BRIGHAM CITY, Utah – Storm Products is proud to announce that Victoria Varano is the third athlete to be named to the Evolution Staff Team through the Evolution Program. This position reserved for a small number of exceptional youth players who represent the future of the sport. The first two athletes who were chosen for this program were Spencer Robarge and Jillian Martin.

“This program is designed to connect the top athletes with our team as they work towards their goals to compete professionally in the sport one day in the future,” Gary Hulsenberg, VP of Business Development said.  “In addition, they have the ability to connect with other young athletes and share the positive impact bowling has had on their lives.”

Victoria Varano has been active in our Evolution Program and has excelled on the lanes in competitions across the United States for several years. In addition to her achievements on the lanes, Varano has exceptional grades and gives back to her community through service initiatives throughout the year. Varano is the title officer in Best Buddies International and she volunteer coaches the junior program at her home bowling center and volunteers in other activities in New York.

“It means so much to me to join Team SPI through the Evolution Program,” Varano said. “It’s a great honor to be acknowledged by the best company in the industry and know that they trust me to represent them.”

Varano of Stony Point, New York attends North Rockland High School. Locally she has been named the LoHud/Journal News Bowler of the Year, North Rockland High School MVP, Section One High Average, Member of the Section One Championship Team, Member of the New York High School Championship Team, and numerous other achievements through high school bowling. In addition, Varano has had national success winning two Storm Youth Championships (SYC) titles, finishing second at the PBA Junior National Championships, and finishing second and third at the Junior Gold Championships. She also earned a silver medal and two bronze medals at the 2018 Tournament of Americas.

“Victoria is a very dedicated individual,” Susan Varano said. “She strives to be the best she can be academically and athletically and does her best to share her knowledge with others. You can always find her helping younger kids learn the game she loves or encouraging friends and teammates to practice.”

Though Varano has many achievements in her resume her favorite memory on the lanes so far is making Junior Team USA. For her, this was the moment that all the hours of practice and the work paid off.

“I’m looking forward to representing Storm while inspiring other youth bowlers to be the best that they can be,” Varano said. “I would also like to help change the way non-bowlers see bowling and show them that it is really a sport.”

The Evolution Program is a free program open to all youth athletes who believe bowling is a sport and have a strong desire to learn and sharpen their skills on and off the lanes. This program has something to offer every athlete along their journey within the sport. Athletes in the Evolution Program receive an email on the first of every month filled with a variety of lessons to enhance their learning process in the sport of bowling. This program does not replace a personal coach but will give athletes items to discuss with their team during training sessions.
