Latham bowlers exemplify sportsmanship
February 19, 2018
Our Latham Hawks student bowlers participated in two tournaments this month. On Saturday, February 10th, 14 students attended the event at Ryan Family Amusements in South Yarmouth. Their excellent achievements included high scores as well as advancement from using a ramp all season to being able to remove the ramp and bowl without it. The students were welcoming when two athletes from Sandwich were scheduled to bowl on our lanes – Latham students cheered them on just as much as their own teammates.
On Monday, February 12th, 13 of our students attended the bowling tournament at The Lanes in Mashpee. Students were again welcoming when a boy from Mashpee arrived with his family. He was not scheduled to bowl in the event, but our Latham kids asked him to join in with them to receive a medal. Many students again achieved their highest scores of the season, and the team ended the night with a pizza party to celebrate.
