(Ann Arbor, MI) Concordia University is proud to announce the signing of Bay City's Alex Ouellette for the 2017 bowling season. Before signing at Concordia, Alex attended Delta College for two years and received an Associate's Degree.
Alex comes to Concordia with a bowling resume that is astonishing. While bowling for Bay City John Glenn High School, Alex was a Regional Champion in 2012 and 2014 as well as a runner-up finish in 2013. At the MHSAA State Bowling Tournament, he was State Champion in 2014 as well as being runner-up in 2013. In 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015, he was the City All Events Champion and averaged a record breaking 244 for the 2016-17 season. In 2014, Alex was awarded the title of "Mr. Bowler" and was a member of the Detroit Free Press Dream Team.
Alex has competed in the Michigan Junior Masters Tournaments (MJMA) for several years. The MJMA was designed to give high school bowlers competitive events to improve their skills and prepare them for collegiate competition while competing under the most difficult lane conditions. Alex has taken full advantage of this and has had much success. To this point, he has won 7 of these events including the last 4 he has competed in and was awarded Player of the Year in 2015. Alex has recorded 14 300 games, 9 800 series with a high series of 837.
With all these accolades, Alex's most prided moments still remain with his special needs sister Danielle who is the main focal point in his life. "My sister has changed my life. She is the reason I started bowling and I will never be able to thank her enough for that. While some days it is not easy for her, she always inspires me and I am always there to help her. I truly consider myself to be the luckiest brother ever".
Coach Spicer had this to say about his new recruit. "I have known and watched Alex for many years and watched him grow as a bowler, but it has just been in recent months that I have seen another side of him. He is one of the most grounded and humble individuals I have ever met. Although his bowling is a love of his life, his desire to always put family and friends first is what impresses me the most".
