February 2022 

Congratulations to Ellie Kate Murray the Bowl4Life Eileen's Bowling Buddy February Athlete of the Month!
 
Age: 7
Location: Orlando, FL
Coach/Home Center: Mike Sealy/Boardwalk Bowl
 
Ellie Kate is a 7-year-old who loves the sport of bowling. She is the youngest ever to medal in an SYC and has 4 total medals from 2 separate events. At the last SYC she competed in Orlando, she had an accident tripping over a bowling bag. It shattered her finger which resulted in surgery. She will never fully regain use of that finger and will have multiple surgeries in the future to continue to repair. Just three days post-surgery, she was begging to get back on the lanes, even if she could only throw a 6lb ball one-handed even though she typically throws a 12lb ball two-handed. She worked hard to be able to compete one-handed during her recovery time and even competed in a few events one-handed. Then seven weeks post-surgery, she was brave enough to attempt two-handed again! She is getting stronger every day and she is getting ready for Junior Gold this summer.

Congratulations to the Bowl4Life Eileens Bowling Buddies January 2022 Athlete of the Month - Juliana Kerrigan!

Age: 16
Location: Ashland, VA
Current Coach/Home Center: Patrick Kerrigan/Bowlero Mechanicsville
 
Juliana started bowling a little more than 5 years ago and really started doing it more competitively 3 years ago. She got her bowling passion from her dad and ever since then has worked hard and competed at some of the highest levels of bowling with her dad and a few others coaching her along the way. She is a great student along with being a great athlete, excelling at school with a 4.0 GPA. She is a Junior this year and is starting to look at potential colleges to attend. She hopes to attend college and become an accountant along with continuing her bowling career in college and later on the PWBA tour. She’s a great student, daughter, and big sister to her siblings. She’s always been a caring soul and always has the greatest attitude.
 
She has attended many competitive bowling competitions from the likes of Junior Gold, Storm Youth Championships, Mid Atlantic Tournaments, the Danny Wiseman Tournaments, Tough Shots Tour, 12 Bagger, PBA Jr, and many other tournaments small and large. She has grown her career and managed to finish very well at multiple tournaments throughout her youth. She captured two 12 bagger titles, 1 tough shot title, and finished 16th overall at her very first Junior Gold tournament in the U15 division. Along with receiving a slew of other accolades in local tournaments around her hometown.
 
Keep working hard and continue to carry that caring soul with you Juliana. We can't wait to see where you continue to grow in your bowling!
