The VPUSBC is proud to announce our 2014 inductees to the Hall of Fame. Being inducted for bowling performance are William “Bill” Glazier IV, and Rich Brewer. Being inducted for meritorious service is Judy Golightly.
He has been a member of the association All Star team in 2011-12, male bowler of the year that same season, and holds the men’s VPUSBC all time high average for a season with a 241 for the 2011-12 season. On December 12, 2013 Glazier bowled an 858 series. He’s bowled numerous high scores over the years. He also owns X-Treme Performance Pro Shop located inside Century Lanes.
Brewer has also been a bowler since he was a young boy and a member of our association for almost 30 years. His bowling achievements include being the first person to bowl an 800 (825) series at Fairlanes/Hidenwood.
He is has won numerous awards locally and on the state level. On December 28, 1994 he had an amazing night of bowling with an 811 series for his first three games of a doubles league and finished off the night with a 300 game for a record 1,111 series for four games. In 1996 Brewer shot the first 800 in the Hampton Roads Bowling Assn Open city tournament and combined with his doubles partner Richard Avery for a 1573 scratch doubles score. That record high score remains unbeaten today. He has had 11 800 series and more than 20 300 series.
Golightly has been a name and face that many association bowlers recognize and remember for her longtime commitment to the sport. She has been involved in bowling since the mid- 1970s when her son wanted to bowl. During her time volunteering with youth bowlers the owner of Newmarket Bowl in Newport News hired her to become the League Coordinator.
She will readily admit her priority is youth bowlers, but she also looked out for the adult bowlers in the area (many who are former youth bowlers!)
She was encouraging the to bowlers and always looking for opportunities to let them learn more about the sport and participate in tournaments across the state. She has had an impact on the youth bowlers she mentored with many of them becoming members of the Hall of Fame themselves or members of the All Star teams. She, too, has been a bowler and is member of the Virginia Queens and the Virginia 600 club.
