North American Regional Finals

August 2-4, 2019

<

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.

Celebrating 25yrs of competition, the West Virginia Irish Road Bowling Association would like to congratulate the 2020 Singles State Champions.  Matches were held on Wildcat Road in Ireland WV this past weekend, the same road where it all began years ago.  Travis McClintic, Wesley Parsons, and Blake Tasker each won their respective grades, and earned a chance to compete at the North American Regional Finals in October.  Three years after she won her first women’s title, Jamie Wilson returned to Wildcat Road and took top honors, remaining undefeated on that sacred stretch of blacktop.  Cheers to all who competed and let’s enjoy 25 more years of WV Irish Road Bowling!
