Alley Cats Update

By Bobby Gerome ‘21

The bowling team is coming off of a season in which they sent a player to the state tournament for just the second time in program history. This season, they hope to do the same. Although this year’s 18 man squad will be young, the team has a lot of potential, and can go far. Leading the team are co-captains Alex Madeja and Noah Virant. These two have been great leaders for the Wildcats so far, and will continue to show the ropes to a team of mostly underclassmen. They have also been fantastic bowlers in their three year tenure with the Wildcat program and will improve on what they have already accomplished.

Joining Madeja and Virant are multiple talented juniors that add strength and depth to the roster. These juniors are Dylan Huss, Ryan Wallenhorst, Ben Gehrlein, and Andrew Fornadel. Finalizing the varsity lineup this year are sophomores Alex Vacca, Colin Trahm, and Sean Ward, who won the title of most improved player last year. The JV lineup will also be fun to watch this season. Some notable names on the JV lineup are Robby Shepherd, and Larry McGarry. With all of the youth and talent they have, the Alley Cats have the potential to be great this year, and for years to come.
