St. John's competed in the Pennsylvania Classic this weekend in Lancaster, PA. The team was in 2nd after the completion of 9 team games but struggled in the baker portion of the tournament in day 2 to finish 3rd. We had a 9,888 total pinfall (193.88 average) and finished roughly 250 pins behind William Paterson and 35 pins behind Stony Brook in the 13 team field. Our JV team finished 6th overall.
Brandon Soedarmasto led the team with a 3rd place individual finish, averaging just under 210 for the nine game block. Zack Porter also averaged above 200, while freshman Gilbert Lasala finished -5 for nine games.
The 31st Annual St. John's Alumni Doubles fundraiser tournament will take place on October 15, 2017 at 1:00pm at South Levittown Lanes. Alumni Ian Lang and sophomore Anthony Naujokas are expected to defend their title.
The cost for this year’s event will be $70.00 for graduated alumni, $30.00 for full-time students and $13.00 for those wishing to participate in the buffet only. The fee includes 3 games of bowling and the hot/cold buffet. We will also have a bowling ball raffle and an opportunity to purchase some of our T-shirts and super bowl boxes that we will be selling as a fundraiser for the team this season.
Please R.S.V.P. no later than Monday, October 9th, 2017 so we can figure out how much food we need to order. You can contact us here to let us know if you are coming.
The team was ranked 21st in the country last year. This year’s team returns 5 of the 8 starters and will have some talented new players such as Tony Macchietto. Our goal is to make the National Championships in Lincoln, Nebraska.
If you can’t attend this year’s tournament and would like to make a tax deductible donation to the program, contact us about how to do so. Any donation would be greatly appreciated! Remember, with your support we can keep our program as one of the elite programs in the country.
We hope to see all of you at South Levittown.
