Terry “T” Wiley began bowling at the age of 12 in youth leagues throughout the Washington, D.C. area. At age 14, he teamed with his Dad, Walter Wiley, in the BPAA Family Tournament and won their division. This qualified them for the State Finals in Staunton, Virginia, where father and son won the State Title. This title earned them a spot in the BPAA Family National Finals held at Bowl America Shirley. They did not go on to win that title, but it was a great accomplishment for a youth bowler.

Terry continued to excel in youth bowling, winning three Junior Virginia Masters titles, a Princess Anne Doubles championship with partner Steve Hill, as well as earning a second-place finish in the Vir-Mar District Invitational Tournament.

Terry moved from the youth leagues into adult leagues where he has had numerous accomplishments, including:

Terry continued to pursue his bowling by joining the PBA as a member from 1986-1990 and rejoining in 2008, where he has cashed twice in PBA national tournaments and has multiple “Top 16” finishes in PBA regional events. He has competed in 23 ABC/USBC National tournaments with a composite average of over 200.

Over the past seven years in the NCAUSBCA Open Championship Tournament, Terry has demonstrated excellence on the lanes by recording successive nine-game All Events totals of 2,096 (2007), 2,025 (2008), 2,118 (2009), 2,060 (2010), 1,928 (2011), 1,981 (2012), and 2,011 (2013) for an average of 225.7 for 63 games—very likely the highest Open Tournament composite average by any member since the creation of NCAUSBCA. Terry’s teams are always competitive each year, and his “Wiley’s Coyotes I” lineup took top honors in the 2008 Scratch Team category.

Terry “T” Wiley is an accomplished bowler with a wealth of knowledge that he will gladly share with fellow bowlers or anyone who approaches him. He is an outstanding addition to the NCAUSBCA Hall of Fame.
