Congratulations Coach Friedl! Bowling Monday April 9th 2018 in the Oaklawn Sportsman's League at Orland Bowl, Friedl rolled a perfect 300 game and 760 series (203-257-300) using a couple of Storm Hy- Roads. The pearl Hy-Road led to the big last game.

GREAT testimonial from one of the JV kids I've been coaching. Lincolnway Central Freshman Tommy Martini. He competed Saturday January 7th, 2016 in the Southwest Suburban Conference (SWSC) Junior Varsity Bowling Tournament.

Congratulations to SWSC Conference Champ, Tommy Martini with 1292.

Freshman Martini was the top JV bowler for the 9 team conference tournament.

Thanks to the proud parents for allowing me to help their son.

Additionally, the first runner-up was a young man I worked with 2 years ago, Alex Kubitz from Lincolnway East. Kubitz rolled a very respectable 1274. Nice bowling boys.


Tip to Improve your Spare Game:


The lane is 40 inches wide. Don't aim for the 4.75 inch wide pin, relax and put the ball in the 21 inch zone around your target.


You have half the lane to pick up a single pin spare,

but, 13.25 inches for the 7 pin or 10 pin, in each corner.
