SPRINGFIELD, NJ - Junior Evan Weinberg competed in NJSIAA's state individual championship for bowling at Carolier Lanes in North Brunswick Wednesday.  The field was made up of the top 70 high school boy bowlers from the preceding sectional tournaments.  After all of the bowling was completed Wednesday, Dayton's Evan Weinberg finished fourth in the state.

In the first qualifying round, Weinberg finished sixth with a total of 738 or 246 a game.  That was good enough to put him in the top 18 and make it to the second qualifying round.  Those 18 bowlers then completed three more games and only the top five aggregate scores for all six games qualified for the stepladder tournament.

Weinberg finished fifth after bowling 717 in the next three games for a total of 1455 for the six games.  That was good enough to average just over 242 a game.  He faced Steve Nicholson of Jackson Memorial in the first round of the ladder and won 190-166.  He lost to the eventual winner of the tournament in the second round, Ryan Carlisi of Stewart, 235-183.

Coach Felix Fabiano said, “He had a great tournament.  He placed fourth in the state and he also got a medal for the second highest game in the tournament.”  He bowled 279 in his second game.
