On February 26, UM supporters, families and guests got their chance to rub elbows with Miami Hurricane greats in the UMSHoF's 7th annual Celebrity Bowling Tournament.
“Last year was my first time participating and it went so well,” explained event host and Hurricane hero Albert Bentley. “This tournament supports all the University sports programs and gives kids opportunity.
For that, I’m here all day long.” Bentley was excited to spend the evening among UM sports legends that came before and after him.
UM graduate Wendy Allen, part of the Triplets Team, had on her own turnover chain while she bowled with three generations of her family and so many Hurricane Hall of Fame players. “We’re here to beat everyone in the place! …and to raise some important funds.”
“It’s a great way to celebrate the accomplishments so many UM players have made over the years,” added UM Athletic Director Blake James. “The Hall of Fame does such a great job bringing everyone together from the school, the community, fans and all these Hall of Famers.
Besides fun, the evening did have its share of friendly competition. Event host Albert Bentley joins the winning bowler John Lancaster and UMSHoFbowling chairman Gerard Loisel to claim his Top Guest Bowler trophy.
