Alice youth bowler Ty Resendez has punched his ticket again to nationals.

The Alice High School junior competed in the Junior Gold qualifier in San Antonio Sunday and won the bowling tournament. Resendez won the tournament with a score of 844 through four games.

The win qualifies him to his fourth-straight national tournament. Overall, Resendez was 11th in the Linda Quayle tournament in San Antonio.

Last year, Resendez qualified to nationals in Indianapolis, Ind.

The tournament awards scholarships and youth bowlers competing in the under-20 and under-15 divisions also have the opportunity to earn a spot on Junior Team USA. The tournament has six divisions – under-12 boys, under-12 girls, under-15 boys, under-15 girls, under-20 boys and under-20 girls.

Junior Gold qualifying events are held throughout the country. Resendez qualified by placing in the Texas State United State Bowling Congress Youth Leaders Tournament the spring.

Resendez, who now regularly turns in scores of 200 or more, has won some thousands in scholarship money through bowling tournaments. In these last four years, Resendez is the only youth bowler from South Texas to compete in the national tournament. He’s also one of only two Alice youth bowlers to ever compete nationally.
