75th annual city championships

Hello bowlers! This is Jim Ephlin, at the Rushville Bowl, where all the action is.

This is certainly the week for action as we have the Rushville USBC BA Open Championships on the lanes from Feb. 15 - 23.

The tournament will have 27 teams, 54 doubles and 69 singles entered in the tourney. The participants play for cash prizes, but probably more important to most players, is the title as city tournament champion.

At the time of this article, only singles and doubles events have taken place. In fact, the Monday team event was cancelled for inclement weather and will go off this coming Monday.

In handicap doubles competition, at the end of the first squad Andrew Wainwright and Todd Howard have posted a tremendous score of 1,509. Craig Kuhn and Justin Howard are next with 1,384 followed by Paul Sutton and Butch Robinson with 1,368.

In actual doubles competition, at the end of the first squad Andrew and Todd have first with 1,393 followed by Justin Howard and Craig Kuhn with 1,368. In third place actual doubles after one squad is Robert Jacobs and Jim Huddleston with 1,231.

In singles, I have the results from the entire first weekend. In handicap singles, we have the following leaders 1.) Butch Robinson 774 2.) Crystal Jacobs 763 and 3.) Paul Koors 753. In actual singles after the first weekend, we see 1.) Justin Howard 733 2.) Jim Huddleston 712 and 3.) Jim Ephlin 681.

The Saturday morning Senior Youth Bowling League has finished for the season with a tie for first place. PB&J consisting of Kevin Nigh, Devin Tuley, Jackie Bell and Dalton Noah had the same record as Big & Happy which had J.T. Ephlin, Dylan Kennedy, Nick Hutchinson and Michael Dodge.

Both teams will be going to the state youth tournament in Terre Haute as their prize.

In other youth bowling, Haley Rains’ and J.T. Ephlin’s state tourney run came to an end in Richmond at the regional. J.T. needed a double in the 10th to advance to semistate, but the bowling gods said no.

We have approximately 15 bowlers going to the State Seniors tourney at Warsaw in early April. The bowlers have a squad date at 9 a.m. on April 6, so most are going the night before. Can you say party?

Next week I’ll have the results of the tourney and more bowling news.

See you next week!
