The ten 10 clean white 4.5-inch pins once standing proudly now look down the lane in fear. Across those 60 feet of synthetic planks comes rolling down a ball. The sound of the impact echoes on the lanes and rolling noise slowly increases. The pins watch as the ball closes in and BOOM! A strike! And so, with the second game of the season passed, Jesuit’s Bowling team continues its win streak, with varsity bringing its A game to the lanes.
