Coaches Comments:

Boy's Varsity: The Evans teams only brought three bowlers, so it gave us a big advantage and explains the lopsided scoring. Our boys shot some high scores in the first two matches, but two of them had much lower scores in the final game. Overall, though, they showed lots of determination in keeping their winning streak going. The team is looking forward to the return of Kyle Paxson next week as they prepare for the District and Metro Tournaments.

Girl's Varsity: As with the boys, they were up against only three bowlers from Evans, yet they kept the drive going throughout the three games. Stephanie (Baer) and Sara (Hohmeister) had a chance to bowl all three games as three of the six varsity girls were not present for the match. This gave both young bowlers a chance to bowl a complete match at the varsity level and will help prepare them for next year’s varsity role.
