Michigan’s high school bowling community cheered Holly graduate Andrew Anderson as an MHSAA champion in 2013.
Now, it can celebrate him as a “master.”
Anderson bested a 360-bowler field to win his first Professional Bowlers Association Tour championship Sunday, finishing first at the United States Bowling Congress Masters in Syracuse, N.Y. The Masters is considered a major tournament on the PBA Tour schedule.
After completing qualifying, Anderson was one of 64 competitors to make the match play. He downed Alex Hoskins of Brigham, Utah, 213-199 in the championship match. Click to read more from USBC.
Anderson returned to Holly’s bowling team for the final six weeks of his senior season after previously making the match play at the MHSAA Finals as a freshman and advancing the quarterfinals as a sophomore. He won his Division 2 championship match as a senior by 112 pins. (Click for coverage of that 2013 tournament from Second Half.)
Anderson attends Davenport University and is in his first year as a member of Team USA. He also bowled three years as part of Junior Team USA.
