Rash is the king of Wichita (Bowling)

Sean Rash learned how to bowl in his hometown of Anchorage, but he made his name in Wichita, Kan.

He bowled for Wichita State University and later won the PBA Wichita Open.

Now he’s been inducted into the Wichita Bowling Hall of Fame.

Rash, of Dimond High fame, is just 28 but already considered one of the greats of the game. He was honored over the weekend – then won the tournament to show that it was justified.

It wasn’t a token field either as it featured fellow exempt pros Pete Weber and Chris Barnes. But they were no match for the Alaskan.

Rash beat Chris Drewes of Wichita 225-190 in the final to earn the $2,600 top prize.

After turning pro in 2005, he has won four PBA titles – including a major – and more than $450,000 in career earnings.
