Letters to the Editor - Bowling inaccuracies

Dear Editor:As the Junior League director at Del Rio Lanes, I was shocked to read an article written by student writer Brianne Schaer ("Ballbusters Thriving in Bowling League," (1/30/09). I'm sure her writing skills will improve and her fact-finding ability will be tested over and over. There are a few facts that need to be clarified immediately: We would never allow the team name "Ballbusters" to be used in Junior League. Our leagues are for kids 3 to 21 years of age. Kevin Gonzalez's average is 186, not 187. David Wilson's average is 181, not 167. Cody Trepte's average is 182, not 167. The "Teen Mania" league bowls at 11 a.m. on Saturdays, not 1 p.m. They bowl three games, not four. We invite all interested kids to bowl with us on Saturdays. No kids "sit on the bench." - Christine Tarvin, Junior Director Del Rio Lanes ********** Published: February 13, 2009 - Volume 7 - Issue 43
