Hutchinson’s Caleb Hernandez – JOMA Bowler of the Month

By Matt Browning

Caleb Hernandez of Hutchinson was chosen as the Hutchinson JOMA Bowler of the Month for February. Hernandez carries one of the top averages on the Salthawks’ team.

“It means a lot to be chosen as the JOMA bowler of the month,” Hernandez said. “I started bowling just a few months ago when I started working at the Alley and quickly realized it was something I could do and that I was decent at it. I just feel honored to receive any award that recognizes my talent.”

Since this is Hernandez’s first season bowling for Hutchinson, he felt some nerves once the season started, but has since grown more and more comfortable.

“I was nervous when the season started because it was my first year bowling and I had no idea how well I could do,” Hernandez said. “It started slow, but I quickly improved and started bowling way better than I ever thought I would be able to. I am looking forward to competing and most of all having fun doing something I enjoy.”

Goals for Hernandez were perhaps different from other high school bowlers with experience, but he felt like they were reasonable considering how novice he was with high school bowling.

“Going into the season I made a goal to consistently bowl 200’s and to be able to compete with everyone else,” Hernandez said. “I wanted to strive to be the best I could be.”
