The Huron boys won 7 out of 10 tournaments this year including the State Division 2 Title. They were also just honored at the State Capital.
The Huron High School state champ bowling team were invited to Lansing Tuesday by State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township).
“I was honored to host the champions of Huron’s bowling team here at the Capitol this week as they celebrated their state championship,” Camilleri said.
“It is always terrific to see the youth in our community achieve success; and in the world of high school sports, there is nothing greater than bringing home a state championship for your school. I’m so proud of this tremendous group for their hard work and dedication to their team and I hope this victory serves as a reminder for them of the greatness that lies within each and every one of them.”
