South’s bowling team competed in a varsity triangular meet at the West Acres Bowling Alley on Jan. 9. They placed second out of three teams. The teams that competed were Buhler, Bishop Carroll and South. South got first place in its division.

“I feel like our competition wasn’t hard at all because the other teams weren’t very good.” Cody Houle, 9, said. Houle shot a 432 series.

This meet was a morale booster for the teams because of the way they preformed, improving overall as a team from their last meet. 

“The highlight of the meet for me was when I shot a 149,” Faith Lawson, 9, said. “That is my highest score.”
The varsity girls scored a total of 2,224 pins and the junior varsity girls shot 1,292 pins. The boy’s varsity team scored 2,436 pins, while junior varsity got 1,805 pins.  

“I feel to improve my score I could practice a lot more and not goof off in practice as much,” Lawson, said

The bowling team’s next meet is Jan. 19, at Wichita-Northwest.
