If you are like most people you may not know Lincoln High has a bowling team. The Lincoln High Bowling Team had a good season. Nobody went to state but, many members of the team said they were proud of how the season went for them because they improved their scores. Sophomore Alex Phillips said last year his score was about 190 last year and this year it was 230.
Sophomore Crystal Eddins said “I improved over the year I started at about 70 and went up to over the hundreds per scores per game.” Senior Micah Eigbrett said last his score in a match was 218 but at practice it was 280. Phillips said his favorite moment this year was going into the second day at Star City because Lincoln High hasn’t been there in five years. “It was very hectic the second day, it was very crowded. I just imagined it was just me and the team at practice.”
Eddins said her most proud moment of the season was when she got her letter. “There wasn’t very many of us on the girls team so I was on varsity so if I do so many I can get my letter for that.” “My favorite moment was the last tournament we did the best we had ever done, it was a really fun time.” Eigbrett said. The bowling team went to the districts to see if they would make it to the finals. The team did their best and were only 60 pins off from going into the finals. Coach Phillips said his goal next year is to form a girls team because this year there were only two girls. Then he went on to talk about the boys team. “As far as the boys team goes my goal is for us to get at least as far as we did this year.” Bowling coach Ron Phillips said overall he was happy with the results of the bowling season. “We could have done better but we had a lot of new kids that really picked up the sport.”
