Early Career: Seraus came to UMES as the top woman bowler in Aruba... Bowled for her home country competitively for several years...As far back as 2007, Seraus took 33rd with a 193.33 average in the Qubica AMF Word Cup in St. Petersburg, Russia... Returned to Russia in 2013, this time to Siberia, to take 6th place overall in the same event, averaging an impressive 225.38 and tossing a high game of a 279. That was the highest result ever for a woman from Aruba in the event. Seraus went 4-4 overall in the match play round and averaged a 227.63 on the final day. In that same event, former multi-time winner of the College Bowler of the Year, Danielle McEwan who bowled at Fairleigh Dickinson, represented Team USA and took fourth place, averaging just over a 230... In other events internationally, Seraus helped Aruba win a bronze medal in Trios at the South American Games in 2010 in Colombia, home to several current and former Hawk bowlers... In 2011, finished as the 10th seed in the Pan-American Games in Mexico with a 195.5 average, but lost in the match-play round to the eventual runner-up Jennifer Park of Canada... That same event saw UMES' own Anggie Ramirez (Bogota, Colombia), who won four National Championships and was a multi-time All-America selection for the Hawks, finish as the 14th seed. The following year, 2012, Seraus took seventh with a 202.7 average at the Champion of Champions PABCON. Seraus is also no stranger to bowling in the United States, having spent time training for Aruba at the International Training and Research Center (ITRC) in Arlington, Texas where UMES has trained and competed in the past. Her fellow country woman Kamilah Dammers bowls for Webber International in the states and won a USBC Collegiate National Championship back in 2012.
