Dodgers roll season highs

A new year, a pair of new high scores for the Fort Dodge boys and girls bowling teams.

The Dodger boys knocked off Des Moines East, 3,093 to 2,788 and the girls won 2,609 to 2,010.

The boys rolled seven 200 games and three 400 series, which were all season highs.

Kaleb Anderson led the way with a 441 series. He had games of 236 and 205. Kyle Davis was right behind with a 432 with games of 210 and 222. Jared Jacobson also reached the 400-plataeu with games of 194 and 211.

Jayden Ray had a 202 and 170 for a 372 and Brady Graves rolled a 200 and 178 (378). Tayson Preston had a 335 (179, 156).

“The boys rolled really well,” said Fort Dodge head coach Nick Vinson. “We kind of have an idea where districts will be and we know what we’ll have to score.

“So we challenged them to go out and do what they need to and they stepped up. If we continue to bowl like that, we have a great shot at making the state tournament.”

On the girls side, Leah Sanck led the way with a 421 series. She had games of 227 and 194. Jenna Lee had a 396 with games of 202 and 194.

Also competing for the Dodgers was Kat Flores (357), Alexis Kenney (340), Mackenzie Sharpe (295) and Alexis Hanson (176),

“The girls stepped up and had their best showing as well,” Vinson said. “This was our first meet since the break, so I was happy to see them come out and compete.”

Paige Copenhaver led the junior varsity girls with a 268 series and Deanna Evans had a 256.

For the junior varsity boys, Tyler Crimmins rolled a game high 211.

The boys are back in action on Thursday when they host Mason City.
