New bowling teams garner high interest

Student interest is high for the girls and boys bowling teams that will be joining Archbishop Carroll’s winter sports roster, but not everyone who is interested will be able to join.

The school can only accommodate 15 students per team. The upperclassmen will be getting the open positions first.

“It is important to note that space for the team is limited due to lane availability,” said Mr. Tom Quintois, Carroll’s athletic director. 

A meeting will be held Thursday, Oct. 7, after school in the school auditorium for participants. Anyone interested in bowling who is unable to attend this meeting can contact Mr. Quintois, who is the bowling coach, via email at [email protected]

One person who plans to participate is senior Kat Philipp. 

“Mr. Quintois proposed the idea to us last year, and I thought it was awesome so I decided to join the team,” she said.

Team members can be involved in other activities besides bowling because of the team’s three-days-a-week schedule.

“I signed up for bowling this year because I thought it would be a great opportunity to stay involved and compete in another varsity sport without having the full commitment that field hockey and lacrosse have,” said Lydia Maione, a senior. 

The practices in addition to games will start the first week of December, and will be three days a week. Practice times will be 2:30-4:30 at Wynnewood Lanes 2228 Haverford Rd, Ardmore. A bus will be available for one way transportation from Carroll to Wynnewood Lanes for practices or games directly after school.

The boys bowling team is set to compete against La Salle College, Father Judge, Monsignor Bonner, Roman Catholic, St. Joseph’s Prep, Conwell- Egan, Devon Prep, Archbishop Ryan, and Archbishop Wood.

The girls bowling team is set to compete against Conwell- Egan, Archbishop Prendergast, Little Flower, Archbishop Ryan, and St. Hubert’s.
