Sr., Bowling, Lockport
Zabierek, second individually, was a key Jan. 19, when the Porters won the SouthWest Suburban Blue title.
“I had my high six-game series (a 1,416) and we broke school records for single game, three-game series and six-game series as a team,” she said. “It was such a great day.”
Entering high school, Zabierek chose bowling over basketball.
“I decided that I didn’t like basketball at all anymore,” she said. “I was over it.”
Jr., Bowling, Plainfield N.
For Berndl, the season’s highlight came Dec. 8.
“We shot our school record high game of (1,179) at ThunderBowl (in the Lincoln-Way East Invitational),” he said. Berndl has been bowling regularly since the summer before his freshman year.
“My mom took me to a league and I just learned really fast,” he said. “A lady offered to give me free lessons and she taught me how to approach, hook, all that stuff.”
The Wildcats didn’t qualify for state Saturday but still have a chance at a high finish in the Illinois Cheerleading Coaches Association state meet Feb. 9 in Springfield.
Enright started cheerleading at an early age and is following the footsteps of her mother, Lorie, who was a cheerleader at Reavis High School before there were state competitions.
“She stretches me all the time,” Enright said. “She’s a team mom. She’s my hero and supports me and the team.”
Sr., Swimming, Joliet
Wooten, a Joliet West student, said he enlisted in the Marines and is going to boot camp in August. He started swimming freshman year.
“My mom pushed me because she swam at Lockport,’’ he said. “Swimming changed my life, got me in great shape for boot camp.”
Wooten medaled in the 50 and 100 free and two relays last season in the conference and sectional meets. His goal is to “make all-conference so I can get my picture on the wall at school.’’
