For a fourth straight year, a Hubbard High student has been named the top female bowler.
Brittany Ferrara follows in the footsteps of two-time winner Samantha Dudley in 2010 and 2011 and Amanda Wess in 2012.
“Brittany takes her sport very seriously and is dedicated to the sport,” coach Carol Kozbial said. “Because of her talent and sportsmanship on and off the lanes, she is one of the most respected bowlers in the state.”
Ferrara was the All-American Conference’s 2012-13 points leader and was also selected as AAC player-of-the-year by the division coaches.
Her AAC average was 213, tournament average 208 and composite 209.
Ferrara had a Hubbard record of 538 for a two-game series (259-279) and participated in four OHSAA state tournaments — the last three of which ended in runner-up finishes.
Early last month, Hubbard, again, finished behind defending champion Coldwater.
“It was disappointing that we went in fighting, but came up short,” said Ferrara, who rolled 548 to place 18th in the individual phase of the state tournament. Ferrara was backed by fellow seniors Jenna Wise, whose 562 was the 14th-best three-game score at Wayne Webb’s, as well as Sarah Wise, Lauren Miller, Miranda Romano and Christina Leckfor.
“I feel throughout I did my best and contributed to the team as much as I could,” said Ferrara, who shot her first 300 in practice a few days before her school-record 538. “This year, a lot of people thought we wouldn’t make it out of districts, but we were determined and proved a lot of people wrong.”
