Sutton named president of IBA

Hello bowling fans! This is Jim Ephlin from the Rushville Bowl, where all the action is. This column has made some major announcements over the years such as 1.) Mel Lieland retiring, 2.) Automatic scoring, and 3.) Non smoking, but none may be as big as today’s news. Last month at the Indiana USBC delegates meeting Paul Sutton was sworn in as President of the Indiana Bowling Association. As far as I know, Paul is the only Rushville bowler to be on the board, but as of Aug. 1 he takes control of one of the finest state associations in all of America. The association has a President, three Vice Presidents and nine District Directors to cover the bowling activities in the state of Indiana. Paul started out as a Jurisdictional Director of District 5 then became director and then moved through the Vice-Presidents chairs and now this is his year to be the leader of our Association. Paul will be on the road quite a bit visiting associations, traveling to meetings and watching over various committees. I did a little research and as far as I can tell Paul started his local bowling career in 1979 as a sub in the Industrial league with Craven`s Frozen Foods, bowling with Jim Joyce, Russ Goddard, Jim Owens, Damon Brett, Mike Eakins, Al Doll and Ted Koelmel. Paul averaged 169. I am thrilled to death for Paul and wish him Gods speed in performing his duties. Becky Fancher has put Rushville on the bowling map as well as she finished second in the nation in the recently completed Senior Championships. Becky was the state champion in last year’s state Senior tourney which gave her the opportunity to be in this years National Championships in Reno, Nev. She competed in the womens 70-74 division and bowled six games trying to finish in the top six to make the cut for the medal round. She bowled a 377 and a 423 the first two sets to put herself in second place thus making the cut. They bowled three more games with Becky rolling a 373 series and with handicap scored 2037, a 225 average to finish second. She only missed the National Championship by 67 pins which is about eight pins per game. Becky received a beautiful commemorative clock plus a runners up check for $ 600 and I`m sure quite a few great memories.
