-D'Errico Is 2003 Male Star

01/03/2003 - Bowling Newsline
      Demonstrating exceptional achievement in bowling, education and community involvement, Marc D'Errico of Rochester, N.Y., was recently named the 2003 Chuck Hall Star of Tomorrow.

      D'Errico already has amassed an impressive bowling record at the local, state and national level.

      The 20-year-old junior at the University of Kansas currently competes on KU's bowling team. He was named the team's most valuable player in 2002 and was named KU rookie of the year in 2001.

      In 2002, he finished second at the Battle at Little Creek Youth Masters and was a member of the all-tournament team in the Blue and Gold Collegiate Tournament. In 2001, he was a member of the all-tournament team at the Colgate Collegiate Invitational.

      Among his other accomplishments are winning one bronze and three silver medals in the 2000 Empire State Games and was a member of the Rochester Young American Bowling Alliance All-Star Team in 1998, 1999 and 2000.

      "Bowling has been a passion for me since I started watching my parents bowl in league as a kid," D'Errico said. "My involvement in bowling has opened a lot of doors for me. I feel very fortunate to be able to combine my interest in bowling with my collegiate experience."

      A psychology major, D'Errico has won numerous scholarships from KU including the David C. Anderson Journalism Scholarship, Crimson and Blue Scholarship and the Whittaker Leadership Scholarship.

      He also received the 2002 Bowling Writers' Association of America Media Scholarship and the Professional Bowlers Association Al Thompson Jr. Scholarship in 2000.

      A BWAA member, D'Errico covered bowling in the Rochester area and was a contributor to the Greater Rochester Bowler publication.

      In Rochester, he organized the Rochester YABA Youth Leader chapter and served as its president from 1995-2000 and also organized and conducted YABA Youth Leader tournaments.

      Sponsored by the American Bowling Congress, the Chuck Hall award recognizes star attributes in a male high school senior or college student who competes in bowling. Award winners receive a $1,250 scholarship, which is renewable up to three years for a total of $5,000.

      D'Errico will be presented his award March 14 during ABC's Convention at the Knoxville (Tenn.) Convention Center.
