FOREST CITY | The Forest City High School Bowling teams traveled to Waterloo at Maple Lanes on Wednesday, Feb. 13, to compete for a chance to bowl in the state finals.
The boys started off with a 993 first game and within 20 pins of the lead. Leading the team the first game were Levi Wood (226), Conner Thompson (221) and Jorden Trunkhill (201).
The second game did not go as well when they rolled an 897. Top scores for that game were Eli Johnson with a 233, Colby Droessler with a 213 and Tanner Frascht with a 186.
Going into bakers, the team was in third place, 132 pins down from Charles City. The first two baker games were a 189 and a 191. The guys slowed down with a final three games of 162, 147, and 168.
They finished with a team total of 2747 to finish fourth out of 7 teams, 200 pins out of first place.
The girls also faced some tough competition.
The girls’ scores were evenly spread and consistent with the two-game series within 30 pins of each other. The first two team scores were 736 and 745 for a two-game series of 1481, which was fourth place and trailing the leading Charles City team by over 300 pins.
Their first two baker games were 157 and 181. Like the boys, they dropped off with a final three games of 125, 136, and 140. They finished with a total of 2218. That score was only 10 pins lower than their state-qualifying score from last year, but this was a stronger field.
Charles City also won the girls event with a final score over 2500.
Haley Wood led the girls with a 303 series, followed by Chiara Thompson with a 302 series, Mandy Anzivino with a 297 series, Jazmin Trunkhill with a 290 series, Jailyn Rodriguez with a 289 series, and Greta Oulman with a 276 series.
