When the final scores were tallied at May City Bowl on Nov. 11, team Emil’s Hideaway had rolled a city league record breaker.
Four of the five teammates are part of Mount Mercy University’s family. Head Bowling Coach Glenn Healy, his son and Mustang bowler Daniel Healy, Lead Groundskeeper Victor Kies, accelerated student Scot Reed, along with fellow community member Mike Palumbo rolled an incredible 1365, toppling the city league record by 44 pins.
“There’s a lot of outstanding talent in Cedar Rapids’ leagues,” said Coach Healy. “It’s quite an honor to play beside such skilled bowlers.”
Being part of a great team isn’t anything new for Mount Mercy staff or students. In the three years since bowling was added to the athletic roster, Mustang men and women have competed on the national stage, won titles and secured a sponsorship from popular industry brand Storm Products, Inc. in support of the teams’ continued success.
Mount Mercy extends congratulations to team Emil’s Hideaway and wishes them best of luck in future league play.
