The Alexandria adapted bowling team wrapped up a memorable season by handing out its team awards recently.
Justin Hanson-Simmons took home the award for the highest series bowled by a male after rolling a 486 earlier this year. McKenzi Klimek earned the same award in the female division with a 512. That award put the finishing touches on a season that saw Klimek win the CI Singles state championship and a team state title with David Madison, Jared McDonagh and Dane Bellefeuille.
Gideon Hartsell won the award for most “turkeys” during the season. He rolled three straight strikes at five different times this year. Patrick Takeda reached that same mark with five straight spares at one point.
The Cardinals were dominant at this year’s state tournament. Tayler Mayer finished second in the female singles division behind Klimek. Jack Botzet won the PI singles male state championship, while Jon Klein and Rauscher were second in the CI doubles division.
