PITTSBURGH-Community College of Allegheny County North Campus bowlers are on a roll. Earlier this month, Bruno Staniszewski bowled a 300-the first perfect score for the CCAC North Campus Bowling team. The Liberal Arts major achieved this rare feat at a Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference (WPCC) bowling match held at the Main Bowling Center in Greensburg, where the crowd erupted in cheers as he rolled his 12th strike in a row. Staniszewski, 18, of Shaler, previously bowled a perfect game recreationally but never before in a competition.

He went on to compete last week in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XX Championship, also held at the Greensburg bowling center. Bruno finished ninth out of 20 competitors in the All Events category with a 179.9 average, about 10 points below his usual average of 190. His next competition is the NJCAA Bowling Championship held February 25th to 27th in Buffalo, N.Y., where he will compete against community college students from all over the country. 

Also competing in the NJCAA Bowling Championship will be a North Campus Women's Doubles team composed of Psychology major Danielle Romitz and Early Childhood Education major Lyndsey Nickel. The women, also from Shaler, finished second in the Women's Doubles competitions at both the WPCC match and the NJCAA Region XX Championship. Competing individually at the regional championship, Romitz finished fifth in Women's Singles and fourth in All Events with a 164.4 average; Nickel finished fifth in All Events with a 154.8 average.

CCAC North Campus Athletic Director Chuck Bell has high expectations for the athletes, anticipating that all of them will finish among the top 20 to 25 contenders at nationals. For more information, contact Bell at 412.369.3725 or cbell@ccaac.edu.
