Transcript New team BOWLS 1 he biggest suprise and most well kept secret in sports may have been the bowling team. With no players returning from the past year, (ranked no. 7 in the nation) the new team rolled to an unexpected 24th spot in the nation for the fall season. Ronnie Sherman, the team captain, and the highest ranked player by average, is very hopeful about the teams talent developing a promising image in the future seasons. Starting out the season with tournaments in conference play in the North Kansas City Pro Bowl, UH men's team finished 10th, while the women's team finished 8th in the teams standings. In the important na- tional collegiate match game championship held in St. Louis, Mo., Houston finished 25 out of 64 schools from across the nation, bowling a team average of 205. The travelling team was comprised of two first and second men's teams and one women's team; the teams were named by coaches Bill Schwehr and Jean Cope. They selected on the basis of qualifying scores, tournament scores, attitude, commitment, and fund raising participation and as an implied rule, according to Keira Clark, it helped to be a "little crazy". The team more or less is on its own in the practice sessions, consistently improveing their game. "Ronnie will periodically spot me while I am throwing and tell me what he is seeing wrong", says Kiera Clark."And usually, that is how we learn from each other." The coaching from Schwehr and Cope was focused more on it's way to the top tournament play. Skip Guthrie, lead off bowler for the team said he spends about 10 hours a week practicing. "During practice, the seriousness is not all there as it is in tournament play." The concentration needed for tournaments also lended well to Guthrie's summertime tournaments and may work well for him when he joins the pro circut. Lara Weddel never thought the time she spent in junior bowling leauges would lead to the Cougar team, but she said that she quickly learned the social aspects of team bowling. "I enjoy the fun times with the team, especially on the long road trips." Weddel also bowled on two other leauges over the semester. The bowling team had the time consuming responsibility of raising their own financial support through sponsoring bowl-a-thons, candy and T-shirt sales. According to Guthrie, "the schools that are ranked no. 1 and 2 happen to be well financed by the university, thereby, more time is available for them". It is not unheard of for a serious player to invest about $750.00 minimum for their personal equipment of their own bowling balls, shoes, etc., let alone money for the team to travel. It would be almost a luxury for a player to receive some extras, such as a new ball. For a good team that's just getting started, that may not be too much to ask. The team spirit paid off to accomplish a surprising finish for the fall semester; and hopes were high for the national tournament in Las Vegas, where they focused on seeing pins fall and not rolling snake eyes.- Gilbert Sifuentes photo by Gil1 tuentes 1^ reshman Keira Clark lends her ten years of bowling experince to the team.

That doesn't go a long way when you have to buy all of your own equipment." -Skip Guthrie "Having a good time is very critical to good bowling ."-Keira Clark Sports Bowling 163
