The girl’s bowling team’s season came to a close at sectionals on February 14. The team did not qualify for state, but many members improved individually throughout the course of the season.

Senior Dominique Lee was the only bowler to go to sectionals this year. Lee came in 28th out of 105 bowlers, missing the cut-off for state by one place.

“Dominique added several scores to our record book, including two series over 600 and high games of 235, 243 and 247,” Coach James McKnight said .

The team had a record of 5 wins and 9 losses and participated in many tournaments this year. The team won a second place trophy at the Lisle Tournament.

“Coach Trafton and I are proud of the entire team and how well they kept a positive attitude and competed as fine representatives of our school,” McKnight said .

Other top bowlers of the year include senior Katy Hill and sophomore Grace Lindgren.

“I did well this year; I improved by 15 pins,” Hill said.

Hill’s average score last year was 127; this year it was improved by 15 points averaging a score of 142.

The Kaneland bowling team competed with Rockford East, Sycamore, Dekalb and Dixon at sectionals.

“This year has been a lot better. We had a winning streak and beat Sterling for the first time,” Lee said.

All sports teams face the same challenge of trying to meet and exceed many goals throughout the season. According to Hill, the most memorable part of this season was getting an award at the Lisle Tournament.
