Q: How did you fall in love with your sport?
A: I had bowling birthday parties when I was preschool and elementary age and thought it was really fun. Then, in middle school, I joined the Saturday morning kids league at the Hoe Bowl and that is where my enthusiasm for this sport really grew.
Q: What’s your favorite moment as an athlete in that sport?
A: My favorite moment so far has to be bringing the 2019-2020 George Cotich Memorial Tournament trophy back to Catskill High School after many years and having the high series for this tournament.
Q: What is your favorite sports moment as a fan?
A: As a fan my favorite sports moment right now is the return of NASCAR — the first sport to resume during the pandemic.
Q: What athlete do you look up to the most and why?
A: Australian, Jason Belmonte, being 13-time major bowling championship winner and first bowler to use 2 handed technique is my choice for favorite athlete and also the reason I choose him.
Q: Best advice you’ve received from a coach, mentor or teammate in your sport?
A: Coach Reyngoudt gives great advice all the time, but I think the best has to be: ‘Do not focus on the other team, do not bowl you game down to their’s and overall have fun.’ (I also have to thank Frank Zalasko, manager at the bowling alley because he talked me into joining the high school team when I started eighth grade)
