The Rogers bowling team didn’t put together the regular season it envisioned.
But the Rams (4-9) are looking forward to today’s South Puget Sound League tournament, from which the top five teams will advance to the district level.
The Rams defeated Spanaway Lake but lost to both Graham-Kapowsin and Bethel during the final week of the regular season.
Head coach Justin Wisness said his team wasn’t that sharp after a two-week layoff. The Rams didn’t practice during Christmas break and only had two practices before they faced Bethel on Jan. 7.
“We were a little rusty,” Wisness said. “We had a tough match against Bethel in our first game back. Bethel beat Emerald Ridge last week, too. They are just on a roll.”
The Rams are focused on today’s league tourney.
“The season has (gone) by really fast,” Wisness said. “We want to make it to districts as a team.”
Wisness said the Rams focused on fundamentals as they prepared for the postseason.
“We aren’t just thinking about this tourney, but are thinking about the future,” he said. “Right now, we are preparing for the next couple of years, rather than just putting a Band-Aid on this season.
“We’re working hard and doing the best we can.”
Wisness said Amy King and Alyssa Feller have the ability to be cornerstones of the program in years to come.
