Hudson Valley Community College sophomore bowler Katie Duncan (Voorheesville/Clayton A. Bouton High School) has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend school and bowl at Arkansas State University.

Duncan finished third in the 2004 Mountain Valley Conference standings with a 208.3 average. Her top performances of the 2004 season include a 300 game at the Adirondack Invitational, and an individual title at the Dutchess Invitational with a 208 average.
