Brittni Hamilton, Marshall Kent Pat Crocitto 209-552 NA Youth Bowler of the Week
Crowned at Junior Gold North Arlington, NJ – Remembering to bring his own bowling ball this week, Pat Crocitto broke through
with 209-552, his best outing of the season, earning him this session’s Youth Bowler of the Week distinction.
Championships Pat’s strong showing was instrumental in his Bowling Bombers 5-2 victory over the Bacon Boys. Despite
dropping the match, the Bacon Boys moved into second place by salvaging the middle game. In other play,

Kent won the title by defeating Matthew Gasn of Laurel, Md., 269-265 in
the final game of match play. Kent finished with 10,018 for 46 games, includ-
ing a 10-6 record with 20 bonus pins for wins, while Gasn finished second
with 9,996 and a 9-7 record.
On the girls side, Hamilton ran away with the title, winning by nearly 250
pins with a total of 9,800 and a match-play record of 11-5. Addileen Pointer
of Highland, Mich., finished second with 9,553 and a 9-7 record.
In the final game, Kent stepped up first in the 10th frame and delivered
three clutch strikes to shut Gasn out by a single pin and win the title.
"This is overwhelming, and I can't even describe it," said Kent, a 17-year-
old who will be a senior at West Valley High school this fall. "On the last shot,
I saw the 7 pin stand up for a second and when it fell, it was the best feeling
in the world."
For Hamilton, it was the fifth time she's bowled Junior Gold and her last
attempt to win the title. She finished fourth last year and established herself
as the player to beat after Thursday's semifinals.
"It's amazing, and I don't really have words for it," said Hamilton, who will
represent Junior Team USA in Helsinki, Finland at the World Youth
Championships this later this month. "I knew it was my last year and my last
chance to win. This is a nice way to pretty much end my youth bowling
career."
The top four boys and top four girls in the final standings earned automatic
spots on Junior Team USA 2011. Joining Kent and Gasn on the boy’s side
was third-place finisher Chris Via of Springfield, Ohio, and fourth-place fin-
isher Jacob Kent of Newark, N.Y. (no relation to Marshall Kent).
When the final standings came out, Jacob Kent and Andrew Koff of Miami
were tied for fourth after 46 games. Kent defeated Koff, 177-167, in a one-
game roll-off for the automatic spot.
On the girl’s side, joining Hamilton and Pointer on Junior Team USA was
third-place finisher Kristie Petravich of West Palm Beach, Fla., and fourth-
place finisher Kaitlin Quinn of Livonia, N.Y.
The National Selection Committee selected Koff, Kyle King of Glendale,
Ariz., Danielle McEwan of Stony Point, N.Y., and Liz Seibel of Hellertown,
Pa., to join Junior Team USA. The final roster for Junior Team USA 2011
will be determined at the 2011 USBC Team USA Trials in January, where
spots for four girls and four boys will be up for grabs.
Earning the David Dahms Sportsmanship award at this year's Junior Gold
was Amanda Fry of Antelope, Calif., and Nathan Ricks of Plantation, Fla.
