Enumclaw bowling team wins big at Special Olympics

Enumclaw’s Special Olympics bowling team brought home a pile of gold, silver and bronze medals from the regional tournament Nov. 6 at Secoma Lanes in Federal Way.

An enthusiastic crowd of Enumclaw families and fans cheered on their athletes with pom poms and signs, proving to be one of the loudest groups at the event.

This year, the team welcomed a masters group of bowling athletes, 21 and older. All the practice – three to four times a week at Daffodil Bowl in Puyallup – paid off as Elise Skovmand, Amy McHugh, Liz Muma and Tina Bundy captured gold in their initial outing. Sharon Fugate earned a silver medal as part of the group.

The junior unified teams bowled to eight gold medals, 11 silvers and four bronze, while the all-athlete team picked up four bronze awards.

In all, 37 athletes and peer mentors participated from Enumclaw under the direction of 13 coaches.
