KABOOM!  That’s right sports fans, the boys bowling team did it again.  They beat the Titans of Tinley Park, former home of Mr. Kawa.  The varsity Kegglers won their match by almost 100 pins!  Match highlights include: Jaylen Little and his game of 207, Elliott Taylor who rolled a 234, and Michael “easy slide” Gunn who threw a perfect game of 300.  For those of you who don’t know, that is 13 strikes in a row!  Great job Michael – that is the first perfect game during a match in school history.  And not to be outdone, the Frosh team won also, in celebration of Mr. Tarka’s birthday!  Team leaders were: Kristofer “snoopy” Graham with a 123, Darrius “the big” Gunn 119, and Salvador “the assassin” Haro with games of 178 and 153.  Great job guys!

Coach Twietmeyer and Coach Tarka would also like to announce that Jaylen Little is the bowler of the week.
