Ewing Students-Athletes Roll at Bowling Tournament
Well tonight, they certainly bowled…and bowled well.
Ewing’s Special Olympics Bowling Team took home quite a haul at the Mercer County Tournament held at the iconic Curtis Lanes earlier this month, walking away with nine gold medals, five silver medals, and a bronze.
Leading the way were Joseph Ranello and Beira DelMonte, who joined fellow EHS students Asante Evans, Hunter Matzer, David Monard in taking gold.
From the middle school, Vanessa Leggio and Oshan Foreman took top honors. Representing the elementary division, Lore’s James Campbell and Antheil’s Gabriel Herrington-Volaric also brought gold medals back to hang proudly in their rooms.
Taking home silver medals were Ewing High School’s Jim Agdeppa and Angel Lima; as well as, Fisher’s Logan Abrams, Laimont Monard, and Sophia Swiderski. EHS student Saud Ahmad earned a bronze medal.
Rounding out the excellent performances were EHS’s Nagee McCrae with a fifth place finish and FMS’s Gianna Foreman with a fourth place finish. Athletes who placed in the top three advance to the State Sectional Tournament at Laurel Lanes in Maple Shade, New Jersey on March 11, 2017.
The Ewing Public Schools’ athletes T-shirts were adorned with the initials “LT” in honor and memory of Lauren Tenaglia who sadly passed away late last year. Tenaglia coached Special Olympics for many years.
“We are very proud of our athletes,” Coach Jesse Locket stated. “They bowled with poise and confidence, and represented themselves, their families, and the Ewing Public Schools exceptionally well. They are wonderful ambassador of our school community.”
