The boys and girls bowling teams competed in the Regionals competition at Park Lanes Thursday, Feb. 27. 

The boys scored 2937, placing seventh in the competition, while the girls scored 2450, placing fifth; the top scorers from each team and only state qualifiers are senior Bri Laluk and junior Jackson Penny. 

Due to difficult oil patterns, Laluk thinks the team was challenged, but still believes the team did the best that they could. 

“The whole girls team was only 15 pins away from going to state,” Laluk said. “Personally, I wish I could have done better but I’m glad I was able to make it to state for my senior year.” 

Reflecting on past meets, Laluk believes that the team has shown a lot of improvement. 

“As a team we improved greatly,” Laluk said. “With a lot of practice we were able to place first for boys and girls at most meets.” 

Personally, Laluk has improved greatly, and knows that practice pays off. 

“I feel I improved as much as I could, practicing every week day with the team and every Saturday morning with my dad,” Laluk said. “I was able to learn how to pick up spares more consistently.” 

After being on the bowling team for four years, Laluk is glad that she worked hard enough to make it to state every year since her freshman year. 

“I am glad I was able to make it to state the past four years,” Laluk said. “Growing up I went to state to watch my brothers and fell in love with the atmosphere and the excitement people had over bowling.
