Dodgers split again

DES MOINES — The Fort Dodge bowling team came away with a split vs. Des Moines East here Tuesday night.

The Dodger girls posted a 2,426-2,193 victory, while the FDSH boys came up just short, 2,891-2,853.

Leah Sanck cracked the 400-mark with games of 174 and 235, with Alexis Hanson adding a 338 and Alexis Kenney a 305. Aryssa Lumsden fired a 289 series, Kat Flores added a 276 and Paige Copenhaver a 275.

Fort Dodge (12-4 overall) put the dual away with a 232 score in the fourth Baker game.

“The girls just continue to find ways to win,” Dodger head coach Nick Vinson said. “We struggled a little with where we wanted to throw the ball, but we keep winning duals and that is what is important right now. If you know how to win, it is helpful in the postseason.”

Kaleb Anderson paced the FDSH boys, as he had games of 256 and 214 for a 470 series. Kyle Davis checked in at 395, Brady Graves at 388, Mitchell Bolton at 371, Jayden Ray at 355 and Carson Werning at 307.

“We’ve just got to be more competitive with the boys,” Vinson said. “We went into Bakers ahead, but we just kind of fell apart. I’m not sure what the answer to our struggles are at the moment.”

Next action for the Dodgers is a week from Thursday when they face Ankeny.

In the junior varsity dual, Fort Dodge won both, as the boys came out on top 2,639-2,290. David Folsom rolled a 420 series and Tre Preston a 399.

Ashleigh Starnes led the Dodger girls with a 278 as they won, 1,993-589.
