The boys and girls bowling team is expanding every year pulling more and more curious students into forming a strong competitive team.

“Everyone should join bowling, it’s a great sport,” senior John Gingerich said.

Gingerich has been a part of the team for two years now, he’s also on the golf and baseball team, and a part of NHS and I Jag. He has been practicing and is confident he will get his varsity letter this year. Being a part of the Hoover bowling team is about much more than just the competition.

“To be considered a varsity bowler you have to compete in 2 varsity meets and average 150 or better,” Gingerich said.  “Bowling is a lot of fun and always lit.”

Junior Breazi Preston is a soccer player, swimmer, involved in silver cord, and NHS. Now, this multi-activity student has added bowling to her long list of activities.

“We don’t care about winning; we are just here to have fun. No matter how well I do, we are always proud of each other,” Preston said.

Bowling is a fun sport to get you involved in something because it’s competitive but not overly physically demanding.

“Bowling has quickly became something I look forward to every week. Tuesdays and Thursdays are literally my favorite just because I get to go bowl,” Preston said.

A sport like bowling is a small tight-knit community of diverse people that come together for a competitive yet relaxing game.
