The Walt Whitman Boys Varsity Bowling team showed steady improvement this year that included many highlights. “We had a good balance of bowlers this year,” said the 13-year veteran coach serving his last season at Whitman.  “The guys all improved steadily, both individually and as a team.  We had a decent average of 185.”

The Wildcats top scoring bowlers were: Russell Kielawa, who led with a 208 average, winning 26 match points placing him first in League III play. Russell posted some pretty impressive high scores at: 255, 258, 264, and 276. Russell will be attending Rice University next fall where he plans on studying Biochemistry.

Runner-up as high scorer was Nicholas Pasquini.  Nick is a junior with a 203 average and 24 match points. He ended the season tied for third-place in League III play and posted season high games of 253, 258, and 277.  Another junior scoring well was Jack Karmen with a season average of 185. Sam Moreno a senior this year posted an average of 184. Theodore Fisher, another fast improving junior bowled a season high of 254.

The Whitman team ended in 4th place in League III play. “We saw positive improvement from the guys this year,” said Coach Fast.  “It will be tough loosing seniors Russell Kielawa, Matthew Goodman, and Sam Moreno. It’s been fun coaching these guys, we had a good season with some well-earned highlights. We beat several really good teams that we have hardly ever beaten, like Northport twice, Smithtown, Middle Country, Hauppauge, and we even took a game from Commack.”

Congratulations Wildcat Bowlers!
