Mount Mercy Academy's Varsity Bowling team finished the season in third place with a record of 36 wins and 20 losses. They also finished the season with the second highest pin total in Monsignor Martin League play.

The team was led by four year veteran and captain Susan Thomas, who was also named first team All Catholic with a 150 average. Second team All Catholic honors were earned by Kelly Thomas, who had a 145 average.  Also making significant contributions to the team were Abby Zdrojewski, Val Boeck, and Liz Acevedo.

The Junior Varsity team finished the season 26-30. With the exception of captain Angelica Miller, the team consisted of newcomers Rachael Howard, Sheryl Little, Emmaline Robinson, Claire Termini, Micaela Michnik, and Destiny Overton.

Senior Rachael Howard led the team with a 113 average. Coach Fred Kirisits is anticipating another strong showing next year, since each team will be losing only one Senior bowler.


"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
