Despite Cancer Battle, HVCC Bowling Coach Bell Keeps Bowling in ‘In The Pocket

For Catie Bell, the ⁣head coach of Hudson Valley Community College’s bowling team, the sport serves as a welcome‍ distraction ⁣from the trials she faces off the lanes, including a ​recent significant health issue.

At 29⁣ years old, this Averill ⁤Park native finds solace in the Towne Mixed Doubles league, where she competes every‌ Wednesday night at the ‌Towne Bowling Academy. This is​ a ⁣highlight ⁢of her ‌week, ⁢which is otherwise filled with her responsibilities ​as a mother to two young daughters, Natalia and Aurora, aged 5 and 4 respectively, and her work at her parents’ business,​ T.J. ‌Bell Environmental. She also coaches the HVCC program.

In addition⁢ to her roles as ‍a mother, businesswoman, and ⁤coach, Bell also serves‌ as the ⁣treasurer for the West Sand Lake​ Fire Department auxiliary, providing⁣ food⁤ and supplies to firefighters during major fires. Currently, she is battling cancer.

“I was⁣ diagnosed with ovarian cancer in July,” Bell shared.⁢ “I ⁤discovered late ⁣that I was bleeding internally. ⁣They told me in October‌ that I was in remission, but I had to undergo some tests⁤ again⁢ in January. I’m currently undergoing chemotherapy. Not ‍many people know that⁣ I’m sick again. I would say that being able to bowl, regardless of the score, is a significant achievement for ⁣me.​ Anything over 750 for a four-game series is a good night for me right now.”

For Bell, bowling with friends serves as a‍ comforting balm.

“It provides me with an outlet. I ‍love the league on Wednesday nights,”‍ she said. “Everyone cares about me, and it helps me to get out of the house. ‌Without bowling, I probably wouldn’t⁤ leave the house ‌much at all.”

In the Towne ‍Mixed Doubles league, Bell⁤ maintains an average in the 190s. She has rolled​ a pair​ of perfect‌ games as⁤ a junior in the ⁣Joey⁣ Schmidt Capital District Junior Pro⁣ Scoring League, but her⁢ recent scores as an ⁣adult bowler have not been ‌as high.

“I hope​ to get another 300 game soon,” she said. “Right now, my personal bowling achievements are secondary to my health, my children, and my coaching.”

Bell, who primarily uses Storm and Roto Grip equipment, estimates her high triple is around a 720. However, since she competes in ‍a four-game classic league, she rarely keeps track of her stats over her first three games anymore. Her highest average was‍ a 199 last season.

Bell started learning the ​game a bit later than most.

“I⁤ didn’t start bowling until I was in ⁢the ‌fourth grade,” she said. “I began bowling‍ at [the now-defunct] Hi-Way Recreation. Artie [Hoffman] started helping me after I‍ developed a high interest. He got me⁤ started, and then I just continued. Then I took some classes from Bob Daubney. Later, ⁣Tom ‍Earl helped me. Many‌ people have contributed to my ⁣bowling career. I even went⁢ to Brian LeClair for some ⁤help.

“I would describe​ my game as rather simplistic. I’m essentially a down-and-in type player. I⁢ prefer to keep everything simple.”

Bell studied business management and paralegal at Robert Morris University in Springfield, Illinois. She continued studying pre-law at Russell Sage College.

“I was interested in law and ‌wanted to go to law school, but⁢ then ⁢I ⁤had a ⁤couple⁣ of kids,” she explained.

Afterwards, Bell worked⁤ for several years at both Del Lanes and East Greenbush Bowling Center but had to leave her bowling center ⁤jobs when⁣ she⁣ was ‍asked to help coach the HVCC bowling program.

“In 2017, ⁤I received a call from Joe Prest. He told me they had an assistant coaching position​ open at HVCC and asked if I would be interested,” Bell recalled. “At‍ the time, I was ⁢working at ⁤Del Lanes and‍ East Greenbush Bowling Center, and‌ I was a bit hesitant. After all, I was about the same age as the⁢ players ​I would be ​coaching. I wondered if ​they would listen to me. But I have a lot of respect for Joe, and I ‌eventually said yes.”

After several years with the program,⁣ Bell was ​promoted to head‌ coach.

“Now, I’m the head coach, and I love it,” said Bell, whose Vikings​ won their‍ second consecutive Mountain Valley Conference title earlier this ​week. “I love being able to pass on my knowledge about league bowling and sport bowling to the younger student-athletes who might not have that experience. ⁤I’m very proud of my team. It’s been an incredible year for ​them.”
