Lowellville’s Boys and Girls Bowling Team

   Lowellville’s boys’ and girls’ bowling teams look promising for the 2023-24 year. To start, the boys’ record as of publishing is 4-9.  This season, there are an equal number of players on the JV and the varsity teams. Connor Anderson, Tyler Betlyn,  Dom Encarnation, Kyle England, Vance Esenwein, Donovon Gomez, and Anthony Vrabel play on Varsity. Tyler Betlyn, Dom Blomgren, Levi Moore, Chris Phillips, Spencer Simione, John Swanson, and James Watson play for the JV team. Mrs. Carrine Esenwein is the coach of both the boys’ varsity and junior varsity teams. When asked how the teams would do this year, she strongly believes they will finish with a winning record. Mrs. Esenwein became a coach because bowling has always been a part of her life. Since the age of ten, she has bowled consistently. Becoming the coach of the boys’ team allows her to spread her experience to students and helps her get to know some of the students better.

     The girls’ bowling team has fewer players but is still a consistent threat to opponents. As of now, they have a record of 2-11. Seniors on the team include Sophia Alfano, Mia Mangine, and Destiny Richards. The only junior on the girls’ team is Maddie Esposito, while the sophomores are Abby Grimes, Laila Stevens, and Krystalin Vinion. Last, but certainly not least, is Kayla Weinreber, who is the only freshman. Ms. Freed, also a teacher at the school, is the coach of the girls’ team. Ms. Freed decided to become the coach because of Mrs. Esenwein, one of her friends. Ms. Freed also has a background in coaching and teaching, as she is one of the school’s PE teachers. Her goal for this year’s team is to focus on having “..neutral thoughts that won’t get in the way of our abilities and make sure we all show up as a team and support each other.”

     Vance Esenwein, a member of the boys’ team, and Sophia Alfano, a member of the girls’ both had good things to say about their season. Vance’s best score of the year was 225, and Sophia’s was 157. While Sophia is a senior, she wishes she could bowl again next year. When asked what their highlights of the season were, Sophia responded, “Driving to the games and being able to hang out with friends.”        

     Vance said, “Bowling my first 200.”
