Nina Frees of Salina South had a successful 2021 bowling season, finishing 30th at the 5-1A Tournament.
This season, though, Frees has bigger aspirations and it all starts with being a leader on the Cougars team.
“My goals for this season is to compete and win with my team,” Frees said. “And push each other to become better bowlers mentally and physically.”
Frees had two areas of her game she felt like needed to be worked on in the offseason in order for her success to continue and even grow this season.
“Some things I am focused on improving this year would be staying more accurate when throwing different lines on the lane,” Frees said. “My weaknesses were not figuring out the bowling pattern till the middle of the first game. So figuring it out before the first game starts would help a lot.”
Outside of bowling, Frees also plays golf and softball for Salina South. Next season, Frees plans on playing softball and majoring in criminal justice at the University of Central Missouri.
