"All set, huh?" Mia said to Kenley as she set her gym bag on the patio. When the school year started the both of them were playing with the City League Bowling Team. But before then, they needed some practice!
Kenley nodded. "Yep, I'm ready! Are you?"
"Totally!" Mia replied. "How about you go first though."
Kenley eagerly grabbed the bowling ball out of Mia's hands and walked a good distance away from the pins. Relaxing her shoulders, she lined up the ball and swung her arm back...
The bowling ball slipped from her fingertips and sped towards the pins. Kenley held her breath as the ball knocked down every pin but one.
"Wow! On your first turn too!" Mia exclaimed. "You're going to be the best on the team for sure!"
"Thanks! But I think I just got lucky." Kenley smiled shyly as Mia gave her a high five.
After Kenley took another turn and got a spare, she set up the pins again for Mia.
Mia lined up her shot much like Kenley and let go of the bowling ball.
One pin went down, and another...and another....and another....
...until, she got a STRIKE!
"Woo-hoo!" Kenley shouted, pulling Mia into a hug. "That was amazing!"
Mia laughed. "Guess we both got lucky today!"
After a full game of bowling, the girls couldn't wait to meet their other team members. They had a good feeling they were going to win many games this season!
Have you ever been bowling before? What's your favorite sport? :)
