Head Coach Damon Helgevold
“Overall I felt it was a really good weekend and we got to see a lot. I’m very happy our freshmen could get their feet wet in tournament play and excited to see our upperclassmen get back on the lanes. For as long as we were in the center both days, it would have been easy to just bowl mediocre and not finish strong. However, neither team did that and I couldn’t have been prouder of the way everyone bowled this weekend and extremely proud of the fight we showed when things got tough.”
Up Next
Columbia will get back in the lanes and compete in the Mid-States Championships in Wichita, Kan. on October 16-17.
