The Catalyst

Taking on the hardwood, senior Kaitlyn Dickmeyer throws the ball at the NSAA Bowling Championship. With COVID-19 restrictions, this was one of the only times her mother Heidi Dickmeyer could watch her play. “I don’t think she quite grasps how cool it is that she will forever be in the books, in Nebraska’s high school bowling history, as being one of the firsts,” Heidi said. “We couldn’t be more proud of her.”

Senior Kaitlyn Dickmeyer rolls the ball down the lane. She thinks that she needs to improve on some of her skills. “The skill that I would like to improve for the next meet is to keep my elbow in,” senior Kaitlyn Dickmeyer said. “I need to make sure that I don't top the ball which is when you twist your wrist too much which will cause it to go more towards the left.”

Kirk gets set for his next turn to bowl. He competed in game one and scored a 149, as well as helping the team to a combined score of 172 in the Baker game. In the Baker game the team was able to work well together giving them the final points they needed to secure the victory. “Our teams work really well together,” Smith said. “They cheer each other on when they're bowling well, and they encourage each other if someone is struggling. Their attitudes are a big factor of their success.”

The Wildcat Unified Bowling team has worked constantly to accomplish what they have so far. The team has worked together for many weeks now and the members can rely on each other in games. “We put in a lot of effort into getting to this point in the season and having this chance,'' Parkman said. “In the practice before the meet, we attempted to achieve the scores that would get us the win in this meet, and passing them in practice gave us a huge confidence boost.”

Senior Nolan Hoff throws a strike at his latest bowling tournament. This was the third strike in a row bowled by Hoff. “Nolan bowls on patterns that professionals bowl on,” coach Jimmy Chavez said. “Those patterns are incredibly difficult because they have small margin for error, so you have to be more precise and know how to play your angles. This has significantly improved his technique.”
