I played JV vball my freshman and sophmore year in high school, starting setter, woot. I quit last year though.

Wow, you can't even make it on Varsity in a girls sport......... :-b


Haha yea sad, I might have been able to make it, I didnt even try out becuase the team was full of @$$es...

I also don't really consider it a girls sport, I think a lot of the hitters are way more powerful than you think...

Swimming. Looking into some Division I schools on some scholarship money. I was top 16 in the USA in my age group for a few relays in the past couple years.

Football, Baseball, and Social Golf in High School

Baseball in College, Social Golf

Now I just play Softball and got my golf handicap down to a 12 which I am very happy with.

I also bowled in college but I don't like to brag about that much :-D

Up until the last year or so, the money in the amateur ranks has been better than the pros while having less expense to earn the money and easier competition. Injuries have also hindered my progress the last few years. Not sure if I'll be giving the tour a shot or not. Probably at least a year away from making a solid run at it if I choose to do so. We'll see.

As to other sports, high school baseball, basketball, track, and tennis. Didn't go any higher than high school with any of them. Was supposed to do tennis in college, but I didn't wind up going to college.


Good to see I am not the only bowler here!

Where you from Madison?

I still play basketball in leagues and would like to join a softball league. Used to play pickup hockey, but it's been awhile......

Ft. Worth, Texas. :-) ;-D

Bowled up in your area for 6 months back around '96. Don't they know what oil is up north? Had to trash all my equipment and have new stuff drilled up since the lanes are so dry up there. :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Most of the alleys around here didnt go to synthetic lanes until 1994 with some waiting until just 4-5 years ago.

My highlight was bowling with Bob Learn Jr in a Pro Am back in 1998.

Wood, synthetic, either are pretty irrelevant to me. Both have their own quirks. I shoot pretty regularly on synthetics in 3 centers and 3 wood centers down here. I don't really have a preferance either way on it. ;-D

Hmm....Highlight for me I guess would be winning the division 1 singles event of the 1994 Fort Worth American Bowling Congress City Tournament. I was a few months shy of turning 19 and with the victory (shot 782 scratch), I became the youngest Ft. Worth City Champion in history and the record still stands. B-)

Down here I get to compete against quite a few pros on a regular basis. Chris Johnson and I grew up bowling against each other as kids. D. J. Archer was coached by my father when he was a teenager. Del Ballard and his wife Carolyn Dorin-Ballard live not far from me. Chris Barnes is in the area and bowls the tournaments. Paul Fleming is a local boy. We've also got a few ex-pros like Ron Williams around here too. In fact, Ron does all my drilling work and we discuss new equipment quite a bit. The Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex is a pretty good place to live in if you're a bowler. :-)

Played OG in football my freshman year of high school. Health condition ended that...now I'm pretty much out of sports and just do cycling and weights. I might take up golf and get back into tennis, though.
