The 2018 California Youth State Championships were held the last two weekends in July at Keystone Lanes in Norwalk. We had 120 teams participate and 13 bowlers took advantage of the free entries provided from the California Pepsi District Finals. We will be awarding Scholarships in Team $8,356, Doubles $8,354, Singles $8,355 and All-Events; $1,600. We are also awarding $1,037 in Ancillary Scholarships (Queens & Masters/Prince & Princess/Coaches Relief); $200 in Helbing/Irwin All-events (highest scratch series aged 11-under) and $3,200 in $2 brackets for a combined total of $32,702 in scholarships!
Over $32,700 in Scholarships awarded at the 2018 California Youth State Championships!

We had three honor scores this year. All first time USBC Certified scores! Kevin Banaag from Jewel City Bowl shot 300 during Singles event for a 758 series and shot 731 in Doubles. Despite these great scores, Kevin came in second for All-events behind Joshua Villegas from Westminster Lanes with a 2117 total series.

Lamaki Welch from Oak Tree Lanes and Johnalan Linhorst, Jr from Buena Lanes both shot their first certified 800 series…
Lamaki Welch: 299-264-247 = 810 (Doubles)
Johnalan Linhorst, Jr: 290-239-277 = 806 (Doubles)

Other great scores were from Julia Frias shooting 736 scratch for the Queens event and 2057 total series winning A-Div Girls All-events. Troyace Powers from Mt. Mesa won All-events in the D-division and also took home an extra $100 scholarship (Helbing Award) for having the highest scratch series for Boys 11-under. Aaliyah Christian from Oak Tree Lanes took home the Irwin Award, which is the highest scratch All-events series for Girls 11-under. Please visit us at CalUSBC.com for the full scholarship payout listing.

Thanks to everyone for participating this year and for supporting our fundraising efforts. We were able to raise over $2,500 from the opportunity raffle and $804 in the bowling ball raffle (donated by Ebonite). Our two ball winners were Johnalan Linhorst from Buena Lanes and Steve DiBartolomeo from Jewel City. Also special thanks to Digital Team Photography for donating $900 to the All-Events scholarships.

Thank you to Jewel City Bowl for bringing in the most teams at 12 and Santa Clarita right behind them bringing 10 teams. And special thanks to Harbor Lanes in Eureka and E&O Bowl in McKinleyville for always traveling so far each year to attend this event! Next year won’t be as bad since we will be in Northern California next year at Tyme to Bowl Lanes in Oroville. This bowl is located next door to Gold Country Casino so I’m sure the parents will be really excited about attending this one!

We hope that everyone had a great time as we sure did! We look forward to seeing everyone again next year out on the lanes and wish all of you a great 2018-19 youth bowling season.

Click here for the list of winners

Welcome to the 2018 California Pepsi USBC Youth Championships. To date, the Pepsi Youth Championships nationwide has awarded more than $6 million in scholarships — it is estimated that at least $500,000 in scholarships will be awarded nationwide this season alone. By conducting the league level competition you are giving your bowlers an opportunity to help finance their college education. California awarded $50,000 in scholarships last year and has awarded over $903,801 since 1998.

For the 18th year in a row, www.BowlersParadise.com will be sponsoring this event along with www.EliteBowling.com. Also each pro shop/center in the eight hosting Pepsi District Finals will be donating a bowling ball for our fundraising raffle at each site to help us raise more scholarship dollars. Please visit these businesses and THANK them for their generous contributions by shopping at their establishments!

Thank you for your support and participation in one of the largest scholarship events in California.  Last year we worked extremely hard with your help in raising funds so that we could award $50,000 in scholarships!  With the rising cost of education, this tournament strongly benefits many young bowlers on their way to a promising future.  Good luck and we’ll see you out on the lanes!
