The Millers had a great start to their season with a 5-2 win against Caldwell high school on Thursday, December 1st. The rest of the season is, obviously, unpredictable right now, but the team hopes to beat their 13-4 record from last year. The highest record was achieved in the 1999-2000 year, with a 17-4 record.

Seniors Jack Nirenberg, Lauren Potechin, and Anthony Amorosa all bowled over 200 in one of their games. Combined with JV and Varsity, the Millers had an outstanding 1,029 pins knocked down the first game. Freshman Matthew Norflus also contributed to today’s win with a 159 average.

Caldwell bowler Lorenzo Donoluk put up a competition for the Millers today with his 209 average and a remarkable 627 series.

Millburn Varsity bowlers are working hard to keep good scores up, as the Varsity team is currently seeking a 5th and possibly 6th starter for the team. Head Coach Carmen Guarino always tells the team that bowling “is a numbers game” as a reminder to do whatever is possible to keep scores up.

Some bowlers like freshman Daniel Sirota (the one who wrote this article), ended up having 7 consecutive days of bowling due to the practice schedule. He was practicing hard over the previous weekend which led into practice this past week, which was Monday through Wednesday in preparation for the team’s first match. Sirota also beat his personal high over the weekend with a 192.

While this may be the last time the team’s together for the week, they must remain in shape for their next match against Seton Hall Prep on Monday, December 5.
