Articles and Press Releases

Marianne DiRupo finds way to give back to bowling
Joan Taylor
Daily Record (NJ)
"Marianne is a Health and Physical Education teacher at Jefferson High School where she spearheaded a bowling program. She has been there since 2006 and currently has four sophomores and one junior on the varsity team. They finished sixth in the state, which was “very rewarding for such a team."

ASU bowlers spares no effort while aiming for NCAA championship
Tim Gayle
Montgomery Advertiser

“The progression to a nationally recognized program is still a work in progress, but Chatmon took steps by adding assistant coaches Rick Wilson and Michael Williams. Williams, who bowls regionally on the PBA Tour, works in the pro shop at Brunswick Lanes, where the Hornets practice, and makes sure the bowlers have the right equipment. Wilson, a former bowler at Wichita State, works with the athletes on the mental approach to the game."
Changes in store for regional bowling events
Chuck Pezzano
Tuscaloosa News

"Each section would host at least three non-championship matches called challenge events. They would be open, at lower entry fees, to both PBA members and non-members who never have won a PBA event. Based on the popularity of one-day, reduced-entry-fee events, which previously were attempted to help reduce travel expenses for bowlers, this year each region will offer one-day contests based on the region's options."

Girl bowls 300 game, becoming the youngest person in United States to accomplish the feat
Brad Davis
WFTS Tampa

“Hannah now holds the record as the youngest person to bowl a 300 in the United States. The United States Bowling Congress has certified the game and sent Hannah a congratulatory letter. "I still feel like I'm dreaming. It's like, pinch me," Hannah smiled. "

Lightning Strikes acquired by Bowl New England; will change name, undergo renovations
Gary Lloyd
Trussville Tribune
“Corley said the bowling alley has been renamed Spare Time Entertainment and will undergo a two-phase renovation. The first phase includes removing eight lanes to add a two-level laser tag arena and adding a 50- to 75-piece arcade room with a redemption prize store. Corley said that phase is in the permit process and will take about three months to complete."

Calera's Angela Nance avoids 'getting hung,' sets women's state bowling series record
Solomon Crenshaw
Birmingham News

"You can't be tense and nervous or you can't repeat the same shot over and over," she said. "I had to remind myself to take a deep breath, just do the one ball at a time. I had a great team that was there to support me. We talked about other things to try not to focus on that the whole night long until that was over."

Hoover's Paul Ealy sets state bowling series record of 896 at Birmingham's Brunswick Riverview Lanes
Solomon Crenshaw Jr
Birmingham News

"But the one that got away may have helped him bag the big one - the state-record 896 series he rolled Monday in the Bud Light Classic league at Brunswick Riverview Lanes."
Paul Ealy has competed in four PBA Tour events, including the two held at Birmingham's Lightning Strikes Lanes. He has no plans of becoming a touring professional.
