Bowlers win at Denver

The W-SR girls shot 2606 on Friday night, topping the Denver girls by over 700 pins, and also putting up the 4th highest score in team history. The girls production came through a balance attacked that had all girls averaging over 150 on the night and a baker series of over 900 pins, something that has only happened 3 times in team history

The boys were also successful on Friday. Ethan Hennings led the boys with a 237 game and a 424 series. Starting off bakers with a 244 game sealed the victory for the Go-Hawks.

Bowlers will be back in action on Tuesday as they head to Grundy Center for the first time ever. Early start time… 3:15.


Teams split at Vinton

The girls were victorious at Vinton on Tuesday 2415-2132 to remain unbeaten at 3-0. Senior Marisa Schneider led the way 199,178/377. The girls put the match away by starting with a 210 game in bakers.

The boys suffered their first loss, falling 2735-3029 to what appears to be a state ready Vinton-Shellsburg team. Lane Shears was back in action Tuesday and led the way 199,223/422. The boys tightened the match after winning the first 2 baker games, but gave up ground in the final 3.

The Go-Hawks are back in Action Friday against Denver at Panther lanes in Tripoli.


Go-Hawks win again

Both Boys and Girls teams were successful at Columbus on Friday, improving to 2-0 on the year.  

The varsity boys had 3 new faces on varsity this week, showing some of the deep bench we have.  Cole Ross (154,153/307), Gabe Holden (136,163/299), and Seth Benschoter (147,173/320) all got their first start on Varsity, but it was senior Noah Jeppesen leading the way again (216,205/421) as the Go-Hawks win 2581 to 2404.

The varsity girls won 2280 – 1948 with the top series coming from Brynne Steckelberg(167,142/309) and high game from Jentry Eick (119,183/302).  Demonstrating how deep the bench goes on the girls side was Rachel Jebe(160,153/313) with big numbers off the JV team.

We will see all bowlers on Monday.
