Senior Kortney McAtee was introduced to bowling through her older sister Kendall McAtee, Kortney’s freshman year.

McAtee has big expectations for the team this year. The Lady Cards bowling team only graduated one player from last year’s team.
“Considering how far we went last year, we should go even farther this season,” McAtee said.
McAtee credits the team’s successes with many factors.
“We do a lot of practicing, but having an amazing coach like (Thomas) helps,” McAtee said. “(Thomas) is the best bowler I have ever met along with a motivational speaker, he knows just what to say to help me improve on my skills.”
McAtee’s role model is her mother.
“I defiantly look up to my mother the most,” McAtee said. “She has always been here for me not only as a mother, but also as a role model and best friend.”
In her senior year McAtee is looking forward to walking the stage at graduation, along with starting her college life and life after that.
In her spare time McAtee enjoys watching movies and relaxing after a long day at work or school.
McAtee credits her Junior Prom as her favorite high school memory.
“I went with my best friend and I don’t think I could have had a better time with anyone else,” McAtee said. “Plus my sister did my makeup and hair, I love being pampered.”
McAtee credits going to regionals her favorite bowling memory.
“I honestly never thought I was good enough to make it that far,” McAtee said.
