Maggie Furhman, Junior- Waukee High School

Maggie has been involved with bowling since her freshman year.  When she first started she had only bowled for fun, and her average game would be in the 70's or 80"s.  Over the past three years she has worked hard on her game and has raised her average to 130.  Maggie is also the teams emotional leader.  She is the one that always comes to practice with a positive attitude.  She is the one that will lift everyone up when they are down on themselves.  It does not matter if you are on the varsity team or the JV team Maggie will treat you the same and make you feel good about what you are doing.
