Zimmerman Leads County All-Stars to State Bowling Title


High school athlete Adam Zimmerman helped lead the Suffolk County All-State boys bowling team to a state title for the fourth consecutive year. At the NYSPHSAA Bowling Championships, held March 2 in West Babylon’s Babylon Lanes, the team overcame a deficit of 390 pins after three games of play, coming back to win by 169, a 559-pin swing in the second half of the tournament.

A member of Deer Park’s varsity bowling team since seventh grade, Zimmerman held the high average in Suffolk County for the second year in a row with a 241.8 average. This year, he bowled 10 sanctioned 300 games and six 800 series, and was named high school singles champion at the Suffolk County Singles Doubles Tournament.

Zimmerman has won over $5,000 in scholarship money this year, with a total of more than $40,000 in scholarship monies earned to date, and plans to attend either Weber International University in Florida or McKendree University in St. Louis on a bowling scholarship.
