This past weekend was the start of the 48th Mississippi State USBC Youth Championship Tournament.

Forty-Eight youth bowlers participated in the Singles, Doubles, and Team events. They came from New Albany, Tupelo, Jackson, Clinton, and Meridian.

Our local bowlers were Dustin Lepard, Scott Woodson, and Kristie Downey. The bowlers and their families enjoyed themselves and complimented the facility and staff. This weekend will see more youth bowlers competing at squad times for the Doubles/Singles event at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. Saturday and for the Team event at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. Sunday.

Come support our local bowlers or just watch some great youth bowling.

Hope everyone's summer is off to a great start. Remember to include Depot Bowling as part of your summertime fun.
