Call Her Butter, ‘Cause She’s on a Roll!

Making the Dexter All-American team is a dream for any high school bowler, and for Katie Fraser, 12, that dream was accomplished. Not only was she the only girl in Indiana to make the team, but was also the only junior on the girl’s team. With many other achievements—such as Semi- State Champion 2018-2019, 2nd Team All- State 2018-2019, Regional Champion 2018-2019,  Regional Champion 2018-2019 and many more—it’s clear to see that she’s had a striking high school bowling career.

At age eight, the interest in bowling first developed due to her father and sister bowling, and after ten years, she’s gained her own insight on both the sport and life experiences, as well as developed her own technique. “This past season, I’ve been working on strengthening my mental game and getting myself to a point where I can compete competitively and confidently,” Fraser began. “I’ve also learned how to work hard to get what I want, to take the good with the bad, and accept it when I don’t do as well as I hoped.” she shares. Her senior year, Fraser earned the title of Top Points Winner 2019-2020, All-Region Team 2019-2020, All-Academic Team 2019-2020, Regional Runner-Up  2019-2020, and ended off with 8th Place in State.

Although her high-school bowling career is now completed, Katie plans to attend Huntington University and pursue a bowling career there while triple majoring in accoutning, finance and business management, in hopes of becoming a Certified Public Accountant. In continuing this career, Fraser hopes to “Win a Tier 1 Tournament and help [her] team win an NAIA championship, as well as the WHAC championships.” No matter what lane she takes in life, it’s a sure bet that bowling will always be in her future.
