The WIAA girls golf postseason - 1 day down, the weather
And three local teams are moving on in Division 1.
Let's swing em.
Onalaska's Syndey Hubbard -- the top player in the

UW-La Crosse club bowling is back on campus this fall.
And the team's makeup is a little different than what
you may expect.
And the Eagles roster includes one of the top youth
bowlers in the country.
UW-La Crosse Senior Ben Polzin is the reason this
absoutely' when alumni and former Eagle bowler Scott
Dunnum asked if it was time to bring the program back.
We are working hard to get as much funding as possible
so we can get these kids out, get them the expereince
and once they leave college, they should have a skill
set to go compete on their own.
What the team didn't expect in year 1:
The addition of one of the top youth bowlers in all
of the United States:
Coach Dunnum's 18-year old son Jacob.
A Central high school grad..
Who this summer placed 5th out of a field of 1,500
plus at the Junior Gold Nationals in Indianapolis.

A moment that Jacob wasn't prepared for is the reason
he's not bowling at a big time program.
Last Thanksgiving, Jacob's grandma Diane passed away
from complications during surgery.
Shorlty after, he departed from powerhouse UW-Whitewater
for a chance to team up back home with his dad.
She would have been so happy.
She would have been very proud of me.
Due to transfer rules, Jacob is set to sit out this
The training however, continues.
Jacob is talented beyond all beliefe.
He is beyond his years as far as experience and knowledge
The chance arrives January in Las Vegas.
Six or so make the cut.
A step up from -- the club team.
My next goal is to make the junior team USA, which
would be incredible.
It would be an awesome opportunity.
