Like Tyler Perry previously, I’m noting a bowler from Massachusetts who did well on the national stage…
The USBC reported that Tom Hankey, a bowler out of Cove Lanes in Great Barrington, MA, was the champion of the under-15 boys division of this year’s Junior Gold tournament in Chicago. Tom led the division after qualifying and the advancers rounds, winning his first two rounds of match play before losing to Jalen Mosley. After another match, Tom turned the tables on Jalen, then defeated Jorge Rodriguez 445-387 in the title match, which will air on CBS Sports Network on Aug. 11 at 10 PM Eastern time. Tom also earned a spot on the Junior Team USA developmental team.
Prior to Junior Gold, Tom also did well in the Youth Open at Orland Bowl, currently leading the U15 scratch team (with Jersey Boys and Tom) and boys all-events titles, with Tom relating on Facebook that the bowled a 300 game in the team event.
Congratulations to Tom, and I’ll also send along my wishes for continued success. 🙂
