CYC AWARDS 2017 SCHOLARSHIP to JENNIFER LOREDO & MEGAN CARPENTER

JENNIFER LOREDO from Fresno is one of two recipients for this year’s award. Jennifer is a 3.5 GPA freshman attending Clovis West High School.  Her aspirations are to open her own business so a college education in business administration and management is a must. She is looking into Wichita State, Webber International, McKendree University, Stephen F. Austin, Vanderbilt University, and Nebraska State University – all bowling colleges of course! Julia has many youth bowling titles such as 2014 Diddy Watts Youth State Singles Challenge; 2016 Pepsi District #4 Finals; 2016 Pepsi State Finals U15 Girls and most recently the California State Singles Women’s 176 & above division (this was an adult event!). She hopes to one day be a part of the PWBA and an inspiration to the future of our sport. Her goals are to win a US Open title, a PWBA title and be on Team USA. Jennifer is also a Level I Certified coach.

MEGAN CARPENTER hails from San Diego and is currently a 3.6 GPA senior attending Torrey Pines High School.  Megan started bowling when she was 5 years old and has bowled in 9 local city tournaments, 7 Pepsi Championships, held office of President and Vice President in her youth league and has attended the State Convention as delegate once. She has been bowling for 12 years, has a 196 average and a high scratch series of 735.  Megan’s goal is to attend a university studying biology and bowl on a collegiate team. She wants to continue and get her Masters and teaching credential so that she can teach high school Biology. Megan says “No matter where I go to college and settle down to teach, I will continue the same activities I do now, including league bowling, serving on the board of the local USBC Association, and giving back to the youth through education and coaching.”

We have two great winners this year. We wish them both the best in their continued education and bowling achievements.

Any superstitions? I listen to a certain playlist before every tournament.

My goal for this year is to win a national championship. I came to WSU because I felt like I was coming into a great college atmosphere. The amazing bowling program was icing on the cake. 

The most interesting class I have taken at WSU is Public Speaking (COMM 111). 
My favorite professor at WSU is Jack Brand.
My favorite thing about Shocker Bowling is the structure of the program and the amount of alumni who care about the program.
My favorite thing about WSU is the atmosphere; the people here are so nice and there are many different activities to do on campus.


CYC AWARDS 2016 SCHOLARSHIP to JULIA FRIAS

JULIA FRIAS from Winnetka is our newest recipient of the California Youth State Scholarship for $500.  Julia is currently a senior in high school and has been bowling since the age of 7.  She started bowling at Mission Hills Bowl and then switched to Canoga Park Bowl, now called Winnetka Bowl since it was much closer to her home.

Julia has bowled in 10 city tournaments, 6 Pepsi tournaments, 4 state tournaments and 3 State Scratch tournaments/DW Challenge.  Last year she averaged 213 and has a high series of 739.

We congratulate Julia on her scholarship award and wish her much success in her future education and bowling endeavors.


CYC AWARDS TWO SCHOLARSHIPS for 2015

MIA SINGLETARY from San Francisco and WESLEY LOW, JR from Palmdale are this year's scholarship recipients.

Mia is a senior at Galileo High School and carries a 3.14 GPA. She has only been bowling league for 5 years and has improved extremely quickly already averaging 174 and has a high game of 279. Mia recently won the U20 Girls Division in the 2015 Pepsi State Finals earning a $905 scholarship and also won the Queens tournament at the 2015 Youth State Championships held this past summer at Earl Anthony's Dublin Bowl. Her team also won first place in their division.

Wesley Low, Jr is also a senior in high school and has been bowling league for 12 years (booking 244) in the Monday Family Fun at Brunswick Palmdale Vista Lanes. Wesley's bowling accomplishments are incredible for his age (eighteen 300 games) and has already won events at the local, state, national, international and even regionally in the PBA. We can't list all of the awards here, so we will amuse you with facts that you didn't know... he ran cross country for 1 year and competed in wrestling for 2 years in high school.

These are two great deserving youth bowlers that are headed to college this fall. We wish them the best of luck in keeping up with their studies and bowling at the same time!! 


CYC AWARDS $500 "BEST BOWLER COMES FROM CALIFORNIA" SCHOLARSHIP for 2015

Congratulations to JAMES KNAPP from North Hollywood for winning our first "Best Bowlers come from California" scholarship. The CYC created this award for the bowlers that are going to turn adult and head off to college. We are giving them a $500 scholarship plus a free entry in to the CA State Open Championships. We are hoping to help these young adults transition from youth bowling to adult bowling. James was a past Champion from the 2014 DW Challenge earning first place in the Boys Scratch division. He has participated in all of the CA State tournaments such as the Pepsi Championships, CA State Championships and State Scratch, which is now the Diddy Watts Youth State Singles Challenge (DW Challenge). James bowled league at many centers including Corbin Bowl, Pinz, Mission Hills Bowl, and Keystone Lanes. 

James is now attending Huntington University in Indiana, has joined their bowling team and is currently bowling in three leagues with the Fort Wayne USBC BA. James will also be back in town this summer so that he can bowl in his first CA State adult tournament at Forest Lanes this May. Congratulations James!


CYC AWARDS TWO $500 SCHOLARSHIPS for 2014

By Phyl Knoll

The California USBC Association's CALIFORNIA YOUTH COMMITTEE (CYC) runs the youth event portions of the state.  The committee consists of 18 members, 8 of whom serve on the USBC California Association.  This committee continues to service the youth bowlers of California by organizing the annual Youth State Championships, Diddy Watts State Singles Challenge, Adult Youth Scholarship Doubles Tournament and the Pepsi Youth Championships as well as many youth awards and scholarships. Applicants must be youth members of the California USBC Association.  Scholarships may be awarded each year, but not necessarily every year and will be awarded only once to a recipient. Points are graded for both academic and bowling participation. 

After much review of the applicants for our 2014 $500 Scholarship, the committee has selected two youth bowlers who met our expectations in their qualifications for this award.  In the female category, MORGAN E. CUNNEEN of Vista, is a 17-year old certified youth league member at AMF Eagle Lanes, in San Marcos.  Over a four year span, Cunneen has maintained a 100% participation in league attendance. She has participated in Local and State Championship Tournaments, is a Local Association Officer/Director; a member of her Local Association Youth Leader/Youth Committee; and during the six years of league play, an Officer/Director; as well as a Youth Leader at the League Level. Over the past three years Cunneen has managed to increase her skills to average 148;  recording high games/series 201/507, 203/515, and 213/520.

Cunneen who lived in Germany and speaks fluent German is in her senior year at Mission Vista High School in Oceanside.  She is considered by her Instructors as a model student in that she is self-disciplined, articulate, has strong character and shows great maturity in being polite, and treats classmates with respect. She in turn, is afforded respect.  To date, she earns straight A’s, in all her classes; maintains a GPA of 4.40; and is ranked 4th in her class of 260 students.  Cunneen has been a member of the California Scholarship Federation since 2012, a member of the Mission Vista High School Key Club and Interact Club and off campus activities include Aegs Living/Dance at Shadowridge, Vista Library Service Learner and Rotary Club/YMCA Annual Holiday Dinner.   Cunneen is currently taking Advanced Placement Environmental Science classes to familiarize herself with the content of that area of study in two of the two universities she has her eye on… UC Berkeley and UC Davis.  

In the male category, CHARLES J. SANDFER, age 19 of Twentynine Palms is a graduate from Twentynine Palms High School where he was highly regarded by his teachers.  Sandfer was one of the original students in the school’s AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program, where he was training to become a Tutor. He expressed his willingness to work in groups and did it with a good predisposition making sure to take care of his responsibilities within the group at all times.  During his four years at T.P.H.S., Sandfer participated as a member of the Interact Club, a community-based club.  In his Senior Year, because of his high intellectual ability and responsible attitude, Sandfer began working as a Tutor for the Avid Class, where he always excelled by being firm and patient with the AVID students, showing his willingness to help them in any way possible.  Following his graduation from T.P.H.S. in 2012, Sandfer enrolled in Copper Mountain College in Joshua Tree and seeks his degree in General Education.  Although he continued to tutor for the AVID program, on a paid basis, Sandfer has maintained excellent grades.  He reached the highest academic honor at C.M.C.  making the President’s List in (Fall) 2012;  (Spring) 2013 and Honor’s List (Fall) 2013.

Sandfer is a certified USBC youth member of the Citrus Belt USBC Association and has for 12 years participated in the youth program at Bowlium Lanes in Montclair. He is a 167 average bowler, recording a 610 high series; has bowled three State Championship Tournaments and twelve Local Association Championship Tournaments and from 2009 through 2012 maintained a 100% attendance record at league play.  

In spite of all these accomplishments at the same time, Sandfer continues his volunteer service to the Breaking Bread Ministry (Feed The Hungry) and assists in the Pioneer Days Parade lineup.
