CONGRATULATIONS! 2 titles for teen bowler Evan Smith


Congratulations to West Seattle’s Evan Smith for winning two titles on the Junior Bowlers Tour! The photos and report are from proud mom Bri’Anna Smith:

Evan Smith, an incoming 9th grader at WSHS, won the Junior Bowlers Tour (JBT) Touring Players Championship last weekend in Las Vegas! She bowled various JBT events throughout the Pacific NW to qualify for the end of season event in Nevada.


Her 6th-place finish for the season awarded her the title of 2015-2016 Pacific NW Conference Handicap Division Rookie of the Year. No other bowler has ever won Rookie of the Year and the Touring Players Championship in the same year! She bowled 10 games on Saturday and finished the day in 8th place. The top 60% advance to Sunday. On Sunday, the tournament cuts to the top 10 bowlers after 5 more games. She ended in 4th place after that cut. The top 10 bowlers then bowl 8 games of match play and again cut to the top 4 for step ladder finals.

Evan went into the finals in 2nd place. She bowled two more games to win the whole tournament! She bowled a total of 25 games and earned a total of $2,155 in scholarship money over the course of the weekend. It was back to back wins for female bowlers, the Pacific NW, AND West Seattle Bowl! (Zoe Mahn, 2016 Vashon Island High School graduate, won the event last year.) The championship match will be available for viewing soon on YouTube at JBT900.

A BIG thank you to Coach Tom Favre at West Seattle Bowl for all of his time and support! We are proud of Evan and all of the hard work she puts into practice and picking up spares year-round! She has had a fantastic year earning scholarship money doing what she loves! To learn more about JBT, please visit:

    Evan played on a past volleyball team of mine at Hiawatha where she showed that she is a very gifted athlete and OUTSTANDING young woman.  And a couple years prior to that she was a rider on one of my school bus routes, she’s a true joy to be around!

     I was proud of her then and even more so now, good job Evan…HIGH-FIVE!!!!
