The Seymour Eagles Bowling team is struggling this season after losing their star bowler Corey Cox, one of the top bowlers in the state of Tennessee. He bowled a perfect score of 300 twice last year.
Even at that however, Seymour’s Coach Charles Ogle doesn’t think this year’s team is bowling up to its potential.
A win sometimes is just what the doctor ordered to get things turned around. Coach Ogle had this to say, “We lost our last two games. It’s good to have a win. We still need to pick up our game if we expect to win any of our last three. We are bowling below our ability. Maybe this win will get us out of our slump and we can turn things around.”
The girls did not play today because the Kings Academy does not have a girls’ team.
The Eagles and Lady Eagles face the Pigeon Forge Tigers the next two matches on December 14 and December 20 at 3:30 at the Pigeon Forge Community Center.
Seymour’s last match is after Christmas on Jan. 6 at the Sevierville CC at 3:30 p.m.
Post season play will begin after that.
