The Fort Dodge boys and girls bowling teams remained perfect in 2019, earning wins over Mason City.

The boys won 2,895 to 2,723, while girls picked up a 2,534 to 2,209 victory.

Kaleb Anderson paced the Dodger boys with a 459 series. He had games of 234 and 225. Jared Jacobson was right behind with a 425. Jacobson had games of 257 and 168.

Also competing for the Dodgers were Kyle Davis (358), Dean Meriweather (339), Tayzon Preston (313) and Jayden Ray (302).

“Kaleb and Jared bowled really well,” said Fort Dodge head coach Nick Vinson. “We are capable of doing better. Brady (Graves) was sick, so I had to let Dean Meriweather know this morning he was going to compete in the varsity lineup and he stepped up.

“We did what we had to do in bakers (round), and that’s what helped us.”

Leah Sanck and Alexis Kenney paced the Dodgers. Sanck had a 429 with a 206 and 223. Kenney rolled a 424 and Kenney had a 223 and 201.

For the Dodgers, Kat Flores (326), Mackenzie Sharpe (288), Alexis Hanson (242) and Jenna Lee (239) also competed.

“Leah (Sanck) did what Leah does,” Vinson said. “She is very consistent and does the same thing over and over again.

“Alexis (Kenney) is a freshman and she is starting to scratch the surface of her potential.”

The junior varsity boys won 2,626 to 2,268. Jacob Schroeder rolled a 398 and Christian Miller had a 367.

On the girls side, the junior varsity won 1,700 to 1,670. Denna Evans had a 277 series and Samantha Brennan had a 254 series.

The Dodgers are back in action on Thursday when they host Ankeny.
