Freshman Joseph Salierno turned in an outstanding individual performance, knocking down 1071 total pins, as the Westchester Community College Men’s Bowling team concluded the 2018 season at the USBC Collegiate Sectionals in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
After a terrific team season that included a second-place finish at the NJCAA Region XV Championships, and a 12th place finish at the NJCAA National Championships, Salierno and company ended the campaign on a strong note with a great performance against a field that included NCAA Division I, II, and III programs, along with several strong NJCAA entries.
Salierno’s best game was a 212 during the third game, and the rookie broke 170 pins during four out of five games, finishing only 22 pins out of the top-100.
Also for Westchester, Matthew Rice finished 164th with 937 total pins, and Michael Matthews ended his season with 889 total pins, good for a 169th place finish.
