Coach Doug Scott said Tyler had injured his knee during Thursday’s practice and he was forced to sit his senior out from bowling the remainder of practice. Coach said that Krepp had told him that he would win on Saturday, commenting on Krepp, Coach Scott said he thought Krepp has been very consistent this year and has been one of his leaders on the team both scoring and team spirit. He does what I ask him to do and that’s what makes winners, Krepp earned this victory today and I expect better things to come in the upcoming weeks leading to the State Finals in February. Assistant coach Bob Gottschalk and I expect our team to bond together and excel heading into State team and singles competition.
