Despite losing half her squad to graduation, Coach VELMA SMITH anticipates another good season for the Leo bowling team. Returning regulars TEYARI JACKSON and RA-SHUN THURMOND are the co-captains, and DAMARI OWENS and DESHAUN APPLEBY move up from the junior varsity.

Coach Smith is justifiably proud of her team’s academic record, noting that four of Leo’s last six class valedictorians were bowlers, along with several honor students and members of the National Honor Society.
