The North Adams USBC Bowling Association has made results of the 2016 state tournament, recently concluded at Greylock Bowl & Golf, official, and the results can be found on their website (links to PDFs of event standings and prize list on linked page). As usual, I’ll recognize the state champions below (association represented in parentheses):
Handicap Team: Live Free or Die (Worcester County) 3,815
Scratch Team: The Bearded Beasts (North Adams) 3,583
Handicap Doubles: Jim Ferguson & Danny Khuu (Brockton) 1,639
Scratch Doubles: Buddy Wilt & Rob Young (Brockton) 1,499
Handicap Singles: Lou Rosa (Southeastern Mass.) 872
Scratch Singles: Danny Khuu (Brockton) 815
Handicap All-Events: Dan Morse (Brockton) 2,437
Scratch All-Events: Danny Khuu (Brockton) 2,347
Recognizing the team champions as individuals:
Live Free or Die: Dave Rice, Valerie Calberry, Eric Frost, John Bercier, Mike Klosin
The Bearded Beasts: Tom Mongeon, Josh Sweet, Rob Carter, Dave Rice, Scott Demarsico
As previously reported, Danny Khuu’s scratch all-events score is a new state tournament record.
If the Brockton bowlers who usually read this don’t know Dan Morse, he’s actually, as Mike Violette told me, a first-year North Bowl bowler who actually started in one of the leagues in Rhode Island and was convinced to join a league at North Bowl. Mike said Dan has really improved in his first year, already threatening honor score level at times.
Congrats to all!
