During her freshman year, Avery McComber decided she wanted to join the bowling team after speaking with a teacher and a few members of the team.
“I thought it looked interesting with Mr. White from Computer Apps II along with a few bowlers in the class. They all said wonderful things and I truly just wanted something to do,” said McComber. “I love the atmosphere and chemistry the girl’s team has at South High. We all bowl on the same league year-round and have the same classes. We’ve been together for years now and they are all my friends. Other teams only hang out during their respective seasons. It’s not like that with bowling.”
McComber is active at Salina South. She serves as the HOSA President and BPA Vice-President. She is a member of the Drama Club, Link Crew and Mathletes. She also played golf her sophomore year.
“I enjoy being able to grow as I compete. Every day I hit the lanes I think about the changes I need to make to strike more and get my ball to react the way I want it to. I also enjoy being able to compete alongside my closest friends and our ability to help one another out,” said McComber.
The senior plans to attend the University of Kansas next fall and, of course, join the bowling club.
