ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Anchorage's Sean Rash capped off his finest season as a professional bowler by being voted the PBA Player of the Year on Monday.
Rash collected just over 29 percent of the votes to win one of the closest votes in the award's history.
Rash, a 2000 Dimond High School graduate who honed his bowling skills in Alaska, led the PBA in scoring average, points, and money earnings.
He may have sealed his Player of the Year candidacy by winning the prestigious PBA Tournament of Champions in April.
Rash said on the PBA website that he played in 15 different countries in the last year, traveling to where the competitions were to stay sharp.
