“I’m glad, and thankful, for the (sectional) experience,” Poetker said. “I’m looking forward to bowling in the offseason with my teammates. More experience is good. It should make us better in years to come.”
Patriots coach Barry Lapping described Poetker as, “an alley rat who’s totally into the sport,” adding that he is, “looking forward to having (Poetker) for two more good years in the program.”
Stevenson assistant coach assistant coach Jim Feurer said, “Matt is one of our most skilled bowlers. When he’s ‘on,’ his strike is explosive.”
