The JOMA Bowler of the Month is Mallory Cross of Buhler High School. Cross started bowling at the tender age of six after her parents placed Cross and her siblings into a Saturday morning league. Now a junior, Cross said she loves the atmosphere and being part of the team at Buhler.
“I love the family atmosphere. We really try to help each other and create a great environment for upcoming freshman and returning teammates,” said Cross.
Also, a member of the marching and concert bands at Buhler, Cross somehow finds time to be part of the FFA as well.
“The attention to its students is what I love about Buhler. All the teachers want the students to succeed, and always offer help whether it be before or after school. They encourage us as students to do sports and clubs and cheer us on. They’re also flexible for when students miss school for sports and other activities,” said Cross.
Her future plans include more bowling and working towards a degree in Biology.
“I would like to bowl in college competitively as I complete my undergrad education and then work my way to getting a doctorate in Marine Biology,” said Cross. Her favorite moment as a high school bowler involved competing with a member of her family.
“My favorite memory is competing with my older sister McKinley when I was a freshman and winning the 5A-1A State Championship in 2019,” said Cross.
