Starting the season off strong, the bowling team won its first match of the season against Charlestown. The bowling team, in its fourth year, has won two sectional championships and placed second in sectionals last year.
The team is highly motivated to win this year and is looking forward to building chemistry. Veteran bowler senior Evan Davis said,” We got a few new teammates that I have to get to know, but most of them have already been on the team, so we already have great chemistry.”
First time player seniors Michael Leonhardt is in his first year playing the sport. He said after the win,“ The game started off rough with low scores but we got the job done and won the match.” Leonhardt wants to play this year to improve his game to pursue bowling as a career.
Returning player, sophomore Emily Kaiser said,” I am looking forward to communicating with my team and hopefully creating bonds with my fellow teammates.” There are currently three girls on the team and nine boys. Of those twelve, eight are returning players.
The team’s next game is on Wednesday, October 23 against New Albany as they look to continue the season strong. Sophomore RM Baugh looks forward to this season saying,” Everyone on the team wants to improve and gain chemistry and experience over the season. “
