Anchorage’s Williams and Dudley bros are high rollers in college
Anchorage’s Logan Williams of Robert Morris University of Illinois qualified and then won his first bracket match at the U.S. Bowling Congress Intercollegiate Singles Championship in Dayton, Ohio.
The senior right-hander finished 12th in a 24-man qualifying round after he posted a six-game total of 1,200 pins (200 average).
The 24 men and 24 women earned spots in this event through sectional qualifying and used six games of qualifying to determine the bracket for match play. The top eight qualifiers received a first-round bye.
Williams, of Bartlett High fame, defeated Michael Pruchnik of St. Francis-Illinois 675-506 to advance in match play.
He will face No. 1 Alex Ouellette of Concordia in the next round.
Anchorage’s Ryan Dudley of Iowa Central Community College finished 24th in qualifying with a 998 total.
The freshman lost in the first-round of match play.
Ryan Dudley and his older brother Alec Dudley, both of Bartlett High fame, are the top bowlers at Iowa Central.
Just last month they teamed up to win the doubles championship at the NJCAA Championships in Cheektowaga, New York.
Alec Dudley’s 657 three-game series and Ryan Dudley’s 602 added up to a 1,259 pinfall and an 18-point win over the second-place team from Rock Valley.
Alec Dudley, a sophomore, seized both all-events category and also placed third in the singles division.
Iowa Central captured the NJCAA Championships team title for the second time since 2017 when Williams was with the team.
