Gazmine Mason is in a league of her own as the only full-time black bowler competing on the 2019 Professional Women’s Bowling Association tour. Mason’s achievements range from gold medals to NCAA championships, but it was the embarrassment of a last-place trophy as a child that motivated her to get to this point. She shares her journey to going pro and creating a community of like-minded black girls to encourage each other.

Mason will compete in the GoBowling.com PWBA Regional Championship on Saturday, August 24 on CBS Sports Network.
