Young adds to bowling superlatives

Albany High School senior Jahlil Young added to an exceptional varsity career Feb. 12 by becoming the first member of the Falcons bowling team to qualify for the state tournament in at least two decades.

 

Young, whose resume already included a perfect game in his junior season, rolled a six-game series of 1,258 in the Section II Class A tournament at Boulevard Bowl in Schenectady. He finished among the top six individuals out of 320 bowlers competing at all levels in Section II.

 

His high game of 269 also was the high game out of all 100 competitors in the Class A tournament.

 

The state bowling tournament is March 10 in Syracuse.

 

“I am extremely proud of Jahlil for reaching his goal of making it to the state tournament,” said coach Nancy Madsen said. “I have had the pleasure of coaching him the last six years and have watched him grow and mature as a bowler and a student-athlete. He is a natural leader in his own quiet way to all his teammates.

 

“He has worked extremely hard to improve his game and I am so happy all his time and effort has paid off with a trip to the state tournament. He is such a gentleman and very well-deserving of this honor to be representing Albany High School at this event.”

 

Young led the Falcons to a fifth-place finish in Class A, also the team’s top sectional finish in at least two decades, Madsen said.

 

Delon Dean had a six-game total of 1,175, followed by Jedrek Arasim (1,152) and Eliza Arasim (1,026). Michael McNeil rolled a 530 three-game series, and Philip Stone added a 516 three-game series.

 

“I am very proud of our entire team for their amazing performance (at sectionals),” Madsen said. “To finish in the top five of the Class A sectionals is a tremendous feat. This team worked hard together and kept grinding throughout the day.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to work in partnership with our diverse community to engage every learner in a robust educational program designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for success. The district serves about 9,600 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
