Mr. McGhie speaks to his team during a match.

This year there have been some new additions to the Curtis bowling teams. Aside from new bowlers, there are two new coaches. Mr. Troy McGhie has replaced Ms. Alicia Isasi-Endress as coach the for the boys’ bowling team, and Mr. Paul Barrett replaced Mr. Matt Gonzalez as the coach for the girls’ bowling team.

This year, the boys’ bowling team’s new coach is very confident in the team’s chances at winning this year.  “If we get more of our guys to get consistently high scores, we have a good chance at making playoffs this season,” said Coach McGhie. So far, the team has already had a few matches but they have not had a winning season.

                  

For the girls’ team, Mr. Barrett said, “the chances of us making playoffs is pretty good. We have some good returning players and some new bowlers that are good.” However, the girls have not had a winning season either.  Both new coaches have a lot to live up to, and they have new styles.  “My coaching is more of a mental coaching style, while Ms. Isasi was an Olympic certified bowling coach. I’m nowhere near her,” said Mr.Mcghie.

Mr. Barrett is also following up an experienced bowler. “My style of coaching is different from Mr. Gonzalez’s style because he has bowled for a number of years, so I need to learn the coaching that I need to so I can coach better,” said Mr. Barrett.
