It was a trip to summer camp that introduced Salina Central High School’s Keaton Myers to bowling. From then on, Myers knew he wanted to continue pursuing the sport like his father.
“I first started bowling at a summer camp in 2014. I wasn’t too good, but it was fun enough for me to stay interested in it until I could compete through the school. My dad was an avid bowler back in the day, so he was happy to help me practice for the team,” said Myers.
Now a freshman at Central, Myers said he’s enjoyed the team atmosphere and being part of a great program.
“The Salina Central bowling team is very welcoming and positive. All of my teammates have something unique to offer and none of them are exactly the same,” Myers said. “My favorite memory as a bowler is going to Taco Bell after a meet and learning it was one of my friends first time eating there.”
Myers said he is unsure about his future after high school. At the moment he is focused on grades, bowling, being part of the D&D Club, the gifted program, band, Boy Scouts and theater.
“I am not sure what I am going to do after I graduate but I plan to use the rest of high school to figure it out. I would love to keep bowling in my life in some way. Whether I find an amateur league or just do it for fun, I would like to keep doing it,” said Myers.
