Local high schooler Ben Anderson is taking part in a bowling championship to earn a $10,000 scholorship.
The roster of competitors for the inaugural Denny’s All-American High School Championships is now complete with today’s announcement by tournament sponsors of an elite group of 29 senior student-athletes chosen to compete in the March event. Denny’s, the Professional Bowlers Association and the United States Bowling Congress made their final selections of the participants based on bowling accomplishments, academics and other criteria.
The Denny’s All-American High School Championships is being held in conjunction with the Denny’s PBA World Championship, March 24-25 in Grand Rapids, Mich. Immediately following the conclusion of the Denny’s World Championship, the high school finalists will take to the lanes to compete for $10,000 in scholarships on a PBA oil pattern and in an arena setting before more than 2,000 spectators.
Two of the 29 are from Tennessee.
……Maia, 17, of Mt. Juliet, will compete with 14 other girls from across the country in a tournament that, if won, will give her a $10,000 scholarship. She’ll be among 29 boys and girls — and one of two Tennesseans — to bowl in the March 24-25 Denny’s All-American High School Championships, a national competition that will feature a varsity high school bowling tournament for the first time this year, organizers said.
The other teen representing Tennessee is Ben Anderson, 17, a senior at Smyrna High School.
Wish him luck people.
