A source on the state board reported to me that David Umbrello, a bowler currently out of AMF Auburn Lanes, was recently elected to the Mass. state association Hall of Fame. Umbrello, who came out of the Boston Youth League organization, has since been a dedicated Worcester County bowler, having co-owned Bowler’s Edge Pro Shop at AMF Town & Country Lanes in Shrewsbury, and has several tournament titles, including a state tournament doubles title in 2013 and all-events and doubles titles in the Lilac City Tournament in 1994. David also held the house record (869) at Gardner Ten Pin for 10 years and has over 60 300 games and 35 800 series. He had also been involved with the Gardner youth program, also having started the high school bowling program there.
David will be inducted during the opening ceremony of the state tournament next month in Gardner.
