Girls bowling places fifth and boys bowling places sixth at state meet

Boys and girls bowling competes at Northrock Lanes Thursday, Feb. 29

Boys and girls bowling competed at Northrock Lanes Thursday, Feb. 29 in the state tournament. Out of nine teams, the boys team placed sixth overall and the girls team placed fifth overall. Senior Kiara Gonzalez individually placed 11th in the girls competition. Seniors Andrew Kouris placed second, Ethan Diehl placed 15th and Brett Stockwell placed 18th individually as well. After the meet, Kouris reflects on his bowling performance. 

“During the meet, I bowled a 222, 235 and 268, which allowed me to get a 725,” Kouris said. “I am very proud of how I bowled, and it was really awesome to get second overall.” 

Similarly to Kouris, Gonzalez also looks back on how she did at the meet.

“While at state, I bowled a 204, 201 and 210. I got a 615 series,” Gonzalez said. “I placed 11th overall which was nice, however, I wish my sisters could have placed high as well.”

Additionally, Kouris shares the experiences he had while at the state meet. 

“State is super fun and it’s just a bonding experience with the team. We went up to Wichita the day before and got in some bowling practice. We also went to Texas Roadhouse to have dinner as a team,” Kouris said. “We bowled in the competition the next day and it was a fun experience. Everyone on the team are really good friends so we can help each other out a lot.”

Gonzalez describes how the day started well, but the girls team had a bit of a rough ending. 

“It was a lot of fun. The girls bowled in the afternoon, so we started the competition already pumped from the guys bowling well in the morning,” Gonzalez said. “However, I wish that we could have had a better day. Most of the girls team faced a lot of difficulties and lost a lot of energy by the end of the day.” 

Overall, Kouris talks about how the state meet was a great end to his senior season. 

“This team has been great and the state meet was a really good end to my senior season,” Kouris said. “The whole boys varsity team is seniors, so it was kind of a sad ending for us as it was our last time bowling together as a team.”
