Milan’s little bowlers keep on winning.  Entering the John Berci Memorial Youth Singles Tournament on February 21 at Merri-Bowl Lanes in Livonia Sophia Holmes and Rachel Peladeau took second and third place.
 Peladeau attends Symons Elementary School and Holmes is a middle school student.  They competed in the Girls under 12 category making Milan Big Red proud.
 This isn’t the first time Peladeau has placed as a second-year bowler from Maplewood Lanes in Saline.  Holmes is a first-year bowler that did a great job at Maplewood with her highest score to date of 161, while she carries an average of only 78.  
Both girls received scholarship points for their win.  The United States Bowling Association awards points that can be used as dollars, when the girls commit to a college upon high school graduation.  All bowlers who place in a tournament receive points.
The girls and fellow team bowlers, Samantha Ruff a seventh-grade middle school student, and Dana Philein a student at Symons, will attend a state tournament in Bay City on the weekend of April 9.  The competition is open to all Michigan bowlers, who registered on time.
