EAST WENATCHEE - Tiffany Stephens may well likely be the top prep girls bowler this side of the Cascade Mountains. She showcased her skills yesterday in leading the Wenatchee High School girls bowling team to a 4-0 sweep of the Sunnyside Lady Grizzlies.
Stephens rolled games of 234 and 213, powering the Panthers to the dominating win.
Wenatchee won the opener handily, 863-520. The Panthers were just as dominating in game two, winning by an 868-576 count. In the two Baker games, where each member of the five-girl squad alternates taking turns throughout the 10 frames, Wenatchee prevailed 173-109 and 157-95.
Sunnyside's top bowler yesterday was Katie Weets. She opened with a less than impressive 92, but turned in the top Lady Grizzly effort of the day in the second contest, tossing a 157.
Kayla Coder had the second highest two-game series for Sunnyside on scores of 134-97. Also in the losing cause, Megan Saunders shot 113-114, Veronica Tlatelpa rolled games of 87-110 and Maribel Rodriguez posted scores of 94-98.
Stephens wasn't the only Wenatchee bowler who impressed on-lookers yesterday. Besides her 447 two-game series, the Panthers received a pair of 347 series from Sarah Hewitt (158-189) and Kelsey Faulkner (176-171).
In looking ahead, Sunnyside is scheduled to take on Omak at Lake Bowl in Moses Lake this coming Thursday.
