2013 – Carl (Ed) Hounshell
Ed Hounshell’s parents first took him bowling at the age of nine. He did not become interested in the sport until after his graduation in 1970.
Over the years he has accumulated so many tournament championships that keeping track of them has become a task.
He has captured seven Ohio State USBC State Bowling Association Championships beginning in 1989 through 2008. These include team actual in 1989 and 2007, doubles actual in 197, team handicap, team all events actual and handicap, and singles actual in 2008.
Ed has won sixteen Dayton city titles from 1972 through 2009. These include two singles championships, three team championships, four senior team championships, five doubles championships, one mixed doubles championship and one senior doubles championship.
He has rolled twenty-six three hundred games and seven 800 plus series, his highest an 865.
Ed was elected to the Dayton Bowling Association Hall of Fame in 2000.
He states that only the twenty-eight marriage to his wife, Joan, tops his list of Most Proud Achievements. “Without her, none of this would have been possible.”
