Bowlers aim for strike on season

bowling.000The bowling teams are getting out their bowling shoes, polishing their bowling balls and hitting the lanes.

Since the team has already started the season, they are now practicing and improving on skills for the competition that is fast approaching.

 

“Last year I would say would have to be our best year since I have been playing on the team,” junior Jeremy Lundgren said.


After last year, FHN unfortunately lost their two top teams. Each team had previously won their respective divisions.


Even though there is a loss of seniors who graduated, this year’s team is ready to move forward.


“This year we’re still doing well,” Head bowling coach Denise Lupo said. “We lost a lot of our most skilled bowlers that graduated.”


Last year there were four divisions and this year there are now five. The Bowling team practices every Monday and every Wednesday at Harvester Lanes and every Tuesday and every Thursday at Cave Springs Lanes.


No practices are mandatory, but most of the bowlers show up to improve their game. The bowling team’s season
will last 20 weeks. Throughout those weeks they will play three games every Sunday at assorted lanes.


Jeremy Lundgren’s team is one of the leading bowling teams. They have had only lost one game so far this season,
according to Lundgren.


“Its been going pretty good so far but we don’t like that lanes that we have been bowling on,” junior Darin
Voyles said.


Throughout the year, the bowling team will play in two scholarship tournaments. One scholarship will be raised for the players themselves, while the other will go toward St. Louis county.


The ultimate goal, however, is to be selected to participate in the state tournament at the end of the year.


“My team expects to place in the top three or top five in our division,” Voyles said.
