Patriot Bowlers Compete at UP's
Congratulations to our Patriot Bowlers for their success in the U.P. Singles tournament last weekend. On the boy's side, seniors Stephen Kangas and Robert Papp scored in the top 16 and will move on to the Regional competition later this month.
On the girl's side, senior Kaylee LaMere, sophomore Kylie Junak, and freshman Elise Ketola scored in the top 16 and will also move on to the Regional competition later this month.
Additionally, freshman Elise Ketola, pictured below with Coach Barrie Rae and Assistant Coach Pat Gingras, earned runner-up honors, missing the U.P. Championship by just 12 pins.
Best of luck in the upcoming Regional competition!
