SPRING HILL – For a lefty bowler like Anthony Caso, leaving the 7-pin standing can be the greatest cause of frustration.
But when Caso left that pin on the first ball of his final frame on Sunday, the result was perhaps his happiest moment ever on the lanes.
At Spring Hill Lanes, the house where he bowled as a youth, and a day after his 23rd birthday, Caso cherished the first victory of his pro career, winning the Professional Bowlers Association South Region’s 29th annual Crystal Automotive Spring Hill Open.

SPRING HILL – Tom Daugherty may hail from Riverview, but Spring Hill might start feeling like a second home.
It was 10 years ago that Daugherty, then from Wesley Chapel, collected his first Professional Bowling Association title at Spring Hill Lanes, and he earned another one there in 2008.
These days Daugherty is one of the more established pro bowler in the field of the Spring Hill Open, a PBA South Region event sponsored by neighboring Crystal Automotive, with a national tour victory under his belt.
