Red Wolves Capture Gold in Guelph!

Five members of our Red Wolves qualified to participate in the SOO Provincial Spring Games in Guelph for 5 pin bowling - Carrie Crego, Robert Boccitto, Skylar Pratt, Jason Cochrane and Alyssa Whitaker. There were 900 athletes participating in this year's games. We are part of Central District. The team played 6 games and won each of those games. Ultimately winning team Gold. A second Red Wolves gold was achieved by Carrie Crego for taking top spot for women's overall pins over average score. It was a great event and a fun time was had by all.
