With this year’s unified bowling season ending, they finished with a strike. The team won their district which led them to the 2022 state tournament, they wound up finishing in fourth place. 

Unified bowling is a sports team in which both people with and without intellectual disabilities can join together and compete at a high school level. 

Head bowling coach Phillip Burlingame said that there were many benefits to this year’s season, not just including their final win.

“The biggest benefit is working with and getting to understand students with disabilities,” said Burlingame. 

This season there were 21 bowlers which is the most they have ever had. 

The team takes bowlers from all skill levels and shapes them into the best player they can be. Burlingame said the players learn together and have fun throughout the whole season.
