The Penguins started the season with three new varsity members. Along with the experienced members from the 2016 District Runner-up team the Penguins began with a decisive (16-11) match victory over Archbishop Chapelle High School. Leading the way was Danielle Poussard’s game leading 225 game along with Linzie Bladsacker’s 199 game.
The bowlers followed that up with another convincing victory over Chalmette High School (21-6). Once again leading the way was Danielle Poussard with a 532 Series with a high game of 194, Linzie Bladsacker with a 462 Series and high game of 165, along with Lauryn Hartsell’s 448 Series and high game of 157.
In the third match of the season the Penguins took on HRHS scoring a (23-4) victory. In a team victory all players bowed well earning a season high team series of 2547 (at the time).
In the State Baker Tournament held in Baton Rouge on February 4th the Penguins finished in 4th place. All Varsity and Junior Varsity members bowled well. The team missed finishing in third place by one pin.
In our biggest match of the season so far, the Penguins came back to Earth. The team had a rough game loosing to the Crescents (18-9) for our first loss of the season. After the match the team rededicated itself to win out the rest of the games.
In our first match since the Cabrini loss the Penguins came up against Bonnabel High School. Bonnabel boasts the District leading high average bowler with an average of 177. It would be up to our number one bowler to go head-to-head with their best bowler and Danielle Poussard was up to the task. Though Danielle lost the first individual game (225 – 201), she was able to sweep the final two individual games with a 193 game and a 200 game. The Penguins soared throughout the game with Linzie Bladsacker throwing a 441 series, Lauryn Hartsell rolling a 464 series, and Lauren Michel rolling a 457 series. In a complete game the AOL bowlers boosted their best series to 2652.
