The Saline Hornets boys' bowling team should be in the hunt once again for an SEC Red conference title. Saline settled for second last year after a strong start to the season. All-state bowler Neeko Robison has graduated from last year's team. Coach John McMullen said the Hornets have at least three bowlers of making the state tournament this year. 

"I think Brandon Martin, Chris Graber and Jacob Cornish all have the potential to make it to the state meet this year. All three could do some damage this year," McMullen said.

Martin is a senior.

"He's been around a long time and he's a good bowler. We just need to get him going a little sooner," McMullen said.

Graber is a junior who has bowled since his freshman year.

"He knows how to make adjustments. He listens to coaches and he has a good head on his shoulders," McMullen said.

"So far we're doing well. We need to clean up some spares and learn a few things. We're going to need to get better to beat some of the top teams," McMullen said.

The Hornets second place finish last season came after three straight SEC Red Championships.

"We can get back to the top again. But we're going to need every one to step up their game a little bit," McMullen said.

Seniors Bill Poet and Rigel Yax have graduated from junior varsity and expected to contribute. Juniors Sean Flavin and Jacob Learman are also expected to rotate into the top 5.
