The competition was the first for the Bruins since early March as the team was forced to miss its two final regular season events due to quarantine. The finish places KCC in fourth place regionally and in the conference heading into the national tournament in April.

“We are very excited about Kelsey Kipp’s regional singles championship,” Head KCC Bowling Coach Brad Morgan said. “The team fought back after a slow start and had a strong Baker game set to solidify their fourth place finish.”

The Bruins will finish the season back in Lansing at the NJCAA National Championship Tournament beginning April 7. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, no spectators will be allowed.
