Even though the bowling team did not advance past regionals, coach Gerry Adair is looking at the positives.

“The season was great,” Adair said. “We showed lots of improvement over the course of the year.”

Adair said there were 16 bowlers on the team. They tried out in October, practiced on Fridays, and had matches against Cleveland Central, DeSoto Central, Lewisburg, Olive Branch and Southaven.

“My best game was against Lewisburg,” said sophomore Reginald Moore, whose highest score was 210.

Malachi Alexander, a junior whose best score was 153, said his favorite memory of the season was competing at regionals in Cleveland on Jan. 27.

Alexander said he liked it “because of everyone’s hard work and how everyone was being very uplifting.”

Moore, who said he likes bowling because it’s not hard, also likes being part of a team.

“I enjoyed how everybody supported one another,” he said.
