South’s Tyler Newell – Wichita Area Athlete Spotlight Presented By WSU Tech

Tyler Newell of Wichita South was voted the Wichita Large School Preseason Boys Bowler of the Year. Newell took seventh at regionals and 13th at state last season for the Titans.

While Newell considered last season a success, he has bigger plans for the 2022-2023 season.

“My expectations this year for myself is making state and finish the year off as a top 5 state finisher,” Newell said. “Last year I won the Titan Classic Tournament and I would love to be able to go back-to-back. As a team, I want us to try our hardest and to try and make state as a team.”

There are some parts to Newell’s game that he thinks about that others might not even consider.

“Being a lefty helps sometimes but also makes a struggle sometimes because of how lane conditions are or trying to adjust to new things,” Newell said. “A weakness for me is trying to find the right bowling ball for the right lane so I can be able to place in the tournaments I have medaled in. I’ve been practicing on the correct ball choice on harder lanes to make me better for the season.”

After high school, Newell is interested in continuing his bowling career, while also pursuing a degree in engineering in automotive diesels.
