The 2019 North American Finals where hosted by the NY Road Bowling Club. Bowlers competed on a quiet and scenic road just outside of the Catskill Mountains. WV bowlers battled talented bowlers from NY and Boston. However, luck was not on the side of our Novice 1’s, 2’s, or 3’s. Many of those matches came down to the final throw where WV came up feet short. The bright spot of the weekend was the WV Novice 4’s. The husband and wife duo of Gary and Kristen Daft proved to be more than the competition could handle. Both won their matches Saturday and advance to the finals on Sunday. With her win on Saturday propelling her to the finals, Kristen became the first women to ever play in a championship match at the North Americans. When the dust settled on Sunday, Gary Daft earned his first championship as a Novice 4 and Kristen was runner up. For the second year in a row, the Novice 4 class belongs to WV.
