They've been bowled over
The Kinnickinnic Kids Special Olympics team are finishing up another successful bowling season. The bowling team consists of 20 athletes from River Falls, Hudson, New Richmond and surrounding areas.
This year 15 athletes attended the regional tournament in Eau Claire; eight qualified for the sectional tournament also in Eau Claire and four are moving on to the State tournament being held on Saturday, 12/1 in Weston.
The team practices at St. Croix Lanes in River Falls on Thursday afternoons and Sunday mornings.

Back row: coach Stephanie Glowe, Jesse Peterson (state qualifier), Kyle Glowe, Kyle Johnson (state qualifier), Nick Ebben (state qualifier), coach Nancy C. Johnson, and last but not least, Troy Dostal, manager at St. Croix Lanes who provides our lane scores and fixes lane issues every Sunday.
