Tonawanda News — With those pressures on her, Mussell has decided not to bowl in college because of the rigorous travel schedule.
While she plans to bowl in leagues, she will miss representing her school when she bowls because of the team element. She is focused on ending the season strong and putting on a strong showing at sectionals and a possible appearance at states.
“States would be like the icing on the cake,” Mussell said. “That would definitely make not bowling for a college a little less of a hard blow.”
Maduri has come to rely on Mussell away from the lanes as well. Maduri says she is her eyes for things she doesn’t notice around the team, something Mussell confirmed.
“I try to keep everything in order but not control everything,” Mussell said. “I try to keep everyone organized and together. If everyone starts having trouble I try to pick everyone up and help them out or give some good advice.”
Bowling has been part of Mussell’s life for most of her 17 years. She has bowled with her family and even met her boyfriend through the bowling team. With the end of her high school career in sight, Mussell is focused on getting the most she can from herself and her teammates before the end of her scholastic bowling career.Follow @tonanewssports on Twitter for complete high school sports coverage.
