The St. John's bowling team had a relatively disappointing finish at both Christmas Tournaments in Allentown, Pa. The team placed 12th in each event out of 31 varsity teams. The first tournament at Haja Rose Bowl saw SJU finish 884 pins behind the leader University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. They finished 667 pins off the lead at the second event at Parkway Lanes.
Individually, Will Blanco led the team at Rose Bowl with a 202.4 average for five games, while Brandon Soedarmasto led the team at the Parkway tournament, averaging 196.2 for five games.
The team will resume competition January 27-29 when the top eight players fly to Las Vegas for the Sin City Open and the Rebel Classic, which is a Tier 1 tournament.
