For Ron Bacon, the new head coach of the Shores bowling team, the sport has been a part of his life since age 5, and he has bowled recreational, in leagues, and in tournaments.

“Out of all the experiences I’ve had, coaching has been the best,” said Bacon, who replaces two-year coach Sam Gautraud, who resigned after leading the boys’ team to two straight City titles.

Bacon has been helping out with the bowling teams for the past few years, and this has led to him earning the position of head coach.

“The position (of assistant coach) kind of fell into place a couple years ago,” he said. “(Athletic director Ryan) Portenga called me and told me the team was in need of a coach and asked if I would be willing to coach or help coach. Another reason is my daughters Mady and Marisa were members of the team, so I didn’t want them, and the other members of the team to not be able to bowl due to not having a coach. Coaching the Mona Shores bowling team the last few years has been a great experience.”

Bacon said he likes bowling because it brings people together.

“I have met some really good people over the years and some amazingly talented bowlers also. The OK Black conference has some really good high school bowlers. I will say, the OK Black conference is a very tight group of bowlers and coaches and are more than willing to help each other out when needed.

Bacon said he and his teams are hoping to be competitive and bring home hardware this season.

“We are just looking forward to getting back on the lanes and knocking the pins down and maybe along the way bringing home some team and individual hardware again this season.”
