September 19, 2019 – The Mount St. Mary's women's bowling team will celebrate the start of the 2019-20 season with their Second Annual Season Kickoff Fundraiser on September 28 at Sunshine Lanes in Waynesboro, Pa.
The event occurs just two weeks before competition begins, marking the start of their second season as an NCAA Division 1 program. In their 2018-19 inaugural season, the Mount put college bowling on notice, earning a spot in the NTCA top-25 poll and placing runner-up in a competitive Northeast Conference that boasts six nationally ranked teams.
"I said it before and I will say it again, the support for women's bowling here at the Mount is unlike anything I have ever seen before," said head coach Kenneth DeGraaf. "We have earned the respect and following of the Mount community and this event serves as a great chance for our team to interact with our biggest supporters. Our ladies have been working relentlessly in preparation for the 2019-20 season, so this will be a nice change of pace to celebrate the start of our season with those who support our program."
Attending participants will be able to meet and bowl with the team. Activities include three games of cosmic glow-in-the-dark bowling (shoes included), music, raffle prizes, pizza, drinks for guests 21 and up, and more! The registration fee is $30.00 online or $40.00 the day of at the door. Children will be admitted at $10.00 each, which includes one game of bowling, pizza, soft drinks, and a coloring station. All proceeds will directly benefit the Mount Bowling program.
