Hutchinson’s Brody Ummel – JOMA Bowler of the Month

By Matt Browning

Brody Ummel of Hutchinson has been the Salthawks’ top bowler all season, carrying the high series for the team at 753.

“I think the season for me so far has been pretty good,” Ummel said. “I’ve been able to average 200 or higher in all of our meets which is what my goal was for the season. My highlight of the season is when I bowled my record for sanctioned scratch series during our second meet, which ended up being 753 after three games.”

Being a consistent bowler has always been a challenge for Ummel in the past, but he has improved in that area this season.

“I think I improved more on my consistency than anything else since last year,” Ummel said. “I used to be a little bit more all over the place with each game last year, but now I’m starting scores from each game looking pretty similar.”

Ummel said he has high confidence in pins falling when his ball hits the pocket which is why his game has improved so much this season.

“There’s a pretty high chance that all the pins will find a way to fall down whether I hit high or low in the pocket,” Ummel said.

Ummel is unsure as to where he wants to go to college but he is sure he wants to study marine biology.
