Strike! UDJ Bowling is Back


Conor Place '22, Writer

Over the past few weeks, winter sports have been starting back up throughout the state. Here at University of Detroit Jesuit, the bowling team is among our most successful teams in any season. Coming off of a delayed season also cut short due to COVID, the Cub bowlers look to take advantage of a hopefully normal season. With U of D’s veteran squad, experience in matches and tournaments set them aside from other teams in the league. Let’s take a look at some of the senior bowlers making a start this year:


Joe Wager

Joe has lived and breathed bowling since he was around five or six. Since then, it has taught him a lot about adapting and adjusting to the adversity he faces, and in some ways, he’s applied these lessons to his own life. Being a part of the 2019-20 team that won regionals, he has high hopes for the bowling team this season.




Jack Sisco

Jack is a 4 year varsity bowler and had the privilege of qualifying for state singles sophomore year. He had a chance to do it again his junior year but was ultimately shut down due to COVID. He was a part of the 2019-20 team that was the first team to win regionals in U of D bowling history.









Nathan Nazareno

Nathan started bowling as a way to make friends at his old school but has turned it into an opportunity to compete with himself and against others. He enjoys connecting with his fellow teammates and opponents especially since COVID has blocked off interactions with others in the bowling alley. He has high hopes for this year, expecting that the team brings home some hardware as well as a few individual outstanding performances.
