Comment from coach:
“Emily leads by example and is truly an "alley rat".  On a daily basis you can see her at the bowling alley either working on her game or helping others learn and improve on their own.  The knowledge she possesses in bowling is far above not only for athletes at her own age, but equal or above those who have more years of experience.  She is a fan, student and teacher of the sport. As a coach, I know I can go to her for an honest view point to help the team improve. It is a joy and a privilege to have Emily in this program.”
