Tanner Cunningham of Hutchinson was chosen The Alley Bowler of the Month for November. Last season was Cunningham’s first season of high school bowling, so he is hoping to make great strides
“Last season, I learned that sometimes you are going to have a bad day and you just have to accept that, you can’t get in your own head,” Cunningham said. “If you aren’t bowling great then that’s just how you learn to bowl better. Every shot can teach you something different, even if it’s a terrible shot you can learn from it.”
One of the things Cunningham has learned since he started his bowling career is how to control his emotions.
“I would say that one of my strengths as a bowler is my attitude,” Cunningham said. “Sometimes I can get a bit frustrated, but I can pull myself back and try something new. If I throw a bad shot it’s nobody else’s fault but my own. I can help others when they are struggling and tell them to try something new when what they are doing
Despite being an inexperienced bowler, Cunningham still has desires to bowl at the next level.
“After high school, I would like to continue being a bowler, whether it be for a college or just leagues and tournaments,” Cunningham said.
