The Scarab Nation Spotlight Athlete is Katelyn Pinkston. Katelyn is a senior and captain on the bowling team. When asked about Katelyn, head coach Andrew Atwood said, “With a bowling season that matches the challenges that we have faced for the entirety of 2020, it is a comfort to have Katelyn on the team. Not only does she continue to be a crucial team member, she has also settled into the team captain role quite well. She is my “go to” if I need something done and is always ready to assist in helping some of our newer team members develop their skills.” We sat down with Katelyn recently to find out what makes her such a valued team member.
