In the next handful of weeks during the summer, we will be taking a look back at this past season and recognize those that have achieved high success by us at Rusch's Bowl. We will also be recognizing those that have broken as well as set new records by us this season. There will be no particular order we will do these. Our next annual spotlight will be on three of our youth bowlers, Luke Winter, Tyler Carpenter, and Greydon Brown.
First Luke Winter (left). Going into the season, Luke was fresh off being named on the All-Association Youth Boy’s First Team in the Greater Fox Cities Association last season after his dominating performance the prior season. Going into this season and heading into his Junior year at Appleton North High School, Luke continued to build his name as one of the most dominant high school bowlers in the state. In the high school scene, Luke individually qualified for state after tying for the District 8A ‘Bowler of the Year’ award and the Appleton North boys team also qualified for state. He placed 5th at the Wisconsin High School State Championships for the singles portion and made the TV finals show. His dominating performance also showed at Rusch’s all season long in our Saturday Morning Youth league. Throughout the year he fired a couple of 700+ series to keep his name still going around in the weekly high scores throughout multiple viewing outlets. However, his most notable morning would come on the last week of the league on April 3rd when Luke fired games of 255, 236, and a 279 for a 770 series. This would also mark the highest youth series of the year at Rusch’s. Up until the regular season ended in July, Luke would go on to dominate the youth scene after a couple of top 3 finishes in the JBST and WYBT tours respectively.
Second, Tyler Carpenter (middle). Going into the season, Tyler was heading into his Sophmore year at Kimberly High School. He has been a part of their team program the past two seasons. He has also been bowling in our Saturday Morning Youth league since fall of 2012 and has shown improvement tremendously since his arrival. His years of improvement and hard work finally paid off on Saturday March 6th when Tyler did the unthinkable and fired a 300 game. With this lifetime achievement, Tyler automatically puts his name in the Rusch’s history books by having only one out of three youth 300 games in the history of Rusch’s Bowl (Matthew Cherney 2012-2013 and Max Schmidt 2013-2014). With his 300 game, Tyler also shot his first ever sanctioned 700 series with a 732. There is a great future for Tyler in the sport!
Lastly, Greydon Brown (right). Going into the season, Greydon was fresh off being named on the All-Association Youth Boy’s First Team in the Greater Fox Cities Association last season. Looking back at last season, Greydon most notably became the third ever youth bowler to fire a sanctioned 800 series at Rusch’s Bowl with an 805 series (Max Schmidt 2016-2017 and Cale Rusch 2019-2020), that series is second of all time in terms of youth at Rusch’s. Throughout this season, Greydon was heading into his Senior year at Appleton North High School, where he finished his final year as a youth and high school bowler strong! In the high school scene, Greydon qualified for state both as an individual and as well as a team member for the Appleton North boys team. His great performance also shined light at Rusch’s Bowl in our Saturday Morning Youth league. Throughout this season Greydon was arguably one of the most consistent youth bowlers in the area. He fired a couple of 700+ series and was always on top in terms of standings and weekly high scores. Greydon capped off the league with a solid 215 average on the dot to put himself second in the Association for this year's youth averages.
We would like to congratulate these young athletes once again on their outstanding performance this season! Luke Winter on his dominating performance state-wide and his amazing season overall! Tyler Carpenter for doing the remarkable and firing a perfect game and writing history! And finally Greydon Brown on finishing his last youth season with a bang! We can't wait to see Luke and Tyler back next season, and we wish Greydon the best in all his future endeavors as he goes to Auburn University in the fall! Congratulations gentlemen!
