Kenosha’s Lennie Boresch Jr. will be defending a gold medal in Munich, Germany, this week.
Boresch, 55, is one of four men and four women representing the United States at the 2017 World Senior Bowling Championships, which begin Monday with official practices and opening ceremonies and conclude Sunday with medal presentations and closing ceremonies.
Boresch — a United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer — is joined by fellow Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., as well as PBA50 Tour standouts Bob Learn Jr. of Erie, Pa., and Ron Mohr of North Las Vegas on the men’s team.
Boresch, Learn and Mohr were part of the team that won gold in the last World Senior Bowling Championships, which were held in Las Vegas in 2015. The U.S. women’s team also won gold. This year’s teams were selected by the Team USA coaching staff in May.
“I’m honored and privileged to be chosen to represent Team USA,” Boresch said in a text from Germany on Saturday. “Especially to bowl along (with) these Hall of Famers and bowling legends. Hopefully (we’ll) bring home some gold!”
The event also includes singles, doubles, Masters and all-events in addition to the team competition. A live scoring link is available at bowling-wm.de.
In 2015, Boresch won silver medals in the all-events and Masters competitions, a bronze in doubles and finished seventh in singles.
Boresch, who has won a record 10 Men’s Division titles in the Kenosha News Match Game Tournament, wrapped up his PBA50 Tour season by finishing 32nd in the DeHayes Insurance Group Championship in Fort Wayne, Ind., last week.
He won the UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl in the Villages — his third PBA50 Tour title — in late April and posted five other top-10 finishes. That included a 10th-place showing at the Miller Lite Players Championship in May.
Boresch cashed in all…
