Wit, skill and tradition were the themes of the sixth annual Alumni Bowling Tournament held Jan. 23 at Scorz Sports Center in Ralston, Neb. Ten four-person teams consisting of alumni, faculty, staff and guests participated in this year’s competition, sporting innovative team names and costumes for the event.
Carla Dirkschneider (‘07) and her team, The Incredibowls, took home four of the six event prizes: Best Team Costume, Best Team Name, Grand Champion Team and Highest Men’s Combined (three-game) Score earned by teammate Matt Anderson. Over the past six years, Dirkschneider has led her team to three Grand Champion Team wins, competing heavily with another three-time Grand Champion Team led by Sarah Sobotka. The 2017 Alumni Bowling Tournament will be a nail-biting face-off between the two battling teams.
Joan Blum (’81, ’86, ‘01) and her team, Gutter Guards, welcomed their sixth victory as the event’s
Last Place Champions. Alumna Melissa Youmans (’14) of the Bi-Polar Rollers earned the Highest
Women’s Combined Score for the night.
