2014 – Superior Performance
Jeff Kwiatkowski began his bowling career as a junior, then high school followed by adult leagues. Just out of high school, Jeff started winning tournaments and he hasn’t stopped since. The Strike It Rich tournament in 1988 started his winning ways, which included a repeat victory in 1992.
Improving during his early PBA years he went on to even greater things. At the 1995 ABC/USBC Open Championship in Reno in the National Bowling Stadium he captured the All Events shooting 762 in team, 732 in doubles and 697 in singles for an impressive 2191 total. That year featured the largest participation ever in the nearly 100 year history of the event. Jeff also shot a 299 game in the team event that year. Sports Illustrated magazine featured his accomplishment in their September 11, 1995 issue. His participation record for the USBC over 21 years is 200.6.
Jeff and his Loma Linda/Ventura teammates won 4 consecutive Thursday Traveling Classic (Toledo’s premier adult male league) titles from 2003-2006. They topped that record by taking the Actual Team Championship in the Ohio State USBC Championship Tournament in 2013 with a total score of 3414.
Jeff also laid claim to the 2007 Greater Toledo USBC Masters title and has seven singles titles to his credit. He has 46-300 games and 35-800 series to his credit. His highest average was 237.
Jeff was inducted into the Greater Toledo Hall of Fame in 2007 for Superior Performance. Tonight we acknowledge his expertise on the lanes by adding his name to the list of Ohio SUPERIOR PERFORMERS.
