Daily’s Juicers Focusing on Defending the Title
Old Timers Looking to “Climbing the Stairway to 'Seventh’ Heaven'
Mean Four Overdue for Third Trophy

The Chancellor's Cup, emblematic of bowling supremacy at Penn State New Kensington, is up for grabs once again as campus students, faculty and staff test their mettle in the annual event to determine the best bowlers on campus.

The cup currently resides with Daileys’ Juicers, a staff-affiliated team of Bill Christy, Mike Hopf, Carl Arabia and Mike Digirolamo. Last year, the Juicers shed their “bridesmaid” mantle and won their first cup by knocking off six-time champions Old Timers. The exhiled kings vow to reclaim the throne. Also in the championship mix is Mean Four. The all-women team captured the title in 2004 and 2008. They are overdue for notching their name on a third trophy.

The intramural tournament is held in conjunction with the Alle-Kiski Society's 11th annual alumni bowl-a-thon from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 7, at the Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell, Pa. The bowl-a-thon is the alumni group's major fundraiser in the spring, and the proceeds support the society's endowed scholarship and campus projects. Lane sponsorships are available for $50 and $100.

For information, contact Bill Woodard, 724-334-6049 or uxw1@psu.edu via email. For more on the bowl-a-thon and to download the registration and lane sponsorship form, go to http://www.nk.psu.edu/Alumni/alumorg.htm online.
