Deep, experienced team should do well

By Derek Liebig

 

The Whitehall varsity bowling squad has more depth and experience than it’s had in years.

Head coach Martha Beayon said that with 14 kids turning out this year, it’s one of the biggest teams she’s ever had. The team also boasts plenty of experience.

“We’re an older squad. We have six seniors,” she said.

Included among those seniors are James and Richard Tisi who have given up playing basketball to concentrate on bowling and are expected to anchor what should be a very competitive team.

 “James and Richard are two of our top newcomers,” Beayon said.

The Tisi’s immediately step in and fill the top two spots on the roster. Shan Beebe, James Jero and Deonna Birthiume will also be looked to for a strong showing this season.

Beayon expects the team to be right in the middle of the league and if a few players improve throughout the season, the team could a dark horse threat going into the Adirondack League Tournament on Jan. 31 in Fort Edward.

While most other winter sport teams are just beginning or have just begun their seasons, the bowling season is already in full swing and the Railroaders are off to a promising start. They have won two of their first three matches with only loss coming to undefeated Fort Edward.
