Boys Bowling competed for districts at their last meet on October 29 at Boardwalk Bowl. After, their season came to an end as they unfortunately lost districts.

“Bowling is about concentration and mechanics. I explained to players they need to take their time on approaches and to focus. Practice definitely helped us and I am glad the players put in time and effort together as a team.” said the head coach, Tammy Lafayette.

At the beginning of the season, the team practiced twice a week before their first meet in September. They prepared to compete against multiple schools to fight for first place.

“We all had a lot to learn about to get our points up and win every meet, but it was a fun experience meeting new people, competing with friends and getting better at bowling every week.” said player, Julien Torres.

High game bowlers of the first meet against multiple schools, Marcos Millan Falcon and Julien Torres both led the team with a total of 2262 points. Julien Torres bowled a high game of 202 points and Marcos Millan Falcon bowled a high game of 189 points. Julien Torres also was a high game bowler at the Tri-match against Cypress Creek and Freedom, scoring 180 points and bowling a high match of 483 points.

By the end of October, the team made progress, but still struggled taking first place at meets while coming up short by only a couple of points. They placed 2nd at a recent Tri-match against Cypress Creek and Gateway. “We all worked as a team to score as many points as we can. Both Coach Perez and Lafayette helped us by critiquing us on what we needed to work on.” said player, Adrian Milan Medina.

Head coach, Tammy Lafayette and assistant coach, Tanya Perez, enjoyed coaching the team as many players bonded during the season. Regardless of their record, the team had a great experience learning about the game of bowling.
