It was an intense matchup when Local 4′s Kim DeGiulio stopped by Westland’s Town N Country Lanes for our Winter 4Frenzy. Throwing strikes and playing to win are two teams of varsity bowlers with some serious skills.

Watch their story in the video player above.

The players are from Livonia’s Stevenson High School, and Westland’s John Glenn High Schools. The players were focused and passionate.

Coach Tom Colosimo from Stevenson and Coach Ralph Cabildo from John Glenn share what it takes to compete.

Coach Ralph Cabildo: “We try to keep it fresh, even at practices we’ll have the boys challenge the girls or just split up the team and have fun.”

Coach Ralph Cabildo: “At the same time, to be competitive, we want to put them in the mode where every shot counts.

Even though it’s a physical sport, both coaches teach their players how to stay strong mentally and how to handle pressure.

“I love my kids, they’re like my own daughters,” Coach Colosimo said. “It’s what I live for, it’s what I coach for.”
