Gazmine Mason is out to prove ‘black girls can bowl too’

The NCAA champion and gold medalist uses her platform to uplift other women bowlers of color

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.
