Girls Bowling ready to bowl and compete in invitational

In another invitational taking place the weekend of January 12, the girls bowling team traveled to Fenton to compete.

With three other meets in the last week, the team is in their groove; they were ready and prepared for what came in the next meet.

“I think it has helped that we have had other games and we have been able to do pretty decent and know what we are capable of,” sophomore Alyssa Olson said.

Although the team competes together, they also look to compete and place as individuals.

“I’m looking forward to us placing as a team and hopefully placing individually,” junior Lynn Michalec said.

As the team travels about an hour to Fenton, they know there will be some challenges being away from their home lanes, but nothing they can’t overcome.

“We definitely have a disadvantage,” Olson said. “Whenever you bowl at another house or alley, the home team obviously has a better shot since they know the pattern and have the opportunity to know how the ball will react to the lane.”

On the other hand, different patterns can also be an advantage to those with different balls.

“We can analyze the pattern faster and help each other adjust,” Michalec said.

There will be teams there that will appear again in later games of the season.

“It is helpful in the way that we will get to see how teams further away are doing and how good their team is because we will see them later in the season, towards the end,” Olson said.

This was the girl’s last invitational of the year with only five games remaining until conference. As a team, they believe they have the potential to go beyond conference and even hope for state.
