This year has been has been more of a struggle for a Green girls bowling team that is used to success.
With a 3-5 record in the Federal league and an overall 4-6 record, the team has nevertheless kept a positive attitude and is looking forward to postseason play.
"I am happy with the girls," said head coach Cory Potter, who is in his second year in that position. "Overall, their averages have been going up and I am happy with that. And we have done fairly well in our tournament play. Right now, we are hoping to make it to the sectionals and see what happens after that."
For the bowlers, it has been a growing season, but as they approach the postseason, their sights are set on reaching the state tournament.
Two seniors, Brandi Wells and Jennifer Johnston, went to the state finals as sophomores. They are hoping to repeat that feat by providing the team the experience and leadership the younger girls can draw from.
"My game has been really good," said Wells, a four-year veteran of the team. "As a team, we are working together really well, concentrating on the things we need to. It has been an interesting season because it is my senior year and I know a lot about the teams we are competing against, and I know what to expect. So far, we have been really having fun and we have shown great skill at the tournaments, where it is all about stamina."
Johnston has an average of 205 and, "She is the best bowler on the team," according to Potter.
"The season has been good," said Johnston. "I think the season has been good for us. As a team, we have gotten a lot closer. And we have had fun. We have learned a lot, and I think Coach Potter has learned with us. I hope we can make it to the sectionals, but if we can't I hope I can at least make it as an individual."
