  • Bowlers a mix of veterans and youth

    The Harrison County Bowling Team hit the lanes in late October with a veteran girls’ team and a boys’ team full of youth. Coaches Kurt Burgan, Bonnie Parks and Johnny Curtis have several bowlers on both squads who have the potential to bowl 200-plus games on a regular basis, but some still lack the experience in competitive bowling.

    The girls are led by seniors Ashley Hatfield and Amanda Gaunce, who are both veterans of state tournament bowling. 

    According to Burgan, they are leaders of the team and are both very capable of bowling 200-plus games.
