Maple Lanes

Maple Lanes experienced a fire last night. This should not greatly impact us at this point, but we will want to lend aid to our Waterloo West and Cedar Falls teams where possible. I will let you know how we will be able to assist when needs are known. If you have a direct impact (loss of equipment), please let me know. Otherwise please cancel any planned trip to the pro shop at this time. We will keep those impacted in the loop as we have details.

Forest City Results

Freshman Kayla Jeppesen stuns in her first ever varsity meet, dropping a whopping 226 and 180 in her debut. Marisa Schneider suffers a broken bowling ball, but manages to save a 389 series as the girls roll to a 2577-2303 victory and remain unbeaten on the year. Complete results here.

The boys had a slow start to the night, struggling to find a shot until the second game. Things turned around the second game and in baker, but it was too late to dig out of the hole they dug as the boys fall 2778-2940. Ethan Hennings had the high game of 222, with Noah Jeppesen and Cole Ross close behind (212 and 201 respectfully). Complete Results here.
