Mya Duhamel, 16, from Pittsfield, competed in the Junior Gold Championships in Indianapolis, Ind, this summer.
The event had more than 3,000 total juniors, competing in four different age brackets. Duhamel bowled in the under-18 girls division with 559 other competitors and finished in 49th place after 16 games in four different bowling centers throughout Indianapolis.
From there, Mya moved on to the first advancers round and finished in 39th, which meant she was on to the final advancers round and needed to place in the Top 16 to compete in match play. But after 10 games she maintained her 39th position and her run was over.
Duhamel now bowls out of Del Lanes in Delmar N.Y., regularly bowls in tournaments throughout New England and New York. She earned her spot in this tournament by winning a tournament in Auburn, Mass. in 2020. This was her fourth Junior Gold tournament and her best finish.

Elizabeth Freeman Center Launches Rise Together for Safety and Justice

PITTSFIELD, Mass — Elizabeth Freeman Center (EFC) announced the launch of "Rise Together for Safety and Justice," an evolution of their annual Third Thursday Walk a Mile fundraiser. 
Like the previous 10 years, EFC will continue to hold its annual event in September, soliciting the support and participation of local businesses, organizations, and individuals to help raise awareness and support for the work its staff, board and volunteers do every day in domestic and sexual violence prevention and response.
"While our fundraiser theme has changed, our vision remains the same. We envision our community free from domestic and sexual violence in which all people live in safety, with dignity and justice," Executive Director Janis Broderick said. "We have been so grateful for the support of our annual fundraisers that grew each year. We hope that you will continue to support Elizabeth Freeman Center and Rise Together with us."
Rise Together will continue to be a family-friendly, community event, gathering together (as much as public health advisories allow) to walk, march, stroll, dance, and move together against domestic and sexual violence and for safety and justice. The safety of the community is EFC's priority. Like last year, walks will be held throughout Berkshire County for increased accessibility and due to COVID-19 precautions.
