Before this past week, many students at Monument were completely unaware that their school had a bowling club. On Monday, January 23rd, a picture of Monument senior Piolo Jule Pasia was featured in the sports section of The Berkshire Eagle.
Piolo Jule Pasia, also known as Brian by his friends, is a newcomer to the club. “I joined because I had nothing to do in the winter and I was like ‘Hey, free bowling’,”stated Pasia. Although he is only a first year member of the club, Pasia is not a stranger to the game. “I’ve bowled every now and then with my friends and family. I thought it was fun and I was fairly decent at it,” he added.
According to Pasia, the club is not a huge commitment, unlike other winter activities. Practices are only twice a week, usually Mondays and Tuesdays, while their matches are on Fridays. “It allows you more time to do other things too because it’s a club and not an official team.”
So far this season Pasia has been impressed most by Drury’s Bowling Club. “Drury is nasty, they are surprisingly really good,” As for the Monument Club, the best bowler is the legend Tommy Hankey Jr. “Tommy is by far the best we have,” Pasia said. In 2015 Hankey won the u16 National Bowling Championship.
The Bowling Club’s next match is scheduled for Friday, January 20th at Cove Bowling Lanes in Great Barrington.
