Brittney Kiser she said that, “I have been bowling all four years of high school.” She also swims for the school. Ms. Kiser said that, “The girls bowling team practices Monday through Friday for one and a half to two hours.”
Tim Kiser, a sophomore, said he has bowled for the school for his freshman year, and for this year of high school. Mr. Kiser said that, “The boys bowling team practices Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for about two hours as well.” He also said that the “boys and girls bowling teams will sometimes bowl against each other because in the tournaments, the boys and girls bowl against each other. Mr. Kiser said, “I also did football at the beginning of this year and I did baseball last year.” He has been bowling personally since he was about 7 years old.
Aneeka Stephen, a sophomore at McNary, she has bowled with the school since eighth grade. She wasn’t able to bowl in the tournaments because, “you are only able to participate if you’re at least a freshman, Stephen said. Stephen sees bowling as a lot of fun. They compete against 15 to 30 teams from other schools in the state, depending on what type of tournament they are in. “Practices are not very hard if you have bowled for a while before joining the team,” Aneeka said, “try your best and have fun, it’s not just about winning, but bowling and having fun.”
Some bowlers are not just McNary students, they have some homeschool students and they also have a West Salem High School student.
