Four area athletes finished at the top of the charts in the 2010 Special Olympics Wisconsin Fall Sports bowling tournament Saturday, Dec. 4 at the Center Court Sports Complex and AMF Bowlero Lanes in Milwaukee and Dale's Weston Lanes in Wausau.

Brian Smith, Monticello, finished third place in bowling. Alex Rowan took fourth in bowling.

Michael Scheidegger, Juda, finished fifth in bowling and Lisa Moore, Monroe, was sixth in bowling.

There were nearly 800 Special Olympics athletes who struck down bowling pins and spiked volleyballs during the 2010 Special Olympics Wisconsin Fall Sports Tournament.

Milwaukee has hosted this state competition for the past 30 years while Wausau hosted the first annual Northern State Bowling Tournament this year to accommodate the wildly popular sport. The Fall Sports Tournament is just one of five state athletic competitions, which serves 18 different sports, occurring throughout the year for the 10,000 athletes inWisconsin.

Athletes qualified for the Fall Sports Tournament state games based on their performance at the local, regional or district tournaments.

The tournament took place just a day after MedFest, a free health screening given by volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, residents, and other healthcare volunteers to nearly 100 current and prospective Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI) athletes at the Tommy Thompson Youth Center in Milwaukee.
