Central’s Cheyenne O’Connor – Salina Bowling Spotlight Presented By The Alley

By Matt Browning

Cheyenne O’Connor of Salina Central was voted the Salina Area Preseason Girls Bowler of the Year. O’Connor had the best average (174) and Hi series (619) last season for the Mustangs.

While those numbers were good, in O’Connor’s mind, they were not good enough.

“Individually, I see myself bowling almost 200s every meet,” O’Connor said. “As a team, I see us possibly going to state.”

Being able to finish off frames is something O’Connor wants to improve on this season to achieve that scoring goal of being in the 200s.

“My weakness is not hitting the 10th pin all of the time,” O’Connor said. “I’m working on my 10 pins a lot more than I used to.”

To this point, O’Connor’s favorite memory as a Mustang bowler came as a freshman.

“A key moment was my freshman year when I got to bowl with my sister when she was a senior,” O’Connor said.

Whether it’s at a college or just for fun, O’Connor plans on bowling being an important part of her life after high school.

“I’m deciding if I want to go college and bowl or if I’m going to do online college and just bowl in leagues,” O’Connor said.
