Season Recaps

Girls Bowling Season Recaps


Varsity: 2-3 in Conference, 4-7 Overall, 4th place in Conference 

  • Rachel Cooper, Sportsmanship Award
  • Natalie Cura, MVP, All-Conference

"Our Lady Warriors fought hard the entire season on and off the lanes. We won several dual matches. Yet, we struggled as a team during tournament play. Several highlights for the season include many games above 200 and two ladies obtaining a series above 600 (Hailey Cairney and Natalie Cura). Natalie Cura made it to Sectionals for the season and competed with some of the best high school bowlers in the area from the Regionals. Overall, we will grow into the state level championship team in the coming years for the Lady Warriors."


Varsity: 12-2 Overall, Regional Champs, Sectional Champs, 3rd in State   Team Picture
JV: 5-7 Overall

  • Mirica Yancey: All-Academic, Sportsmanship, MVP, State Qualifier
  • Serenity Quintero: MVP, State Qualifier
  • Natalie Cura: State Qualifier
  • Katelyn Orisek: State Qualifier

The Varsity team won 12 dual meets and won trophies in 5 of our 6 regular season tournaments.  Of those 5, we won 3 and finished second in the other 2. Waubonsie won the DeKalb tournament for the 5th straight year. We won the IHSA Regional tournament for the 4th year in a row, and the IHSA Sectional tournament for the 4th time in the last 6 years. Mirica Yancey took individual honors at the regional event and Serenity Quintero took individual honors at the Sectional tournament. Both girls finished in the top 20 at the State tournament finishing 20th and 16th respectively. The team finished in 3rd place. Waubonsie has now tied the state record of making the state tournament 6 years in a row. In the process Waubonsie has taken home 5 state trophyies.  Of our 5 starters, 3 will be graduating in May. Our 3 graduating seniors have scholarship offers to bowl on the college level.  We will begin next season with 2 returning players (one sophomore and one junior).

The JV Bowling team started the year looking for bowlers. When we finally got 5 bowlers, we had a hard time keeping all five healthy. From the garden variety sicknesses to a knee injury and a concussion from a kayak, we seldom entered a meet or tournament a whole team. When we had all five bowlers, though, we did well (3rd place at Buffalo Grove). Over time, the girls rallied together, supported each other and continued to improve throughout the year. The only bowler with team experience will graduate at the end of the year and the remaining four will take their learned experience into next year’s competition.

The Girls Bowling Team won all 14 of our dual meets and we won 2 of our 6 tournaments, winning the DeKalb tournament for the 4th straight year. We earned a trophy in each of the 6 tournaments in which we competed. Also, we won the IHSA Regional tournament for the 3rd year in a row, and the IHSA Sectional tournament for the 3rd time in the last 5 years. We finished 5th place at the State tournament and will be returning 3 of the 5 starters for next season.

This was a season of rebuilding/reloading for our team.  Three starters from the 2014 championship team graduated last year with only 2 girls with tournament and state experience returning.  The off season was particularly important.  Our 3 sophomores, 2 JV players we moved to varsity and a sophomore who transferred in from another school, along with our 2 juniors began practicing during the spring and continued through the summer and the fall.  The players competed in summer leagues, camps and scholarship tournaments.  As a result of this pre-season work along with our regular season practice, the team was ranked in the top 5 in the state by mid-season.  Going into the post season Waubonsie was ranked second in the state.  The team went on to win the Conference title for the 6th straight year, the Regional championship for the 2nd straight year, and captured 3rd place in the IHSA State tournament.  Waubonsie is just the fourth school in Illinois history to win a State trophy in four straight seasons.
