By the confident swagger that the Northern bowling team radiated as they nonchalantly strolled into Northfield lanes, you could tell they knew they wouldn’t be watching the West Catholic Falcons soar away with a win under their wings.

The game turned out to be as nonchalant as the players. The Huskies dominated the Falcons by a landslide in an unconcerning game that never had its audience sitting on the edge of their chairs wondering who would take the win.

“Going into the game, our attitude was positive, but self-competitive to perform our best and beat our personal highscores,” Lizzie Lockwood, one of the captains of the team, reveals. Although the bowling team had a good feeling about their match against West Catholic, they didn’t let that stop them from bringing their best game. Instead of tossing their bowling balls down the lanes half-heartedly, knowing they would win either way, the Huskies took the game as a chance to improve their best scores.

“We were beating West Catholic by quite a few points, so when our last individual set came around, we were pretty much guaranteed a win. However, instead of bowling down to the other teams level, I pulled way ahead. This not only earned my team more points, but also beat my personal record with a score of 176,” Shelby Ostrander, another captain, explains.

Despite their confidence in a win, the Huskies still worked hard to beat their own individual bests and conquered the Falcons while doing so.
