The Northern Utah High School Bowling League is set to begin, and organizers are looking for a few good bowlers.
Or beginning bowlers.
Or enthusiastic bowlers.
The Northern Utah group will start its play at 4 p.m. on Oct. 28 at Davis Lanes. Teams from the Clearfield/Layton, Syracuse, Morgan, Roy, Box Elder, Layton Christian and Weber as well as St. Joseph/Ogden/Ben Lomond are already committed. But there are still openings and all high school-age bowlers are welcome.
Play will begin in earnest on Nov. 4 and run through February 2011. The cost is $10 per bowler, plus $4.50 per week.
While the prep lacrosse season is conducted during the spring, Top of Utah teams are staging a month-long Saturday tournament at the Weber County Fairgrounds.
The Fremont High-sponsored LAXtober includes teams from Fremont, Davis, Weber, Sky View, Bonneville, Northridge, West, Mountain Crest and Pocatello, Idaho.
Games run 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Saturday, with the championship round on Oct. 30.

The Region 5 golf championships will be staged today at Hubbard Golf Course on Hill Air Force Base. Action is set to begin at 10 a.m.
Bonneville completed a sweep of regional invitationals this year, and virtually has locked up the team title going into the final 18 holes. The talent-deep Lakers will be tuning up for the state 4-A championships, set for Oct. 18-19 at Sunbrook Golf Course in St. George.
The state 3-A tournament is set for Oct. 18-19 at Sunbrook, while the state 2-A tournament will run Oct. 18-19 at St. George Golf Club.
Of the 100 football teams in the state, just 10 have already been booted from postseason contention, with 10 more on the chopping block this week.
At stake is 67 postseason spots. In Region 4, four teams are still alive for the league title.
The Utah High School Basketball Coaches Association will hold its annual preseason clinic on Oct. 23 at Weber State University. All coaches are invited to join the UHSBCA and attend the clinic.
