The William Floyd varsity bowling team participated in their third straight Suffolk Championship on Saturday at Bowlero in Sayville, facing off against the best teams in the county for a shot at the title. The Colonials put up a valiant battle, but ultimately fell short in a match against Rocky Point. The championship tournament concludes a successful 9-3 regular season, in which the team, coached by James Healey and led by senior Anthony Delgado, finished in third place in League IV.
“I have a group of kids that are incredibly dedicated,” said Coach Healey. “They play seven days a week all year round. It’s no coincidence that they made it to the championship because they worked hard all year. They deserved it.”
The outlook for next season looks promising as most of the team will be returning except for three graduating seniors – Anthony Delgado, Nikolis Koutrokois and Gary Roth. Coach Healey believes that he has a great core of youth who are looking to keep the momentum going and are hungry for a return to the county championship and possibly more.
Congratulations to team members Anthony Delgado, Sabrina Arocho, Matthew Delgado, Matthew Gambina, Alexander Hope, Nikolis Koutrokois, Kyle Laspisa, Juan Madera, Louis Parrinello, Alexander Ramoska, Gary Roth, and Erin Tumbrello on a great year of bowling and Coach Healey for guiding these student athletes to a successful season.
