ARLINGTON, Texas - Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., has been named the July 2010 Kegel Bowler of the Month by the Bowling Writers Association of America.
In a span of two weeks, Kent won the prestigious USBC Junior Gold Boys Division Championship presented by Brunswick, as well as the Boys Division in the fifth annual North Pointe Insurance Group $100,000 High School Open Singles Classic.
An upcoming senior this fall at West Valley High School, Kent earned an impressive $25,000 in scholarship winnings from the two tournaments: $10,000 from the Junior Gold win and $15,000 from the North Pointe Insurance victory.
The more dramatic of the two wins was in the USBC Junior Gold as the 17 year-old Kent struck out in the tenth frame of the tournament's final game, shutting out Matthew Gasn, Laurel, Maryland, 269-265.
Others capturing votes were Brittni Hamilton, the USBC Junior Gold Girls Division Championship winner, Czech Open winner Brian Voss and Chris Loschetter, winner of the European Bowling Tour 6th Storm San Marino Open.
