Last week (Feb. 1) in the Seniors youth league, Chris Zalewski (206 avg.) put up a high 288 game in a 767 set. Those scores would have been good enough for me to post as adult scores. Nice bowling Chris! 🙂
I often forget to peek in on the travel league, but Ethan Reyes brought to my attention that he shot 289/791 Sunday at Westgate, and I also found in the high scores that Craig Souza of Wonder Bowl had a 270 game and Janie Hillman of North Bowl a 267 game. Nice bowling everyone! 🙂
Great bowling last week in the Senior youth league by Ashley Major, with a 245 game (168 avg.), and Aiden Delehoy, with a 236 game (171 avg.). WTG! 🙂

Per the post above, Westgate bowler Chris Zalewski was one of the division winners of the second annual Bristol-Plymouth USBC Youth Championships, which were held last Sunday at North Bowl Lanes. Other Westgate bowlers winning scholarships were Brenda Murphy, Aiden Delehoy, Jessica Blyth, and Corey Major (who finished second to Zalewski in the 181 & over division). Good bowling!
Found out about this late, but here are the results of the Adult/Junior doubles tournament on Nov. 23:
- Ethan Reyes & Sean Richard 1,409
- Chris Zalewski & Brendan Litchfield 1,408
Good bowling! 🙂
Congrats to Ashley Major, who, per Sean Richard’s video posted on Facebook, nearly became the youngest girl with a 300 game at Westgate Lanes last night in the Adult/Junior league with a 287. Ashley is the older sister of Corey Major, who became the youngest with a 300 on the first night of the league.
Sarah Gill is currently the youngest girl with a 300 at Westgate.
Congratulations to Corey Major, who bowled his first 300 game tonight in the Adult/Junior league. As I was able to confirm with Rose Hamilton, Corey, at age 14, is now the youngest bowler with a 300 game at Westgate Lanes, pending formal USBC certification.
Sean Richard sent me the video below:
Congratulations to Rose Hamilton, who was presented with the 2019 Michael Z. Eramo Coach of the Year Award last weekend at the youth state tournament. It’s a well-deserved honor. 🙂
Note: The post above also has links to the unofficial tournament results. I will post about results again when they become official.
Above is the list of state youth award winners for the 2017-18 season from the BPUSBC centers, as they were presented at the state youth tournament in Pittsfield. Blanket congratulations to all.
The former Westgate Memorial Scholarship Tournament is now running under the Special Award brand, but still awards scholarships. It was held Saturday, and, with eight entries, one $500 scholarship was awarded, to Alex Nicol, who shot 724 with handicap. Matt Hochberg was second, with a 716 score.
According to the final scholarship list (PDF format) posted by the Mass. USBC youth committee, Westgate bowlers Ethan Reyes and Corey Major won their respective divisions of the state Pepsi tournament, held last Sunday at AMF Somerset Lanes. Along with their scholarships, the two have earned the right to compete at the Junior Gold Championships this summer in Detroit.
Rose Hamilton has released to me the results of Saturday’s honor squad (PDF format). The list of winners below will include the home center. Scores are with handicap except for scratch division.

With the state associations now merged, this post is different from previous years.
- The open and women’s state tournaments will run concurrently on weekends from Apr. 20 to May 12 at AMF Auburn Lanes. Entry forms for both are available on the state association website, with the open tournament under “Men” and the women’s tournament under “Women”. Mail-in entries close Apr. 1, although walk-in entries are accepted based on lane availability on a cash-only basis.
- The youth tournament will be Apr. 27-28 and May 4-5 at Ken’s Bowl in Pittsfield. More information is available on the MAUSBC youth committee website.
I didn’t think there were any high scores on Saturday morning last season, but there will be at least one this season, as I saw Rose Hamilton post on her Facebook that Ethan Reyes had his first 300 this morning. WTG Ethan! 🙂
Per Rose Hamilton’s Facebook post, the results of today’s Adult/Junior doubles tournament (scores are with handicap):
- Glenn Rucker & Ken Gerraughty 1,314
- Corey & Stephen Major 1,444
- Emily & Kenny Lei 1,379
Congrats to all! 🙂
The first Adult/Junior doubles tournament of the season was held today, with the results below (scores are with handicap):
Senior: Chris Zalewski & Jake Tobin (1,332)

Special congrats to Corey Major for stringing the first 10 in the third game before leaving the almighty 7 (lefty) for a 289.
Congrats to all! 🙂
I was alerted by Rose Hamilton to a 300 game bowled by Eldon Dunbar out of Auburn in the travel league at Westgate Sunday. WTG! 🙂
Although they haven’t been marked as such on the Mass. youth association website, results from the state tournament at Westgate Lanes are presumably official in the PDF linked here. As usual, I will note Westgate’s state champions below:
Team, 641-720, scratch: Glenn Rucker (with Megan Richardson, Megan Ku, and Nate Purches from Town & Country) 2,240
Singles, 61-80, scratch: Antonio Inniss 341
Congratulations to everyone! 🙂
Chris Zalewski had the high game of the season on Saturday morning this season (289), but picked the doubles event of the youth state tournament today at Westgate to bowl his first 300 game. Ken Gerraughty provided me with a copy of the video, which I uploaded to the (new) association page and appears below:
Nice bowling! 🙂
