Bowling welcomes influx of new blood

KANELAND—While the Lady Knights will miss record book-rewriter Holly Thomas, and the team finished with a dual mark of 3-12, there are reasons to be optimistic.
KHS took its last two regular season clashes of the year, while coach Jim McKnight is excited about the pieces fitting together in the lineup puzzle.
“It looks like our varsity is going to start out with quite a battle for the six positions. At this point, the contenders are: senior co-captains Seleana Isaacs and Madi Bluml, returning senior Kayley Larsen, returning juniors Amanda Strayve and Morgan Wojciechowski, and newcomers like junior Ellissa Eckert, sophomore Christie Crews, and freshman Mandy Felella,” McKnight said.
McKnight knows that it’ll take a team effort to supplant the talented Thomas.
“Fortunately, we do have much of last year’s team back, and we also have some exciting new players to watch. We have lots of girls who can compete.” McKnight said.
The Lady Knights will have to deal with its usual brand of worthy competition.
“Last year, when our varsity was able to win, it was because we had the combined high scores of Holly, Isaacs, Wojciechowski, and others,” McKnight said.
