Diego Cortez, a junior at Waukegan High School, and Ethan Kailin, a sophomore at Warren High School, qualified for the IHSA State Boy's Tournament. Both boys qualified as individuals from the IHSA Sectional Tournament held at Don Carter Lanes in Rockford, IL on January 19, 2019. Ethan had a total pinfall of 1348 and Diego had 1340 at the Sectional tournament. These two bowlers, as well as the Lake Zurich boys team, continued on to the IHSA State tournament at St. Clair Bowl in O'Fallon, IL on January 24-25, 2019. Friday's State competition landed Diego in 12th place with a 1342 pinfall for six games and Ethan in 44th with 1271. Both boys advanced to the IHSA Finals on Saturday. Diego stayed consistent grinded out games of 223, 259, 217, 223, 189, 225 for a combined two-day total pinfall of 2678 landing him with a solid 6th place finish at Saturday's event. Ethan fell to 56th place and Lake Zurich boys team placed 5th!
Waukegan High School has never had a bowling program. Diego represented his school with superior performance, sportsmanship, and pride. A huge accomplishment for one of our youth bowlers.
Ethan accomplished his first official 300 game during this year's high school season, and his first unofficial 300 last year as a freshman. Both of these boys have a great future in front of them.
Thank you to all the members who support our youth bowlers who continually represent our association with huge success.

Welcome to the 2018-2019 bowling season! This is a historic season because the four Associations in Lake County merged together to form one new association. The Lake County Women’s BA, Lake County BA, Lake County Youth and Waukegan Women’s Bowling Associations are now the Greater Lake County USBC.
We are a diverse board with members from each of the past associations coming together to serve you, the bowlers of Lake County. We have a new website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and a renewed desire to make this the best association we can. We have retained all of the tournaments that you enjoyed in the past, updated the awards program and we will continue to honor our Stars of Tomorrow, Bowlers of the Year, and continue to search for deserving Hall of Fame members.
If you have any thoughts, suggestions, or concerns, please bring them to any of our board members so we can better serve your needs.
Good luck this season, and please enjoy participating in the sport that we all love.
Let’s go bowling!
