By: Tony Butler
The 2017-18 bowling teams are just a week away from beginning practices. With a new coach in place, it's now time to take a look at the teams.
The Wyverns boys return a young squad this 2017-18 season. With 9 of 14 players in the freshman and sophomore class, the Wyverns will look to returning Junior Logan Wourms as the teams leader this season. Senior Ethan McCrocklin joins the team for his first year as well. The boys team has struggled a bit in the past couple years but their young experience should lead to a competitive 2017-18 season.
St. Francis girls bowling looks to have a strong season behind seniors Dakota O'Bannon, Aakriti Bista and Maris Woldin. All four year letter winners in the sport with experience to lead the team. Sophomore Kelly Baize, one of the rising stars from a year ago will return as well. While the girls struggled to pull out victories late in the season they competed strongly in 2016-17.
