Since the restrictions have been put into place, the bowling team has been unable to have practices and competitions. 

For senior Beatrice Cook of the bowling team, the winter sports shutdown has a social effect as well as an athletic one.

“Being on the bowling team is so much fun that it’s like a little family to me,” Cook said. “With COVID pushing our season back, it’s like not being able to see your family.” 

Cook is a multi-sport athlete, also playing on two softball teams. In normal circumstances, she is always busy, but because of the pandemic and the shutdown, she has a lot more free time. 

“The thing about having all this downtime is that I’m not staying as active as I was,” she said. “Most athletes are healthy and active due to their sport. Without it, some just don’t have the same motivation.”

At the start of December, the bowling team had its first competition, against Central Catholic. 

“The girls team won against Central Catholic, but the boys team had a tough battle and ended up losing,” Cook said 

Since the restrictions have been put into place, the bowling team has been unable to have practices and competitions. 

We haven’t been able to practice or have any more matches due to the shutdown. We are hoping to start back up in January, but all we can do is hope.” Cook said.
