The West Delaware boys bowling team has gained six freshmen, two sophomores, and one senior. Nine out of 17 members are new to the program.

“We have been improving day by day,” varsity bowler Brandon Larson (12) said. “I believe everything that we do has helped us, even the simple drills, like approach and our timing.”

The freshmen are showing their enjoyment in bowling daily. “I love how the team members help each other in a fun, entertaining way,” first-time bowler Landon Letts (9) said. “Even when we are done with practice, a group of us will still try to go bowling together after practice or during the weekend.”
