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.


"Attending Mount Mercy Academy is one of the best decisions I could have made. Since day one they have challenged me academically, to strive and succeed. For the past two years at Mount Mercy, I received so much help from all the teachers. They are always open to help me with any questions I have. My teachers have even taken time whenever they can to help me to do well with upcoming tests and quizzes. With their help I have been on both honor rolls, and have been a scholar athlete."
