PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – Former University of Maryland Eastern Shore bowlers are still competing in national competitions, including an upcoming match in Illinois July 19-25.

The Bowling Proprietors' Association of America Women’s All Star Tournament will host many top female bowlers from around the nation, including former Hawk bowlers Megan Buja and Maria Rodriguez, who recently won $20,000 at the United States Bowling Congress Queens in Reno, Nev., officials say.

Buja, who won $500 and other prizes in the 3rd Annual Ladies Scratch Tournament recently near her hometown in Illinois, still competes in regional competitions along with former alumna Anggie Ramirez, according to UMES officials.

Ramirez just took second place in the Storm InsideBowling.com Open in St. Louis, Mo., falling short to Matt McNeil in the final, officials say. However, Ramirez is the first woman to make it into the finals of the open competition.

Ramirez also just won the city championship earlier in the month in her hometown of Bogota, Colombia, officials say. Next, she will go to Mexico to represent Colombia in an Olympic festival for bowling.

Both Rodriguez and Buja will be competing for $15,000 in first place price money in the upcoming tournament, according to officials.

Illinois will be the venue for two other competitions, including the Senior Women’s U.S. Open, during this time, UMES officials say. The events will host numerous professional female bowlers, including Brittni Hamilton, Shannon O’Keefe, Kelly Kulick, who Rodriguez defeated in Reno, along with numerous others.

The BPAA Tournament will start July 21, with qualifying rounds Monday through Wednesday, according to officials.
