CONGRATULATIONS Cloverleaf Strikers for winning the U12 Division at the USA Bowling National Finals in Cleveland, OH!
The Pacific Southwest squad, all from California, includes Joey Irvin, Diego Jara, Nihal Mareedu and Harley Shene. “Last year, we were very fortunate to make the U15 show and come away with a championship, and we’re excited to be back on TV and try to win one with our U12 team,” Ellen Johnson said. “Bryant and Jacob made TV, too, and although they didn’t win, they’re looking forward to another chance and using that experience to help the team succeed this year.”
The 2017 USA Bowling National Championships started with 32 teams – 16 in the 12-and-under division and 16 in the 15-and-under division – which bowled five and six one-game Baker matches, respectively, Wednesday at Yorktown Lanes, with their win-loss records determining the seeding for their respective double-elimination match-play brackets Thursday.
