Comment from high school coach about you:
“Jessica is one of the most talented and respectful athletes I’ve had the pleasure of coaching. She began her bowling career freshman year and had worked endlessly on her game. She is one of the top bowlers in the Mid-Suburban High School bowling conference. She finished her junior year with a 200.9 average due to her strength, speed, and consistency. Her work ethic, desire to learn the game, and her leadership is one of the reasons we are having a successful year. I believe she will be a great addition to any college team.”
