AHS looking to strike success at state

With only a few weeks left, the varsity boys bowling team is looking to strike gold at state. The guys currently have two losses and will need to win out to secure a spot. Despite a fine season, the varsity girls just missed out on state, falling to Antigo.

Focus is at an all-time high and everyone is locked in and bowling well. Here’s a take from two high school bowlers. Hailey Peterson, a girls varsity bowler says, “The season is going well. I’m having lots of fun bowling with friends and also meeting new people on other teams. She also claims the girls team is better than the boys, but we’ll save that argument for another time… ”

Evan Losielle, a junior varsity bowler, has this to say about the varsity guys: “They’re doing pretty good and putting in work. I like seeing everyone’s improvement.” As for his goals, he added: “I hope to bowl on varsity at least once this year.” Thankfully for Evan his wish will be coming true.

AHS will be sending the boys varsity to state as well as junior Abby Giddings for solo state. While at the tournament, bowlers can sign up for the storm doubles where they will combine scores with their partner looking to advance.

The state tournament will be held the weekend of March 5-6 featuring teams from all around Wisconsin as well as individual high school bowlers.

Abby Giddings is not only working hard for her team but for herself, she is looking to go to state as an individual this year as she is number 2 in the district with a 81% fill.
