Terri Azvedo

Director

I started bowling by taking a Bowling PE class when I attended the University of California, Irvine.  After that, I bowled in various leagues at different houses.  I have bowled in various tournaments and met my husband at Fountain Bowl in 1998. I follow youth bowling since both of my daughters have been in youth program for the past 12 years.  I joined the Orange County USBC as a director in 2018.  In 2018, I also completed the training and certification to become a Bronze Level Certified Coach.  I used those skills to coach the U15 USA Bowling team in the Regional Tournament (Las Vegas, NV), then the National Tournament (Detroit, MI).  I travel every summer to cheer on my daughters as they compete in Junior Gold.  I joined the State Board in 2019 to help promote the sport of bowling.  Bowling has been an important part of my life and I want all bowlers to have the same positive experience that I have enjoyed. 

Andre Eubanks

CYC & Director 

Began bowling at the age of 2 and have been at it constantly ever since.  Bowling has always been an integral part of my identity and I strive to improve the state of the sport in all aspects.  I have bowled over 30 perfect games, with a high series of 834.  I began my involvement in the service side of bowling at the age of 15, assisting the youth director with coaching and other administrative tasks.  I then went on to serve on the local YABA board, and was elected Sgt-At-Arms for several terms.  I also served one term as Treasurer for the California Youth Leaders Association. In 2003, I took a hiatus from service to focus on my educational and bowling aspirations, during which time I attained a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and became a member of the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA).  Now that my professional and bowling careers are stable I am glad to say that my hiatus is officially over.  I am the past District 7 Director for the CYC and am now the Co-Chair of the CYC and Director on the main board. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the CUSBC.  I owe many of my successes to youth bowling, as the skills and experiences attained prepared me for higher level competition.  Additionally, the scholarship dollars earned funded a great deal of my education, so I am forever indebted to this sport.

Lynn Graves

I began bowling in 1964 in a learn to bowl class. I Got hooked right away and after the 4 week class they signed us up for a league. I was elected secretary and didn’t know a thing about what I was to do.
