Keeping their heads out of the gutter


Even though the women’s bowling team had not seen any players go to state in past seasons, they had high hopes this time around. And are looking forward to districts, which took place on Feb. 12.

The team compiled its best record in five years.

“Bowling is one of those things that you get better with time, so this being senior year, we all have definitely grown from freshman year,” said Katie Krapfl, ‘19. This year varsity team is made up of almost all seniors, which was motivation to do their absolute best this season. “Because we have so many seniors, we hoped to make our mark before we leave. And since we did pretty well last year at districts, this year we had the opportunity to do even better,” said Krapfl.

Mary Edwards, ‘19, is another returning senior who is one of the core varsity members. “This year is more fun since it’s our last year, and we are making the most of it. It is definitely our best season, competing-wise,” said Edwards.

The team as a whole has been bowling consistently. “We are definitely working as a team this year instead of just individuals, which is good because we are getting better every meet,” said Jena Kluesner, ‘19.

This season, the women’s bowling team got a team score of 2,484 pins at only their second meet, a number they haven’t reached in five years. They later beat that score at their sixth meet with a total of 2,511 pins.
