NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Senior Evan Weinberg once again competed in NJSIAA's Individual Tournament of Champions (TOC) for bowling at Carolier Lanes in North Brunswick Wednesday.  For the second year in a row he made it to the Stepladder Tournament and finished fourth, one of the best bowlers in New Jersey. 

In the first qualifying round Weinberg bowled a combined 718 to place him sixth of the 70 bowlers advancing him to the second qualifying round.  After that round his combined score was 1,448.  That is an average of 241 a game.  That was good enough to place him fifth in the Stepladder Tournament.

Weinberg faced the fourth seed on the ladder, Brian Garofino of Howell High School.  He out bowled Garofino 236-184 and advanced to the next round where he faced Daniel Lenk of East Brunswick.  Lenk won the game 230-224.

Coach Fabiano said, "Evan was Union County champion twice, sixth in the state as a sophomore, and fourth in the state as a junior and senior.  The year he finished with a 231 average.  He is a great kid and an amazing bowler."

The TOC is the last boys’ bowling tournament of the season.  A total of 70 qualify for it from the sectional tournaments and bowl three games in the first qualifying round.  The top 18 make it to the second qualifying round.  The top five best combined scores from the six games advance to the Stepladder Tournament. is Springfield’s free daily news source.
