(December 4, 2022 6:12 PM) It was head coach against assistant coach in the final of the Alro Steel Open bowling tournament on Sunday at JAX 60.
Spring Arbor University head bowling Coach Rich Bradley faced SAU assistant Coach Brady Colip in the stepladder final.
Colip won the matchup against Bradley 237-201 to earn his first major bowling title in Jackson.
He was the top qualifier with a 240.5 average for six games on Saturday, but struggled a bit in match play falling to fourth place in the five-player stepladder.
The Purdue University graduate defeated Caleb Tate 258-236 in the opening round, defeated Cory Hines 223-205 in the second round, won 223-193 against Nick French in the semifinal, and won his fourth match in the stepladder over Bradley.
Colip earned $800 and a trophy for the victory and $50 for being the top qualifier.
