The Black and Gold 1975
Confidence Proves Key to Boys' Pursuit of State Title
Confidence. That was the key that opened the door to the McKinley Boys' Bowling Team's first official State Championship.
The keglers began the season by beating Kalani and Kailua by identical 3-0 margins. But the Tigers found the going rough, dropping two of three games to Kaimuki.
The regular season ended with wins over Farrington 2-1 and Roosevelt 3-0.
In round robin action, the Micks were stunned by Roosevelt 0-3, but rallied to trounce Kaimuki, 3-0, and Farrington 2-1, to win the OIA title.
In a dream come true, the Tigers swept the State crown, competing against Kamehameha, St. Louis and Baldwin High Schools.
The girls' season was a dismal one. The season started with a 2-1 victory over Kalani followed by three straight losses to Kailua. the Mick girl bowlers then smashed Kaimuki, 2-1, in an exceptional performance, but fell apart and dropped three straight to Farrington. They closed their season with a disappointing 1-2 loss to Roosevelt.
