Pair earn educational grants

The Grape Belt USBC Youth Bowling Association awarded two bowlers with the Bob Frame Memorial Educational Grants.

The grant is awarded to one graduating high school senior girl and boy, with the participants being members of the association.

Each participant had to complete an entry form, bowl six games – three at Lucky Lanes and three at K & L Lanes – and take a written test based on the sport of bowling. Applicants were awarded points for their years of participation in the association, their improvements in average and participation in their local program and tournaments. Bowlers were also awarded points based on each three-game set bowled and their test score.

Danielle Lesefski of Gowanda was awarded a $750 grant as this year’s female recipient. She is a member of the K & L Junior Bowlers and was also a member of the Gowanda High School girls’ varsity bowling team. Lesefski is a 2014 graduate of Gowanda High School.

The male recipient this year is Collin Schanzlin of Fredonia. Schanzlin was also awarded a $750 grant and is a member of the Lucky Lanes Junior Bowlers. Schanzlin also competed for the Fredonia Hillbillies’ boys’ varsity bowling team and is a 2014 graduate from Fredonia High School.
