East Islip has had a revolving door of talented bowlers, but none have been more consistent than Olivia Lopera.

Lopera, who will compete for Adelphi next season, was second in the county with a 217.06 average and helped lead her undefeated team to No. 2 in the state championship with a 1,168 series. East Islip went 10-0 during the regular season.

After setting the Long Island record for average last year at 228.30, Lopera said this season was about mentoring others.

"The team definitely influenced me with their attitude and motivation," Lopera said. "I'm very happy with the way I bowled this season. It wasn't my absolute best, but I was second in the county. I'm perfectly fine with that."
