Bowling was a sport that Jessica Rowe really didn't want to try at first.
After some convincing from her best friend Skyler Runnels, Rowe decided to join the Starkville High School bowling team.
The situation has been a positive one for Rowe and the Yellowjackets as she has developed into one of the most consistent bowlers.
Rowe's development gives SHS bowling coach Jim Philamlee another option going into Friday's state tournament.
Philamlee has watched Rowe improved her average about 40 points to the mid 100's through hard work.
