Dodger girls defeat Johnston
JOHNSTON — The Fort Dodge girls bowling team rolled their highest score of the season as the Dodgers split with Johnston on Monday.
The FDSH girls won 2,531 to 2,074. The Fort Dodge boys fell, 3,079 to 3,006.
Junior Alexis Kenney turned in the top performance for the Dodger girls, rolling a 408 series. She had games of 214 and 194.
Paige Copenhaver checked in with a 336. Aryssa Lumsden (323), Lexi Hanson (321), Gabby Flores (307) and AJ Feathers (252) were next in line.
“Alexis did what she always does,” said FDSH head coach Nick Vinson. “Gabby and Aryssa gave us huge second games. We are starting to see things come together.
“We wanted to see if we could get over 2,500 on the girls’ side and they were able to do that.”
Defending state champion Kaleb Anderson returned to the line up and bowled a 431 series for the Dodger boys. He had games of 223 and 208. Sophomore Carson Werning just missed the 400 plateau with a 399. Werning rolled games of 189 and 210.
Other Dodger scores were Mitchell Bolton (386), Kyle Davis (382), Brady Graves (374) and Christian Miller (317).
“We went into the last Baker’s down eight,” Vinson said. “They strung a lot of strikes together and beat us 267 to 205 in the final one. I have to give them credit, they did what they had to do.
“I told the guys, obviously we were looking for the win, but to bowl 3,000 on the road is a good day.”
The Dodgers are back in action on Wednesday when they travel to West Des Moines Dowling.
