Bowling preview


More experienced bowlers eye success

 

With a season’s experience tacked onto what was a youthful team last season Granville bowling head coach Cathy Kilby expects to see a competitive squad when stacked up against the rest of the Wasaren League.

“If we’re luck, between what we kept and what they’re losing, we can do some damage,” Kilby said.

After rebuilding the team has a bit of new look this season as new bowlers fill varsity roster spots including one eighth grader. The team has a youth movement going on with underclassmen filling up its ranks and now those underclassmen have much more experience. The team remains young, with arguably its most experienced bowler in his junior year

“I think we’ve got a few seniors, but most everybody who’s here will be back next year,” she said. Kilby said the loss of travel league bowling and the off-season training might have hurt the team a bit because some players are bowling less in the off-season, but the team will still have veterans. 

“We will bring a lot of experience back to the lanes this season and a lot of those will be able to return for the following year,” Kilby said. “We’re young. I think on a good day we can roll with the best of them.”

Kilby said she really doesn’t pay close attention to what other teams lose in terms of players, so she was not sure where Granville stacks up in the league and who is out in front for the chase for a Wasaren League title. However, she thinks the team will be competitive.

Kilby said making adjustments to the various “houses” the team visits will be important as it is every year, but said the team is sometimes slow to adjust. Fortunately for Granville their schedule places them at home often.

 

ROSTER: Russell Martelle, Ethan Barnes, Alex Bernard, Patrick Loomis, Jeremy Garrick, Adam Gordon, Tyler Williams, Kayla Mabb, Clara Mallory, David Petreika, Alexis Martelle, Ashleigh Loomis, Cole McCullen, Allen Bogart, Abigail Munger.
