The unified bowling team began the new season on Jan. 6 with practice and a competition every week. This team provides an open opportunity for any student regardless of their gender and ability. After concluding last year’s season, the unified bowling team continues working on their gameplay in order to carry on with the new season. So far, many bowlers said they have had a positive start to their season. 

Sophomore Alex Running said he was feeling content and excited to enter the new season because he already played for the team last year. 

“Honestly, I’m feeling pretty good. Whatever’s in store for me, I’m ready,” Running said. 

Joining the team is a new experience for freshman Verada Ellett. She said she was thrilled to join the team since she didn’t have the opportunity to join a unified bowling before coming to Inglemoor.  

“This is the only unified bowling team—they don’t have one in New York, and this is my last year being at Inglemoor,” Ellett said. “This is my first season, so I’m very excited!”

Peer coaches elaborated on challenges faced this season. Senior Evan Suarez said his only concern was “getting [team players] there on time.” With this concern also came improvement through team cooperation and new high scores. 

“One of the goals achieved was team cooperation and beating my high score,” said Running. Peer coaches have also attained achievements such as helping team players improve their game play. 

“I got 150—that’s my accomplishment,” Suarez said. Peer coaches said they are certainly proud of the team members, especially as new coaches. They stated the main goal was to prioritize the happiness of the team players.

New peer coach and senior Kira Hamlin said the team players’ happiness is the most important outcome.

“When they do well in bowling and they’re happy [it]  just makes us happy to see them,” Hamlin said. 

Overall, this season has been filled with accomplishments and future goals. The main goal for the unified bowling team is to promote the need for more members.

“[We want] more people to come out,” Suarez said. 

The bowling team is small in comparison to other teams, so they need more members. 

  “Compared to the other schools, we have a pretty small team, so we definitely need more people involved,” Hamlin said. 

Overall, the unified bowling team has conquered the season through their achievements, their challenges and becoming closer as a team. This team has set strong goals such as maintaining high scores and expanding the team for the upcoming season, which builds a foundation for success.
