What's happening

There will be a regional qualifier in the ABC Teen Masters at New Great Valley Lanes, Saturday. The scratch singles competition, sanctioned by YABA, is open to youth bowlers who won't turn 19 until May 31, 2004. The entry fee for each of the 16 qualifiers is $89 if paid in advance and $99 at the site. Each bowler will roll six games with the top two finishers earning a berth in the championship finals at Olympic Lanes in Milwaukee, May 28-31. The players will be competing for scholarship money at the regionals and the finals.

The Post-Gazette plans to start running the bowling column on a weekly basis starting in December, when all the leagues get rolling. Until then, it will appear bi-weekly. The top scores from the district will run every Wednesday. To qualify, scored must be 250/650 for men, 200/600 for women and 200/600 for juniors and seniors. The column is looking for the people behind the scores. If you have news, call Phil Axelrod at 412-263-1103 or e-mail him .
