CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) -- It's a new year, but the Coronavirus is still here in 2021 and sports teams are still adjusting to the new normal to compete in the activities they love, like bowling.
Plaza Lanes in Corinth is home to several bowling teams including the Kossuth Aggies. Senior Bryce Bullard said the numbers in that match were a bit low, but not because the pins were dancing out of the way of the ball.
"Right now we ve got three people out," Bullard said. "All three of them are in the top five, we're definitely shooting lower numbers today than we usually do."
Bullard also plays football for the Aggies. He was on the edge of his seat all season, hoping they'd get through so bowling could happen.
"During football season a lot of my teammates were getting quarantined," Bullard said. "I was really afraid that this was going to be like that, but it hasn't been so far, we've gotten to play all of our matches, which is really nice."
In order to avoid canceling matches, the bowling teams have made a few key changes, like social distancing, limiting the amount of players on each lane and wearing masks throughout competition. But with cases on the rise, freshman Sally Kate Gardner was worried that the protocols won't be enough to keep the Aggies on the lanes.
"It's so fun, especially my teammates and everything," Gardner said. "It just feels like time is running out kinda, so I'm just trying to make the most of it."
The Aggies have a few matches remaining during its regular season. The regionals are on January 29th in Corinth and the state championships are February 3rd in Jackson.
