Kapaun Mount Carmel’s Patrick Bloomer – JOMA Bowler Of The Month

By Matt Browning

Patrick Bloomer of Kapaun Mount Carmel was chosen as the JOMA Bowler of the Month for May. Bloomer was the 5-1A runner up this year for the Crusaders.

“I feel like when it mattered the most I showed up for my team,” Bloomer said. “Although we did not succeed in clinching another state title before our high school careers were over, I still think we accomplished many feats, some as a team and some individually.”

Bloomer had as successful a season as any in the state, with series scores in the 700s.

“I shot a 749, to set a personal record and a 719 the following week in the regular season,” Bloomer said. “At state I shot 710, which was just short of first at 713. Despite the outcome I am extremely proud of where I have come in just three short years.”

The progress Bloomer has made since his sophomore season is remarkable and he credits hard work and determination in getting him to where he was this past season.

“I started to join leagues so I could get the feel of a competition in a way,” Bloomer said. “I was also able to work with some of my future teammates on the technique, etiquette, and nuances of bowling. Even to this day I am learning new mechanics and strategies to further my physical and mental game. As they say, practice makes perfect.”
