In two rescheduled matches, the CA boys bowling team went 2-0, including a nailbiter. Sectionals are quickly approaching, and the Striking Vikings are getting hot at the perfect time.
The first match was against Columbus West on February 4 at HP Lanes. This was easy all day for the Vikes, as they dominated the Cowboys 1928 to 929. Building onto his stellar season, Jacob Mowery’23 led the way with 182 and 193, followed by Cole Leis’21 with 167 and 173. Vincent White’21 came next, bowling 154 and 178. After White was Ryan Reagan’22, who had 116 and 142. Seniors Skyler Simpson bowled a cool 164 in the second, and Jake Podgurski had a nice 137 in the first.
The next match was against Bishop Ready on February 5 at HP Lanes. Unlike the West match, this was tight all the way. The Knights put up a valiant fight, as our boys only won 1924 to 1917. Mowery continued his hot streak with 202 and 199, followed by Reagan’s 145 and 176. White had 169 and 149, followed by Leis’ 134 and 159. Finally, Gabe Taub’21 bowled 129 and 139.
Sectionals start on February 13. The striking vikings should be a tough matchup for anyone that faces them.
