After coming off of a losing season, the men’s bowling team has made a decent start to this year. Even though they lost their first meet away against Dubuque Hempstead, men’s and women’s bowling coach Diana Sidler isn’t worried.

“There are a lot of great teams in our conference. Dubuque being one of them,” Sidler said.

The loss to Hempstead didn’t last too long. The Tiger’s won their latest meet against Iowa City West on Dec. 4. Two outstanding athletes at this meet were junior Keith Gruis whose combined score after both games was 384 and also junior Nelson who scored a 351 against the Little Hawks.

“Our current record is 1-1, and even though we lost quite a few members from last year, I think we have a good chance of finishing well,” junior bowler Nick Miller said.

Sidler also had promising things to say about her team.

“This is a rebuilding year for out team. We are working with only three seniors this season, but the two freshman we have on our team are showing great promise. I think we will finish in the middle of our division this season,” Sidler said.

All this positivity is also backed by statements regarding the team as well as individuals.

“The one thing I believe the team needs to work on, and what we have been working on, is lane adjustment in our bowling,” Sidler said.

The team is hoping to add to its wins when they face the Dubuque Wahlert Golden Eagles on Friday, Dec 11.
