Last weekend the Butte youth bowlers took to the lanes to compete in the 16th Annual USBC Youth City Championships at Star Lanes. This year featured a total of 73 youth competitors over all the divisions. The Handicapped All Events winners in each division received a scholarship again this year. Every youth that bowled in an event was entered into a random drawing that gave them the opportunity to win a participation scholarship.
Kayden Dziak was the high scorer of the tournament winning the scratch all events title. On his run to the title he out averaged the field by 101 pins. He knocked down 1,859 pins over nine games (206 average). Along the way to the all events title he rolled the high series of the tournament with a 646, and he had the boy’s high game of 251. Lexxy Danielson rolled the girl’s high game of 200, and the girl’s high series of 544.
The Jack Tresidder Participation $50 Scholarship winners were Angelina Hocking for girls and Kale Gibson for boys.
