Team Final 2014

Men’s Bowling Region III Runner-up; Alex DiGenaro and Mary Townley Earn All-Region

The Cayuga Spartan men’s bowling team moved their record to an impressive 46-10 on the season. This ranks them 58th in the country for men’s collegiate bowling in the USBC. They achieved these heights by their recent 2nd place finish in the NJCAA Region 3 team championships held at AMF Lanes in Utica. This is the best finish in the school’s short bowling history. Cayuga was led by standout Alex DiGenaro (Liverpool, NY) who shot 1577 for the all events total…which earned him a berth on the All-Region team…another first for the College.

Also receiving accolades was freshman Bernie Cecchini (Union Springs, NY) who continued his recent hot shooting firing a 835 four-game block earning him a 3rd place finish in the singles version of the very difficult 8-game format. Cecchini also just missed out on the All-Region team finishing 4 pins short.

The short-handed Spartan Women’s bowling team gave a good showing placing 4th at the Regionals. They were led by the stellar bowling of sophomore Mary Townley (Liverpool, NY)…who was placed on the women’s All-Region team. This final showing qualified Townley, Beth Piston (East Syracuse-Minoa, NY) and Deanne Connolly (Mynderse Academy, NY) for the USBC Singles sectionals in Allentown, PA against the top 300 women collegiate bowlers in the country. Both Spartan teams will be bowling in the NJCAA Nationals at Thruway Lanes in Buffalo on Feb 28th and March 1st.  The Spartans are coached by Head Coach Steve Spinney and Assistant Coaches Christine Nichols and Nancy Spinney.
