“The Varsity season started off strong but has been up and down toward the middle of the season,” Coach Hulsen said.
The ONW bowling season so far has started off to a strong start for both boys and girls. But can definitely improve on some aspects of their game.
“We need to boost everyone’s average up by about ten to fifteen pins,” Hulsen said.
Many of the bowlers on the team have been moving around on the roster with Varsity’s 6th and 7th spot being adjusted based on who has the hot hand. There has been multiple bowlers rotating around in the lineup.
Mackenzie Saulnier, Nathan Demars, and Garret Neil have all been key contributors and the most consistent bowlers for the first part of the season.
“I feel Garret Neil has stepped up quite a bit taking on a more of a leadership role,” Nathan Demars said.
Garret Neil has bowled in the 600’s in his past three matches. Neil helps bowlers with their form and their technique.
“Mackenzie Saulnier is one of our main contributors to what our team is and how we have performed,”Demars said.
Mackenzie Saulnier won state as a sophomore and is looking to go out on top and win state again as a senior.
“We lost a lot of seniors going into this season so a couple bowler needed to step up to fill those positions,”Hulsen said.
Going into the 2015 bowling season the team had many open spots due to many seniors leaving. There has been many new bowlers this season, giving more opportunity to develop as a team.
