Rogan and Anderson Go Through Top Seeds to Advance in 14th Teen Masters


Two bowlers who upset top seeds are among the survivors after Wednesday’s high school division Round of 8 match play in the 14th annual Teen Masters at the National Bowling Stadium.

Four surviving boys and girls in their respective high school divisions along with the two surviving boys and girls in the 14-under divisions will bowl the concluding head-to-head single-elimination matches Thursday.

In the boys high school division, No. 17 seed Corey Rogan of East Meadow, N.Y., had his hands full defeating No. 1 seed Kristopher Prather of Milton, Fla., in the Round of 16, 4-2 in the best-of-seven-game match and then defeated No. 8 seed Jimmy Ewell of Austin, Texas, 4-3 in the Round of 8.

“Winning in the Round of 16 gave me a lot of confidence,” said the 18-year-old Rogan who will attend McKendree University this fall. “I worked on my hand position tonight (Round of 8) and made most of my spares on the tough lane conditions and that was really important in winning.”

In the girls high school division, No. 16 seed Alexa Anderson of Hudson, Fla. defeated No. 1 seed Thea Aspiras of Chesapeake, Va., 4-2 in the Round of 16 and then swept No. 9 seed Katelyn Bullock of Brooklyn, Ark., 4-0 in the Round of 8.

“I can’t put into words how it feels to make it this far,” said the 18-year-old Anderson who will attend Webber International University this fall. “You have to bring your “A” game, stay in the moment and not worry about anyone else. The win tonight gave me a lot of confidence for tomorrow.”

In the Boys 14-under division, 14-year-old Greg Young of Viera, Fla., def. Wesley Low Jr. of Palmdale, Fla., 3-1 in a best-of-five-game match up to advance to Thursday’s championship match against 14-year-old Jeffrey Juarez of East Meadow, N.Y. Juarez swept Brandon Soedarmasto of Levittown, N.Y., 3-0 to advance to the final.

In the Girls 14-under division, 13-year-old Ashley Dunn of Palmdale, Calif., defeated Sierra Kanemoto of Dayton, Ohio, 202-189, in their final game to post a 3-2 best-of-five-game victory and advance to Thursday’s championship match against Chevelle Holstein of Sparks, Nev. Holstein swept Rebecca Gotterbarn of Garden City South, N.Y., 3-0, in Wednesday’s other semifinal round match.

In addition to competing for scholarship prizes, the two Teen Masters champions will join two Collegiate Masters winners in earning invitations to bowl against the best bowlers in the world in the 2010 PBA World Series of Bowling, Oct. 24-Nov. 6, at South Point Bowling Center in Las Vegas.
