Baldwin girl bowlers continue to improve

BALDWIN — Baldwin bowlers return to action this week at Country Lanes in Scottville.

Players have included Rosie Lemieux, Alexis Pieske, Katheryn Higbee and Jasmine Jewett. The team continues to practice Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Higbee is a freshman on the girls bowling team.

“It seemed like a good sport to do,” she said. “Everyone is supportive.”

It’s the first time she’s been on an organized team. In the past, Higbee bowled recreationally. She said she’s been “slowly improving.”

The key to having success in the sport is “concentrating,” Higbee said. The three-day-a week practice schedule also has been helpful, she added.

She has also played volleyball in the past

“In bowling, we’re encouraging and we help each other,” Higbee said.

Getting spares is critical, she added. “The lanes are all different,” she said.

Her best game has been a 200 and she’s looking to improve on that as the season continues.

Pieske is a junior, who also played volleyball for the Panthers. She decided to come out for her first year of bowling.

“It seemed like fun,” Pieske said.

She continues to get better. Getting spares can be a challenge, she added.
