Since 1997, Teen Masters has brought youth bowlers from all over the country together for an unforgettable experience filled with competition, challenge and camaraderie. This year, Brandon Soedarmasto of Levittown, New York and Brigitte Jacobs of Freeport, Illinois won the Boys’ and Girls’ championships respectively, with Battlefield, Missouri’s Trey Brand and Wooster, Ohio’s Allie Leiendecker clinching the 14-and-under category for their genders. Thirteen-year-old Brand, competing at his first Teen Masters, also made a very impressive showing in the Boys’ title match, placing second to Soedarmasto.

Dexter has been a proud sponsor of the Teen Masters for 18 years, and recently awarded $5,000 in scholarship funds at this summer’s event at South Point Bowling Stadium in Las Vegas as part of the Dexter Leaders Challenge Program.

“I am very impressed by the focus and dedication I see in these young bowlers each year.  When these kids hit the lanes at the Teen Masters, it’s evident that they are constantly working on their game, honing their skills throughout the entire year,” said Bud Clapsaddle, Dexter’s Vice President. “We’ve been a proud partner of this event since 1998 and are pleased to help these student athletes toward their college education with our Dexter’s Leaders Challenge scholarship prizes.”
