ARLINGTON, Texas - The United States Bowling Congress Board of Directors has elected three-time Team USA member Andrew Cain of Phoenix as USBC President for the remainder of the current term, which ends July 31, 2012. Cain, 30, takes over for Jim Sturm, who stepped down earlier this month.
"I'm very humbled and honored the board has confidence in me, and I look forward to continuing our positive work for bowling and fulfilling our mission," said Cain, who has served on the USBC Board of Directors since 2007. "The organization has clear goals and priorities set for the future. The industry and membership can expect steady leadership from me designed to keep us on course."
Cain, who started bowling at age 6 and had his first 300 game at age 12, was a member of Team USA in 2002, 2003 and 2005 and was a member of Junior Team USA in 2001. He has won nearly a dozen medals in international competition, and most recently was a member of the Team All-Events champions at the 2011 USBC Open Championships. Cain, who owns a small wholesale business, graduated from Arizona State with a degree in justice studies.
In another announcement, John Losito of Lincoln, Neb., has been named to the USBC Board of Directors as the second Bowling Proprietors' Association of America representative. Losito, the proprietor at Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln, fills the spot vacated by Sturm's departure.
