Central Kenai Peninsula bowlers claimed a pair of titles and $1,000 each in scholarship money at the recent Alaska YBC Pepsi Championships held at North Bowl in Wasilla.
The area youth bowling association had 12 bowlers participate in the tournament, competing in three different divisions. They bowled six games on the Sydney short oil pattern on the first day of the tournament, and the top half of the field advanced to Thursday’s competition.
Of the 12 local bowlers, half of them made the cut. They were Nicholas Wehrstein, Marcus Yamada, Gavin Petterson, Morgan Bilyeu, Tori Askin and Mason Yamada.
The bowlers rolled three more games on the Paris long oil pattern. From there Marcus Yamada advanced in the U15 – Boys division and Mason Yamada advanced in the U-20 – Boys division. Both went through the step ladder and claimed the top honors.
The annual tournament distributed $14,000 to Alaska Youth Bowlers at this years event.
