Mitchell’s Village Bowl hosts a series of Women’s State Bowling Championship Tournament events – Mitchell Republic

MITCHELL — About 150 women’s bowling teams from across the state traveled to Mitchell for the first of four April competitions at the South Dakota State Women’s Bowling Championships.

The event, the organization’s 81st annual, saw hundreds of women gather at Mitchell’s Village Bowl from Friday to Sunday for a weekend of fun, laughter and bowling.

With 20 lanes reserved for Saturday’s midday session, the lane was filled with the echo of bowling balls slamming into the lane and crashing into pins, accompanied by cheers and laughter as competitors kept their spirits up light.

Each of the teams competes for a cash prize consisting in part of the tournament entry fee.

“A portion of their entry goes into a prize fund, and the local association adds an additional $3,000 to the prize fund,” said Kristy Jones, a tournament organizer.

Team scores from this weekend’s competition will be combined with team scores from the remaining three weekends to determine a state champion.

After taking the week off to rest their elbows, bowlers will return to the Village Bowl April 8-10 for the second round. The Easter weekend will provide another break, before competition resumes from April 22-24 and April 29-May 1.
