After Saegertown’s victory at Seneca Lanes last year to secure the 2016 Championship, the team of five aim to sharpen their techniques and performances for the upcoming season. Members of the bowling team includes seniors Ricky Kanline and Jake Sada, junior Michael Costello, sophomore Austin Bedow, and freshman Nick Archacki.
Sophomore Kylee Higby, a former member of the bowling team, shared some advice for this year’s team: “Encourage each other, but don’t bring each other down. Always stay positive as a team. Stay focused, but most importantly, have fun.”
There are high ambitions for the team to be back to back champions. Kanline said, “This year, our team wants to win the league again.” Their major rival is Cranberry. The last time the two teams met, the Panthers defeated the Superberries 3-2.
Costello made a bold prediction about the team’s chances this year: “I think our team will go undefeated this season again and win the championship.” Their first match will be in November.
