The girls’ varsity bowling team won Conference last weekend. The team had four girls out of five place in the top 22, earning all-Conference, according to Christina Eddleman, senior bowler.IMG_2307


“Bowling is really a mental game. You have to keep yourself up because if you don’t, it affects the team,” Eddleman said. “If we have a bad game, we shake it off and continue to bowl with our heads up. Then at practice we fix our mistakes.”


The practices leading up to winning Conference was not easy for the team. The team focused on concentrating on the game and not letting mistakes get in the way of their focus. Besides looking at the mark and following through, confidence is a big key role to bowling well, according to Eddleman.


Eddleman and the team plan to use that sense of confident this weekend at Regionals, on Saturday, February 7. If they win there, they will head to Sectionals on February 14, and State Finals starting February 20 according to Amanda Tarlos, sophomore bowler.


“My hopes for regionals is to make to to sectionals, so that’s top five, but I’m hoping for first because I know [the] team can do it,” Tarlos said.
