The 14th Annual Michigan Junior Master Association Sport Challenge rolled into Sunnybrook Lanes in Sterling Heights, Michigan. This year was no exception to the challenging lane condition for this tournament. This year was a blast from the past pattern. The 50 foot Dexter Tournament of Champions from the 2004-05 season. Spare making was at a premium with the entire girls field averaged 168 and boys 174 during the weekend.
Forty-five teams competed for their chance at the 20th annual the Michigan Junior Masters Association’s Junior Doubles for the banner plus scholarship opportunity which was held at Cherry Hill Lanes North the weekend of October 4th and 5th.
Once again it is Savory Cookie Dough time. This once a year fundraiser not only allows us the opportunity to have more scholarship money available for you to bowl for but also gives your family and friends a chance to enjoy some very tasty cookies for the upcoming holiday season. Orders will be collected at the event in Clarkston on October 4th and the delivery will be in Lansing at the Adult – Junior event on November 15th.
The 27th Annual Michigan Junior Master Association Jackson Classic rolled into Airport Lanes in Jackson, Michigan on September 13‐14, 2014. Sue Hines, Andy Schnebelt and the whole team at Airport Lanes play great hosts every year and this year was no exception. The challenging 46 foot pattern kept a number of our members off balance but as always, a number of them found the right target zone and made enough spares in between to make the match play part of the event.
Antar Howard (Kalamazoo, MI) and Samantha Gainor (Chesterfield, MI) captured their very first Michigan Junior Masters Association title at Plaza Lanes in Plymouth, Michigan during our second event of the season the weekend of August 23rd and 24th. Jerry Johnson and the whole staff at Plaza Lanes once again proved to very gracious hosts and the 39 foot flat oil pattern which had many of the bowlers guessing throughout the weekend how to play the lanes.
In the kick-off event for the 29th Michigan Junior Masters Association season, we reached another milestone in the great history of the organization by having a “perfect” ending to the tournament. We are able to finally crown our 300th winner in 29 years which was Sam Brandt (Fremont, MI) who defeated Vincent Papais (Sterling Heights, MI) 441-414 and then we had Jordan Richard (Tecumseh, MI) win her 12th title of her career by defeating Sydney Brummett (Fort Wayne, IN) 428–377.
