2/28/2013 - ROYAL AIR FORCE LAKENHEATH, England -- RAF Lakenheath hosted the 2013 Pepsi United States Bowling Congress Youth European Zone UK Regional Finals at Liberty Lanes Feb. 9 and 10.

The championship series is a U.S.-wide tournament open to all USBC youth members.

"This championship is the premier tournament for youth bowlers," said Michael Palase, Lakenheath youth bowling league supervisor. "It is also one of the most exciting opportunities available to [them]."

After qualifying in their local leagues, the youth bowlers then advance to the European Regional Zone Finals and European finals. Additionally, the bowlers are eligible for scholarships through the league. In 2012 the tournament awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships to youth bowlers.

This year 52 youth bowlers from RAFs Coughton, Menwith Hill and Lakenheath, and Stuttgart, Germany, competed for $3,200 in scholarships for the six-and-under, the eight-and-under and 12-and-over handicap divisions.

In addition to the Pepsi Youth Championships, bowlers had an extra opportunity to earn scholarships through the Youth/Adult Scotch Doubles side tournament, which paired a child with a parent or other adult.
