Penn Manor’s bowling team has shown extraordinary success over the past couple of seasons. The team secured numerous titles in the past couple of years, dating back to 2005.
Last year the bowling team showed an extraordinary 12 wins, only losing to Columbia and Elizabethtown High School and tying with York tech. Penn Manor will have four returning varsity players from last year’s season: Andrew Pete, Bryan Snyder, Eric Ederati, and Brendon Yarnell. They only lost one senior from last year, Greg Lehr.
The bowling team’s success is a product of hard work, lots of practice and bowling on tougher lane conditions.
Being section one champs in 2004-2005, 2006-2007 and 2008-2009 and then winning leagues in 2005-2006 and 07-08, the team shows that they have a lot of growing talent in a seemingly unexpected place.
However the season will not be without challenges.
“Spare shooting kills us every year in districts,” said Chris Vital. Vital will be coaching varsity, Dave Ederati will be coaching JV, and Neil Vital will be helping out both of the teams.
Chris Vital has very high expectations for this year’s team because of the successful previous seasons and victories the bowling team has brought Penn Manor. Although they have had tremendous success, Penn Manor is still looking to improve.
