ROCKTON, Ill. (WIFR) Over the last four years, Hononegah boys bowling has zero sectional titles, but that means absolutely nothing because during that same period, the Indians have two runner-up finishes and two state championships and they are not too worried about that this year either.
Hono placed third at the Jefferson sectional this past weekend, but it believes it is coming together as a team at the right time.
The Indians say they had an off-day on Saturday as they averaged just more than 204 pins per player, which was down by almost 20 pins from their regional victory.
Head coach Brad Sommer says his team has come a long way since October.
"At the beginning of the season I don't think we were a true team," said Sommer. "I don't even know if they liked each other, but now towards regionals and conference, they are a team both on the lanes and off the lanes as well. You need that great chemistry to do something at state."
"Sectionals was rough," said senior bowler Jacob Sommer. "We didn't bowl the best but we all knew it was an off day. I'm really looking forward to what state has to offer and I think we're peaking at the right time."
