Junior Gold Championships from July 18 to 22 in Indianapolis.
Cromer tied for 476th out of 792 competitors in the girls 20 and under division, which included four days with four games each in the opening rounds.
Her best day was her first, with a peak score of 213, a 729 total and 182.25 average to rank at 105, but the following days were different, which she owed to organizers’ use of varying oil patterns on the lanes.
“After I did one game, I’d have to move down eight or 10 lanes, and a lot of the girls I bowled with were right-handed, so the oil broke down differently,” she said. “It made it hard to adjust.”
Cromer’s final score was a 2576 and a 161 average.

Hearing professional bowlers speak at Junior Gold about their early struggles inspired her to stay persistent.
“I’m going to keep working at it,” she said. “I want to be a role model for kids in Craig to let them know they can make it far.”
Over the Line tournament takes place during Balloon Festival
The Colorado State Over the Line Championship is seeking registration for the tournament that will be in action Aug. 6 at Loudy-Simpson Park during Moffat County Balloon FestivalMoffat County Balloon Festival..
This is the second year the game Over the Line has been part of Balloon Festival, and winners will be the official state champs.
The game Over the Line was originally created by Old Mission Beach Athletic Club, a variation of bat and ball games like baseball and softball that involves three-person teams.
Hitters do not run any bases, and the field consists of a triangle in place of home plate and a rectangle for fielders. A batter’s teammate serves as the pitcher and tosses them the ball — a modified version of a softball — which they hit into the field of play.
Anything not caught by opposing fielders landing in the field qualifies as a hit, with three hits scoring a point. A home run is anything hit past and clearing all fielders without them touching it.

The cost is $75 per team for a group of three. Teams can be co-ed, and women are allowed to wear gloves while fielding. Players must be 12 or older.
The deadline to register is July 31, and forms are available at Jackson’s Office Supply, 106 W. Victory Way.
