South’s Aviana Ordonez – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Kaniper Agency

By Hayden Swope 

Salina South’s Aviana Ordonez, a bowling athlete, was chosen as the Kaniper Agency Athlete of the Month. Ordonez has 11 career wins and 22 top five varsity finishes, and hopes to add on to that this season. 

“I prepared for this season by ensuring my mindset was set on what I want to accomplish during this bowling season,” Ordonez said. “A weakness I want to overcome is to make sure that I am a strong and capable team leader.”

Bowling a season high of 289, Ordonez has big aspirations to grow that number for her senior season. 

“Some goals for this upcoming bowling season my senior year is to bowl a 300,” Ordonez said. “A second goal is to place first or second in the state competition in March.”

With HOSA, bowling, and unified bowling taking up much of her time, Ordonez plans to continue them after high school. 

“My future plans after high school are to attend Baker University and to major in Exercise Science,” Ordonez said. “While attending Baker, I will be joining the bowling team. I will be a part of another great team at this University and hope to be able to call them my family like I do here in Salina. Having built the experience of being a student, athlete, and working as a CNA, I have set aside time for the sport that I love so much. I know that time and dedication is what is needed in order to succeed in bowling along with all other aspects of my life.”
