Bowling had their work cut out for them Monday, Jan. 9, when they defeated Elk Grove in a conference meet at AMF Rolling Meadows Lanes 2718 to 2706. Elk Grove is currently second in conference with 66 points, ahead of Prospect who is in third with 63.
The Knights also faced a difficulty as one of their bowlers, Sam Victor, was sick and couldn’t compete said Coach Greg Troyer. In Victor’s place, Sophomore Meghan Mulcahy stepped up to finish the varsity line-up and help the Knights win.
Seniors Michelle Bergeron, Allison Walsh and Cassie Bach led the team with combined scores of 597, 576 and 530 respectively.
Bergeron said she was happy the team bowled well when they were down a normal varsity player. She also said the win is more important against Elk Grove because they are ahead of Prospect by one place in conference.
Troyer hopes with this victory, the team will continue to play well consistently, which has been their main issue this season, bringing this success to the conference finals in three weeks.
The Knights also want to take the lead in conference and are only half a match back from the conference leader, Hoffman Estates, who has 68 points.
“Hopefully from this point we can right the ship and finish strong,” Troyer said.
