Northwood Community Club Bowlers Finish Season Strong
Our Rangers keep busy both with school extra curriculars and with extracurriculars outside of NHS. This week, we were able to sit down with a few members of the Northwood Community Club Bowling team. The team consists of four members, Amber Elliot, Ty Zieroff, Zach Wilkes, and Josh Roach. The team usually practices on Thursday nights at Penny Jo’s Eastern Lanes. Occasionally, the team will practice multiple nights during a week, if they have a big match coming up. These bowlers compete within the Metro High School League at SouthWyck Lanes. They bowl every Saturday morning and sometimes even get to bowl televised matches on BCSN on Sunday mornings.
When asked about highlights for this season, Amber stated that high scores and series that the team has been able to reach have definitely been a highlight. She added, “We work as a team to bowl our best and get our name on the sheet for high team series. We definitely had an amazing season and we were able to place in the top four all season long!” Ty stated that a huge highlight was making it to second place to bowl on television. Zach added that that everyone had a really good year and recognized Amber as helping out a lot to keep the team motivated!
This year, the Northwood Community Club Bowling Team finished second behind Clay Gold Team. Zach Wilkes was the Boys High Scorer with a 217.8 Average and Amber Elliot was the Girls High Scorer with a 185.8 Average. Josh Roach averaged 185 and Ty Zieroff averaged 195. Zach and Amber also received the All City Bowler Award, which is given to the top four boy’s and girl’s averages for the season. The team participated in the season tournament at Southwyck Lanes finishing second overall. The Northwood Community Club Bowlers ended their season with the Chris Taylor Memorial Tournament. Zach Wilkes took first place in the Scratch Boys Division, Amber Elliot took first place in the Scratch Girls Division, and Ty Zieroff took ninth in the Scratch Boys Division.
When asked about what they enjoy most about the bowling team, Amber said that she really enjoys the fun that the team has together. She further explained, “We are a team, we win as a team, we lose as a team, and we compete as a team. If one of us is struggling, we help each other out and keep positive attitudes. We have developed friendships through bowling. We also bowl with other schools so we create friendships with people from different schools. Outside of high school bowling, we compete in tournaments with each other or with people from other schools.” Ty and Zach both agreed that they also really enjoy bowling with their teammates.
When asked what is up next for the Northwood bowlers, Ty explained that they will be looking for a fourth bowler, due to the fact that Josh will be graduating this spring. Zach added that the team plans to practice over the summer. He also has his sights on winning a championship! Finally, Zach added that he would like to acknowledge and thank Karen Elliot for being the team coach, stating, “Without her, there wouldn’t be a Northwood bowling team!”
