Girls bowling builds off last year’s success

Girls bowling is looking to pick up right where they left off last year, winning Regionals, placing top four in Sectionals and making it to State
Bowling is an extremely challenging and demanding sport, as with any other athletic activity that is offered at the school.
“Bowling differs from other sports for many reasons. One of the reasons is the fact that it is not always as physical as others, but it requires more mental toughness. You need to be able to forget about the previous game or frame and be ready to quickly adjust,” said varsity bowler Payton Bertermann.
As the season is just beginning, the girls are looking forward to improving their game for the upcoming season.
Individual and team goals work to strengthen and unite the team around their common goal, moving on to State. Last year, the team placed 15th at State. For varsity captain Gabrielle Silva, her individual goal is to make it to State, but she still looks for team success.
“We would like to make it to the second day of State, and to do that, we’ll have to be even more focused and confident than last year,” Silva said.
The team has performed extremely well over the last couple of years, and the bowling team will continue to be a force to reckon with for years to come.
“[We would love to] win Conference and qualify for State as a team. [We would like to improve on our] mental toughness and positive attitudes, no matter the situation,” said varsity head coach Laura Bertermann.
