The KU men's bowling team captured the largest regular season tournament of the year (54 teams) when they won the Hoosier Classic February 17 & 18 in Indianapolis. The top eight teams after nine games advance to a match play finals, best three out of five baker games. KU finished 5th and opened match play by beating Illinois. They then defeated Wichita State to move into the finals against. . . Florida State!

It was a very impressive performance by a KU team that has had some tough times this year. I was very proud to see how well they bowled under pressure at this very difficult tournament.

Senior Trent Overbey was high average for the team and was the Individual champion of the tournament!. I will post numbers and averages when I get them.

Congratulations to Jesse, Justin and the team for showing great determination and Jayhawk spirit! Shake and Bake!

Mike

Our bowling team is a perennial powerhouse.

And it's the last KU team to win a National Championship.

Good job, keglers.

Hail,

Thanks, we have had a good year down here. It was a real thrill to first make the finals, but then run into KU. It is always great to see Jesse and the guys, but it was a very special way to end a tournament! They had a great run on Sunday and earned everything they achieved!

It was almost as much fun as watching the basketball game last night!

Go Hawks!
Mike

I think we talked about this scenario when you where in St. Louis over Thanksgiving. I can only imagine the emotions you were going through.

Congrats to our boys and your boys!

Did another LCD TV show up at the house while you were gone?

No, LCD's but we did have the home theater guy out while I was gone. It sound great!

The KU guys were on a roll Sunday, they were not going to lose to anyone!

Thanks
Mike

Hey Mike,

Andy was a member of that 15th place Husker team. He has had a rough go.............Big All State Stud turned "Freshman spare tire". He has struggled to deal with it, but their player coach got suspended at the UNO invite for kickin' the machine, so now Andy is in there. Unfortunately the player coach is more player than coach. SO..................I may go over and coach next year. I am ready for this.......am about ready to retire from the AF, and frankly, am looking for a little excitement! Good to see your Seminoles and the Hawks duelin' it out! I saw the KU kids in Omaha.......recognized the Dilley kid, but the rest were new to me. Hope to see you at the sectionals as I plan on being there..........whereever that will be!

Peace Be With You.

Brad Steadman
