It's no secret that bowlers in Burlington are dedicated.

But a group of teenagers have taken that dedication a step further this summer.

Cotie Holbek, Joe Dietz, Kim Brown and Taylor Melahn are four that will try and take their game to the next level, in two separate national events.

Holbek and Dietz both qualified to compete in the Junior Gold National Tournament this weekend in Indianapolis, while the four will compete in Reno at the end of the month in the Teen Masters event.

Holbek won his qualifier in Wisconsin to reach the National Gold tournament, and is hoping to make it past the first cut of the event. There will be thousands of bowlers in Indianapolis, and only 150 bowlers will make the first cut.

Each bowler will have to bowl 18 games to get the score that will be used to make the cut.

It is the first time for both bowlers at the event.

"My goal is to make it past the first cut, shoot some high scores and represent Towne and Country (Lanes)," said Holbek. Dietz said he wanted to maintain good sportsmanship and bowl to the best of his ability.

Brown and Melahn will join those two at the Teen Masters event. It is the first time for all four at the event.

Melahn admitted she would be nervous.

"I'm very excited to go," she said. "(I just want) to bowl good, and not be mad."

Brown, meanwhile, is the youngest of the group. The other three are seniors, while she is a junior.

"I'm very excited," she said. "We've been friends for a while."

In preparation not only for the summer tournaments, but for further experience, 18 of the teens at Towne and Country Lanes have put together a summer league on lanes that are set up close to a professional format.

Lanes are oiled less, and oiled in random patterns.

"There's so many different patterns out there," said T&C General Manager Theresa Riemer. "They are harder conditions that make the kids work.

"They decided that they wanted to do this," she added. "They decided they wanted to be here, all summer."
