Bowler Spina Signs with Arkansas

High school senior and star bowler Julianna Spina signed a national letter of intent on Dec. 13, committing to Arkansas State University. Girls varsity bowling coach Harold Cooley and Athletic Director Stephen Restivo were in attendance to congratulate Spina, along with her family.

While bowling for the Red Wolves, Spina plans to major in biology and chemistry. A member of East Islip’s National Honor Society and Foreign Language Honor Society, she will graduate in the top 10 percent of her class. As an athlete, she earned All-State, All-County and All-League status, was a key member of the state champion team, and was the 2017-2018 Suffolk County Match Play winner at 29-1. She bowled a 754 series with the Lady Redmen, the highest in the county at the time.

“Julianna is one of the hardest working and most dedicated student-athletes you will find,” said Cooley. “She puts 100 percent of herself into everything she does, both in and out of school, thus putting her at the top of the list in both categories. I'm proud to be her coach and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
