Waukon bowling teams return variety of veteran experience for 2020 campaign from last season’s championship efforts

The 2020 Waukon bowling season was scheduled to get underway this week as originally planned, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s not to say there hasn’t been some impact from the virus, especially in preparation for the competition season scheduled to begin Tuesday, November 24 when the bowling Indians host Tripoli.

“I am doing it different this season,” Waukon bowling coach Jerry Keenan said of his teams’ early practice sessions this season that were held simultaneously in previous seasons. “Boys are practicing on one night, girls on another night, and then I bring them all together and we work on Baker (games) the next night.”

This year’s squads are about as balanced as they have ever been since the bowling program began, as this year’s boys and girls teams have nearly equal numbers of participants this season. A total of 14 boys and a program-best 15 girls have reported for duty so far in this early season.

The bowling Indians were scheduled to get their quest underway at that Arrowhead Lanes home venue Tuesday, November 24 when they hosted Tripoli. The alley Tribe will then hit the road for its next two meets, traveling to Decorah December 4 and then to North Iowa December 11.
