls 12-and-under division with her 555 series to earn a $75 scholarship. She had a high game of 214, along with a 179 and 162. Sofia Calderon was second in that division with her games of 174 and 178 for a 500 series. She earned a $50 scholarship. Khloey Hutton finished eighth in the division at 430 earning a $25 scholarship.
Other girls to advance from the division included Erin Spangenberg with 421 in 12th place; Jena Kirian at 500 in 15th; Quinn Beeker in 16th at 398; and Charlotte Perez, 34th at 340.
Linda Alfaro finished third in the girls 8-and-under division rolled games of 136 and 114 in her 345 set to earn a $25 scholarship.
Eclipse Stockwell advanced for her 17th place finish in the girls 20-and-under division with her 499 series.
Thomas Rieman finished second in the boys 8-and-under division, earning a $25 scholarship for his 366 series including high games of 124 and 141. Also advancing in the division was Nico Calderon in ninth place at 322.
Jerrad Main advanced from the boys 6-and-under division with his 222 series which placed him fifth.
Three local boys each earned $25 scholarships in the boys 12-and-under division. Wyatt DeWitt finish sixth at 535, with high games of 191 and 176; Blayne Keller was 11th with his 189 game for 491; and Alex Bookenberger finished 14th with a 472 set. Also advancing in the division were Adam Iler, 31st place at 421; Brendon Kolkemeyer in 33rd at 412; James Alfaro, 46th, 380; and Dawson Wohler, 59th, 358.
Kyle Waynick placed ninth in the boys 20-and-under division with games of 227 and 235 in his 643 series to earn a $25 scholarship. Brian LeGalley also advanced in that division with his 208 for 593, good for 24th place.
Jacob Spangenberg rolled a 204 game in his 565; while Chase Ferguson notched 191and 196 for 555 to advance in the boys 15-and-under division.
In addition two bowers were placed in the wrong division. Pepsi officials have not been reached to verify how they will handle this situation. Should those bowlers and scores be placed in their proper division, both Logan Keller with a 320 series for boys 8-and-under, and Destiny Garner with 383 in the girls 12-and-under could possibly be able to advance once corrections have been made.
The state finals are set for weekends May 10-19 at Columbus Square Bowling Palace, Columbus.
Youth of the Week: Youth bowlers who bowled the most pins over their average in any one game last week, with pins over, were: Alex Bookenberger, 84; Tyler Noon, 65; Linda Alfaro, 62; Kayla Serres, 47.
Surviving the game: The six bowlers eliminated in Week 21 of Al-Mar's "Surviving the Game" with pins under average were: Teresa Lambert, Stadium View, 43; Bob Vanscoder, American, 48; Charles Easton, Sentinel Classic, 58; Vicky Chandler, Ladies Major, 65; Sussie Gamby, Ladies Major, 69; Todd Buehrer, Randy Miller Memorial, 74. Each of these bowlers who finished 25th through 30th, respectively, earned $5 for their placement.
