Bowling is becoming a major sport at Temple Christian but with a small team of seven players this year. There are many new bowlers to the team, so this is a building year for the team. The team is made up of seven dedicated players and is coached by Dick Mowery. The team is made of Three seniors: Lexi Bayliff, Sydney Biglow, and Ethyn Dirmeyer. Along with the two juniors: Gabe DiLallo and Jacob Helser. The freshmen are Seth Nickles and Jaiden Marshall.

The bowling team this year is working hard to advance their skills in the sport of bowling and have made significant improvements from last year’s season. I asked how the season is going for the team and junior, Gabe DiLallo replied with, “Well this year is going fantastic!” Senior bowler, Ethyn Dirmeyer answered with, “Really well, everybody has improved, we have taken a lot of new players, and everybody does their best for the team, Jaiden has started playing this year and has taken things slowly but is improving quickly.” When asked about his first year bowling Jayden said, “I like the sport, and it’s definitely a learning experience. I’ve changed a lot with my bowling since I’ve started.” Everybody is working hard to improve and do the best for the team this year, so come out to their games and support our 2016 bowling team!
