Aussies Applaud Kelly Kulick’s Election to USBC Hall of Fame

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

Australian coaches and bowlers have joined the international bowling community in applauding the announcement that American bowling champion, Kelly Kulick will soon be inducted into the USBC Hall of Fame.

The 2019 induction ceremony will take place on 1st May as part of the USBC Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As the first woman to win a PBA Tour title, Kulick inked her name indelibly in the sport’s history books and is an inspiration to females here and overseas who aspire to join the sport’s professional circuit.

The 41 year-old American bowling champion from Union Township, New Jersey, has an international medal career spanning almost two decades and is a regular visitor to Australia to help upskill Australia’s emerging bowling talent.

Just hours after the announcement of her Hall of Fame election, Kulick added another special milestone to her resumé by winning the 2019 USBC Team USA Trials.  She outlasted a record field of 152 women in a five-day test of versatility on five lane conditions at the Gold Coast Bowling Centre in Las Vegas.

Kulick has conducted clinics and development camps in Queensland and other States for several years and will return to Australia next month to carry out clinics in Victoria and Tasmania.
