Team USA will send a talented group of six bowlers to represent the United States at the 2015 Pan American Bowling Confederation Men's Championships in Puerto Rico next month.
Competition will begin Sept. 14 and wrap up Sept. 18 at AMF Bolera Paradise Lanes in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The U.S. team will be made up of Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, John Janawicz of Winter Haven, Florida, Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, South Carolina, Marshall Kent of Yakima, Washington, Bill O'Neill of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, and Sean Rash of Montgomery, Illinois.
The PABCON Men's Championships will feature the best bowlers from the American Zone competing for medals in singles, doubles, trios, team, all-events and match-play Masters.
At the last PABCON Men's Championships in Las Vegas in 2012, Team USA took gold medals in singles, doubles, team and all-events. Janawicz is the defending singles champion, O'Neill is the reigning all-events champion and O'Neill teamed with Jones to win the doubles gold medal that year. O'Neill, Jones, Janawicz and Kent were a part of the gold-medal winning team.
