WCST bowlers to compete Saturday in Las Vegas

The West Coast Senior Tour will move to Nevada on Saturday for its third bowling tournament of the year.

After two events in California, the WCST will host Saturday’s event at South Point Lanes in Las Vegas.

Thirty-seven bowlers are signed up for the 60-and-over, one-day tournament.

Left-handed Kevin Gannon of Lakewood will be one of the favorites. Gannon claimed the title of the last WCST tournament, breezing past Diz Francisco of Bakersfield, 255-182, in the championship match at Del Rosa Lanes in San Bernardino.

It was Gannon’s WCST-leading 43rd title and increased his WCST-best winnings to more than $110,000.

Gannon is expected to face stiff competition at South Point where Nevada bowlers are exceptionally strong. In November, the WCST held a tournament at South Point and the top four finishers resided in Nevada.

Dave Washburn of Las Vegas won that South Point event, claiming his first WCST title in the process and blasting a perfect game in the championship round.

Santa Monica’s Don Blatchford was the top California finisher in that tournament, taking fifth.

Gannon has been at the top of his game this year. In the WCST’s first tournament in Montclair, Calif., Gannon took second place behind champion Steve Heinzman of Parker, Ariz.

Heinzman barely missed the cut in San Bernardino, finishing 12th during qualifying. The top 10 bowlers advanced.
