FOREST CITY | The Forest City High School boys and girls varsity bowling teams saw success against North Iowa.
On Friday, Jan. 11, the Forest City High School boys varsity bowling team had their hands full against North Iowa with a close 923-870 win in the first game. The lead was a small 53 pins.
Levi Wood was the only Forest City bowler over 200 the first game with a 235. The second game, Forest City rolled out a monstrous 1,021 score verses 703 for North Iowa. That would make the lead a very comfortable 371 pins going into the baker games.
They didn’t slow down at all the first two baker games rolling scores of 211 and 237. It appeared they were well on their way to reaching 3000 for the day. Game 3 they bowled a 127. Game 5 they bowled a 140.
It was a big falloff, but they still won overall 2,852-2,503. It was a good day overall, except missing that elusive 3,000 mark. It was 60 pins higher than they bowled last year against North Iowa and almost 600 higher than their last meet in Waverly.
Eli Johnson led the Forest City Boys with a two game series of 423 which included a 242 game he started with the first 7 strikes. “We thought we might see a replay of the 300 he threw in practice last month,” Shawn Torgerson, head coach.
Conner Thompson was the next closest with a two game series of 397.
The boys get back to .500 with a 3-3 record heading into another home meet against Decorah on Jan 18.
The Forest City High School Girls bowling team added another win to their season with a 2400-1617 score over a very shorthanded North Iowa team.
Jazmin Trunkhill led the girls with a two game score of 337. Three other Forest City girls were also over the 300 mark. Mandy Anzivino had a 323, Jaily Rodriguez had a 310 and Haley Wood had a 302.
It was a good balanced team effort that saw them reach their highest pin total of the year with 2400.
They are now 5-1 heading into a home meet against Decorah who they beat last year.
