One of the brightest and hardest working young athletes we have seen in a long time, Miss Caroline Thesier is truly having a memorable 2019. In January, she was selected to Junior Team USA from her performance at the Team USA Trials in Las Vegas. In March, she won her second Storm Youth Championship (SYC) title in Rohnert Park, California. At home in North Carolina, she won three Tough Shot Tour titles and was named Bowler of the Year in May. She traveled to Smyrna, TN for Memorial Day weekend and finished second overall in the U20 Division at the Music City SYC. After that she traveled to Junior Team USA camp in Texas where she said she got to know her other teammates and built a special bond with them.

Caroline went straight from Junior Camp to Florida for Teen Masters where she had another impressive runner-up finish. As soon as she finished in Florida, Caroline, her brother Nate and her dad Jack drove home to North Carolina to pick up her mom and then continued their summer travels to Detroit for Junior Gold.

Caroline’s week in Detroit was solid from start to finish and she was never lower than 18th place and qualified 3rd for the U17 TV show which aired on CBS Sports. In the title match, Caroline bowled 265 to take home the title and a $4000 scholarship.

When asked what the highlight of her action packed summer was, Caroline said,

“The highlight of my summer had to be either Team USA Camp or winning Junior Gold. Both of them were so amazing, I can’t decide!”

After a celebratory family trip to Disney World, she came home and won the first Tough Shots Tour event of their season in Durham, NC. Caroline is entered in the last two SYCs this year in Wichita and Myrtle Beach so we can assume more titles might be added to her growing resume.

 

It appears that there’s no stopping Caroline this year!
