Sophomore Angelo Ferrigno is a member of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas bowling team. Ferrigno was announced as a member of the 2023–2024 Sun Sentinel second team on Dec. 23. “I am super excited to be apart of Sun Sentinel; it shows how far I came as a bowler,” Ferrigno said. “And I like to show other people my skills.”

Sophomore Angelo Ferrigno’s bowling season continues with another success

The Sun Sentinel Honors were successfully announced for Broward County Schools for the first and second teams of bowling. The Sun Sentinel is a local newspaper publication in Deerfield Beach, Florida. At the end of every year, they highlight the top high school athletes in South Florida.

Sophomore Angelo Ferrigno was named to represent the second team for Sun Sentinel bowling for Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Saturday, Dec. 23.

Ferrigno is the first bowler on the MSD bowling team. The first bowler is the starter bowler of the game who gets the points all scored up and leads his team in the right direction for the rest of the game. Ferrigno achieved his biggest accomplishment of the year by getting a series of a total of 687 in three games playing for the MSD bowling team and winning bowling matches.

Ferrigno’s goal is to be announced as a top athlete, and it was achieved when he was named for the second team in South Florida.

“I am super happy that I was announced for the newspaper publication,” Ferrigno said. “I didn’t know how big of a deal it was until my coach told me.”

During the bowling season, Ferrigno and the team would practice each week at Sawgrass Lanes. Practices were held on Mondays and Wednesdays each week at 4 p.m. at Bowlero in Tamarac by the MSD bowling team.

Besides being on the MSD bowling team, Ferrigno joined the AMF Juniors Practice League in Margate at the beginning of 2022. Ferrigno practices four days a week, leading up to each bowling game. Each practice will last as long as an hour to three hours, depending on how much time Ferrigno needs to practice.

“I feel so honored that I got chosen for the Sun Sentinel bowling second team in the sport that I enjoy playing,’’ Ferrigno said. “It shows all my hard work has paid off and shows what I have accomplished as a bowler.”

Ferrigno always wanted to be like his parents growing up, as they were bowlers themselves; they would teach his strategies for bowling at a young age to compete and practice bowling and all the important components of bowling. As he grew up, he knew what sport he would want to do and pursue as he got older.

“My family are my biggest supporters, and I look up to them every day as they were bowlers themselves,” Ferrigno said. “They have shown me everything, and I thank them every day.”

Ferrigno hopes to continue his future in bowling, and he wishes to go further in the competitive field of bowling as he gets older and possibly after high school. So far, Ferrigno has enjoyed playing for the MSD bowling team and will continue through the next two years.
