Bowling Falcons Welcome Cole McDannel

April 30, 2021

Cole McDannel of Mt. Vernon has announced his intent to bowl with Southeastern Illinois College’s Bowling Falcons for the 2021-22 season.

Doug Cottom, SIC’s Head Bowling Coach, is pleased to be welcoming McDannel to the team.

“We are really excited to have Cole join the Falcon Bowling Program,” said Cottom. “He comes from a great high school program and a high school coach who is familiar with the collegiate game. Cole is fairly new to the game, but has progressed nicely in three short years under Brandon McPherson at Mount Vernon. We see no reason why he can’t step right in and contribute this fall.”

The Falcon Bowling Team has been competing since 2018, besting Division I universities in regional competition as a member of the United States Bowling Congress Collegiate Bowling. Those interested in trying out for SIC’s 2021-22 men’s or women’s varsity teams is encouraged to contact Doug Cottom at or 618-841-4867Scholarships and bowler incentives are available.
