Striking to state

Wyatt Ehr @wyattehr [Staff Writer]

Breanna Smith, Junior, has just won the Class 2A state qualifier in Waverly, and is now ready for state. While she has reached one of the greatest achievements in bowling, making it state, it was no walk in the park. Like many bowlers, her season had its ups and downs. “The season was rough. Throughout the season i’ve struggled with very inconsistent scores in my games,” said Smith. But in the end her hard work did pay off.

“Qualifying for state was one of the best feelings ever. My team was extremely happy for me,” claimed Smith. While many people are shocked when they make it to state, Breanna was not. “I went in having the mindset that I was going to qualify for state, so I wasn’t surprised to make it. Although it was surprising considering that I was bowling bad,” explained Smith.

Although she expected to make it to state, she is still very nervous for the state meet. “I want to do better than last year which was 4th place,” says Smith. In preparation for state she is just going to keep practicing, and keeping a positive mindset. No matter what happens at state, it will not affect her work ethic. “Next year I will work harder, and try to be more consistent with my games,” claims Smith.

Come support Smith on Tuesday, Feb. 24 at Plaza Lanes in Des Moines where she will be trying to win the state title.
