The Skinny on Shan-O-Mac

Originally from Portland, Oregon, Shannon earned a full-ride scholarship to Portland State University playing softball. As a college freshman, she was a first team all-American center fielder. She had a .411 batting average as a freshman, with 15 outfield assists, utilizing her strong arm to gun down runners at the plate. As a 15-year old, she was among the final 160 women competing for a spot on the 1996 Team USA Softball Team. Shannon was recognized at the Oregon Hayward Awards in 2007 as a finalist for “Professional Woman Athlete of the Year.”

When’s she’s not bowling, Shannon enjoys volleyball, golf and running. Her most proud bowling achievement used to be when she shot 299 on TV in the 2007 Women’s US Open; however, that was trumped when she and her Team USA teammates traveled to Hong Kong to bowl the 2011 World Women’s Championships and brought home the Team Gold. A pretty big achievement considering it hadn’t been done by Team USA in 24 years.
