Bowling announces recruits for 2021-22 – Duquesne University Athletics

PITTSBURGH – Head coach Jody Fetterhoff announced Morgan Brookover (Parkersburg, W.Va.) and Ranelle Ulanday (Union, Ky.) as the two newest members of the bowling program.

“We are very excited to have Ranelle and Morgan join us next year!” said Fetterhoff. “It was very clear to all of us early on in the recruiting process how well they fit our team. Not only do they have a lot of experience and success in big tournaments, they also do the little things that make them so important to their peers. We are very lucky to have Ranelle and Morgan and their families join us and are really looking forward to next season!”

Duquesne, who is just in his fifth year as a program, finished in the Top 12 in his first NCAA Championship appearance in April. The Dukes return six of eight bowlers, including three-time All-American Olivia Farwell who missed last season due to injury – from last year’s eleventh team.
