Transcript Cougar Bowling Club Mfts best bowlers strike it up every tyoubay ui$kt! Every Monday evening in the University Center Games Room, students gathered to participate in a sport filled with the essential elements of competition: teamwork, sportsmanship, a desire to win, and cold beer. Members of the UH Cougar Bowling Club engaged in this friendly competition at Cougar Lanes because to them, bowling is more than recreation: it's a passion. Bowlers from beginners to experts participated in the 3-game league, and competed for awards given at the Cougar Bowling Club banquet each April. Awards given included league champions, high game, high series, and Cougar Bowler of the Year. The competition between the 8 three-man teams fueled camaraderie between bowlers, and friendships were forged which carry on away from the alley. "It's a great chance to unwind, do something I really enjoy, and hang out with some great people," said Carl Bishop, a junior civil engineering major. The top bowlers in the CBC were eligible to participate on the UH Cougar Bowling Team, and had the opportunity to compete against the best collegiate bowlers from all over the country. This included local tournaments and events all over the country. The 2001- 2002 Cougar Bowling Team competed in tournaments in Austin, Amarillo, Atlanta, St. Louis, and Las Vegas, among other places. The team competed valiantly throughout the season, including several top five finishes and qualifying for College Bowling USA's Sectionals Tournament in Oklahoma City. A strong performance at Sectionals earns a team the right to compete in the National Bowling Championships. Junior architecture major Brad Baines pointed out, "There was a much greater commitment by team members this year, and I think that only helps our chances next year." For some, the CBC was a chance to relieve some stress. For others, it was a chance to improve their bowling skill. No matter what their reason for joining up, everyone enjoyed the bowling experience at Cougar Lanes. Come on, Coogs... strike it up! -Matthew E. Caster The thrill of victory vs. the agony of defeat Junior architecture majors Brad Baines and Chris Makara walk away from their first ball with very different results. Baines savors his strike while Makara ponders his trademark pocket 7-10 split. CBC members often had miniature competitions amongst themselves to help them get ready for the real competitions against other bowling clubs. Photos by Matthew E. Caster JL5U/ Organizations
