REBECCA GOTTERBARN
Sewanhaka District, Fr.
She's only a freshman, but Gotterbarn has the guile and calm of a senior. The experience of one, too. She's already competed upstate three times as a Section VIII all-star and her team the last two years has pushed Division to the brink in the county tournament. Gotterbarn, who has improved each season, upped her average almost 30 pins and was fourth in Long Island with a 208.9 average.
