Last night was the banquet for the Massachusetts State Championship Bowling Tournament. They only give out trophies to the 1st place winners, 2nd and 3rd place received medals. The banquet is only for the 1st place bowlers, a little something extra to recognize their achievement.
Just as a reminder Orion won the following in the tournament:
1st Place Singles Division
1st Place Teams Division
1st Place for High Single Game
1st Place for All Events
3rd Place for Doubles Division
I don't have a photo of him with his 3rd place medal as he received that previously at the bowling alley and not at the banquet...here are some photos of him from the banquet last night.

Orion receiving his High Single Game Trophy (not sure what happened with the photo here, hubby took this one and I'm not sure what he had the settings on the camera at) The lady in the photo is Linda, the owner of the bowling alley where Orion bowls.
Orion, Coach Mom and the 1st Place All Event Trophy
And finally Orion with all 4 trophies lined up showing off the patches that came with them.
I can't even begin to express how proud of my little man I am! He's only 8 1/2 years old, has only been bowling for 3 years and already he's showing this kind of skill! I am amazed by how well he is doing!
