LIVONIA, Mich. – The Madonna University men's bowling team, led by second year head coach Brian Bressler, have added four key recruits that were some of the best the state of Michigan has to offer and should help propel the Crusaders onto the NAIA bowling scene in year two of the program.

"It was a challenging first season, but the team learned a lot and improved throughout the season," said Bressler. "These four young men have consistently been some of the best bowlers in the state throughout their prep careers and I expect them to come in and compete for starting spots right away. I'm excited for what this group can do for our team."
