Q and A with Cecilia:

  1. How long have you been bowling?

I have been bowling for 9 years.

 

 

  1. What do you like best about high school bowling?

 

What I like best about high school bowling is that you get to create new friendships and the great environment that comes along with it.

 

 

  1. What are you looking forward to MOST about the state tournament?

 

I am looking forward to finishing at a better place this year and last year I feel way for confident with my game plan and hope to make the top 15 cut.

 

 

  1. What is one thing that most people would NOT know about the challenges of competitive bowling?

 

One thing that most people wouldn’t know about bowling is that you have to have a really good mental game to be really competitive, as soon as you let something get into your head you can ruin your entire game.

 

 

 

 

 

Qualifying in 7th place at the Regional meet with a six game total of 1217 is 9th grader, Izaac Goergen.

Q and A with Izaac.

 

  1. How long have you been bowling?

Well my dad owns a bowling center so I was born into it. I rolled a bowling ball down the lane for the first time when I was 10 months old, but I didn’t seriously get competitive in the sport until I was 6 or 7.

 

 

  1. What do you like best about high school bowling?

 

100% the atmosphere. Contrary to what most people believe, when its a close game and every pin counts, it get REALLY loud. Just getting pumped up when someone throws a good shot is the best feeling in the world for me.

  1. What are you looking forward to MOST about the state tournament?

 

The thing I’m looking forward to most is the competition that’s going to be there. They are cutting from 600 kids bowling at Regionals to 60 kids bowling at States, so just knowing that I’m able to compete with some of the best in the state is really exciting.

 

 

  1. What is one thing that most people would NOT know about the challenges of competitive bowling?

 

Probably the biggest element to the sport of bowling is the fact that on the lane is a sheet of oil. A sheet of oil that gets laid down in a very specific way. Now there are 1000’s of different “oil patterns” out there that we have to bowl on. Depending what is laid down is the difference maker on every decision we choose.
