Ashley Cote of Sarasota was a three-event winner in the Sarasota-Manatee County USBC Bowling Association’s annual women’s championship tournament at AMF Bradenton Lanes over the weekend (March 28-29).

“I attribute much of my success to the awesome girls I bowl with,” Cote said. “We always have a fun time, no matter what. My doubles partner (Parker) is great, and we seem to help each other out.”
