Great job by the three St. Paul bowling teams who participated in the CIAC State Bowling Team Tournament! We received many compliments (which included a phone call to Mr. Dennehy from the director of the tournament praising our teams, families and community for our efforts), about the team’s skills, their sportsmanship and the fun our students demonstrated through the day! How our students and coaches carried themselves and supported one another did not go unnoticed.
