York's Brenneman earns conference tournament honors in bowling
Kutztown University freshman Madison Brenneman of York has been named to the 2023 East Coast Conference Women's Bowling Championship All-Tournament Team.
Brenneman, a Central York graduate, led the Golden Bears to a third-place finish at this year's championship tournament, which concluded March 26. Kutztown was the lone team to post a 5-0 record in qualifying matches. The team earned the second seed in the double-elimination, best-of-seven Baker format.
After dropping the opening match to Molloy, Kutztown fought back to within a match of the championship before falling to Molloy again.
Brenneman posted the highest Baker frame average (19.82) for Kutztown. She also led the team with a 84.5% overall fill percentage, 54 strikes and a 78.7% makeable spare percentage across 110 frames.
A year ago, Brenneman helped lead Central York to the Pennsylvania state championship in its first official season as a program. The Panthers returned to the state tournament this year and posted a fifth-place finish. Brenneman's sister, Kamryn, also qualified for states as an individual.
Other bowlers named to the ECC All-Tournament Team include Paige Bartosz and Mollie Gizicki of Daemen and Samantha Strebel and Haley Youker of Mercyhurst.
