This marks the end of the 2012-2013 bowling season. This season was marked by memorable performances from many bowlers. Eric Kempel dominated the bowling scene early in the year by winning 3 times in 3 months. Adam Peters and Matt McNiel became first time Major Championship winners and Eric Parvey and Matt Smallin became 2-time major winners with their wins at the Manitoba Open and KFYR TV Bowling Classic. Smallin dominated the month of February by winning multiple events. In the Spring, the main headline was the scoring pace at the Mens State Tournament in Minot. Both Wade Scott and Justin Sipma broke state records en route to winning Scratch All Events (2269 for Scott) and Singles (816 for Sipma).
Many storylines will continue into next season and NDBowling.com will be here to document another exciting season on the lanes. Thank you all for a great season and I look forward to another year!
