ARLINGTON, Texas - Eight team championswere crowned this fall as the USA Bowling pro-gram held its first regional tournaments.USA Bowling, a team-based youth programoffered through the International BowlingCampus, held four USA Bowling RegionalTournaments and crowned team champions inUnder 15 and Under 12 divisions at each tour-nament.Under 12 champions were Nexgen All Stars of Staten Island, N.Y., 300 Club of Wichita, Kan.,Smyrna Elite of Smyrna, Tenn., and IrvineStrikers of Irvine, Calif.Hot Shots of Staten Island, N.Y., Red Apple of Bartlesville, Okla., Smyrna Elite of Smyrna,Tenn., and ACTS of Yuma, Ariz., earned U15titles.A total of 227 athletes from more than 11 states participated in the Regional Tournaments, heldat four sites: Rab's Country Lanes in StatenIsland, N.Y. (East); Northrock Lanes, Wichita,Kan. (Midwest); Vestavia Bowl, Birmingham,Ala. (South); and Irvine Lanes, Irvine, Calif.(West)This year's USA Bowling RegionalTournaments were the first step in the develop-ment of a premier event for youth team compe-tition. In 2014, USA Bowling will host eightRegional Tournaments and plans to host 16events in 2015. Advancers from each of the 16Regional Tournaments in 2015 will be invited tocompete in the first USA Bowling NationalChampionships in 2016."We are excited to develop this new avenue of competition for youth teams," said ChadMurphy, International Bowling CampusManaging Director of Youth Development."Most sports are positioned as an individual or team sport, where bowling provides both. Thisunique advantage can give bowling a leg upwhen competing for youth participation withother sports."This year, each two-day regional event offeredtwo divisions - for Under 12 (12 or younger as of July 31, 2013) and Under 15 (15 or younger asof July 31, 2013) teams - and each team wascomprised of four to six bowlers. The formatincluded both regular team games and match play utilizing the Baker format."We traveled six hours to compete in the event,"said Pamela Deveau, a USA Bowling parent."My daughter and her team had a wonderfultime. We'll definitely be back next year."USA Bowling is a mainstream competitionmodel that was initiated to introduce youngstersto bowling. It follows the same structure as other youth sports by placing children on a team, pro-viding each team with a coach and then havingregular practices along with weekly competi-tions.

ARLINGTON, Texas - HannahDiem of Seminole, Fla., becamethe youngest United StatesBowling Congress member to rolla certified 300 game last week when she ended her Youth/AdultFall league session at LibertyLanes in Largo, Fla., with 12 con-secutive strikes.At 9 years, 6 months and 19days, Hannah broke the previousoverall record of 10 years, 2months set by Chaz Dennis of Columbus, Ohio, in 2006 and shat-tered the girls' mark of 12 years, 4months set by Brandie Reamy of Farmington, Mich., also in 2006.Hannah started the night withgames of 204 and 226 beforerolling the perfect game to finishwith a 730 series, a personal best by 166 pins. Entering the night,her high game was 224 and her high set was 564."Going into the third game, Iknew what she needed for her first600 series, but then the strikesstarted to add up," said HeidiDiem, Hannah's mother. "It's likeevery shot she threw was rightthere. It was magical."Diem credits much of her daugh-ter's continuing improvement to thesupport and guidance of the older youth bowlers at Liberty Lanes andthe dedication of USBC Bronzecoach James Crouch, who runs theyouth program and the Youth/Adultleague. Hannah also spent timeover the summer at the KegelTraining Center in Lake Wales, Fla.In four years of certified compe-tition, Hannah has raised her aver-age to 162. She bowls in multipleleagues each week, practices oftenand bowls in tournaments on theweekend. In 2012, she won her singles division at the FloridaState Youth Tournament.After her second game Sundaynight, Hannah asked her mother when she thought she'd roll her first perfect game. The answer was, "next year.""I tried not to talk to her toomuch and distract her," HeidiDiem said. "I don't know how shecomposed herself. I've never thrown a 300 or been close, so Idon't know the pressure she feltwhen she was up there. Going intothe 10th frame, it's like she didn'twaiver at all. She just got up thereand nailed it."For Hannah, the accomplish-ment is a little bit overwhelming."At first, I wasn't that confident Icould do it, but as I got morestrikes, I felt like maybe it couldhappen," said Hannah, who uses a12-pound ball. "This just feelsamazing. It's so much excitement,and my brain is still trying to process it all."Hannah hopes to continueimproving with the help of her teammates and coaches, and her sights are set on potentially com- peting in the Bowling.com YouthOpen Championships and USBCJunior Gold Championships in theBuffalo, N.Y., area next summer.For now, she and her mother areenjoying the chance to bowltogether on Sunday nights."She certainly didn't get the bowling gene from me," Diemsaid. "I always joke that it skippedme, and she got double, but itmeans a lot that it's something wecan do together."
