Lions roar past Sunnyside girls

KENNEWICK - With four of five girls topping the 300 two-game series plateau, the Kennewick Lions swept past the Sunnyside High School girls bowling team, 4-0, yesterday afternoon at Kennewick's Celebrity Bowl.

Heidi Ruff turned in the top effort for the Lions, throwing games of 187-186 for a 373 two-game series.

Kennewick won the opener by a 795-588 count, and took the second game 789-613. In the two Baker contests, the Lions prevailed 138-124 and 156-129.

Sunnyside's top performer Tuesday was freshman Veronica Uribe, making her first start on the varsity. Uribe rolled a 145 in the opening game, following that up with a solid 141.

Desiree Pritchett, a junior, had the second highest two-game series for the Lady Grizzlies, tossing games of 133-123. Also competing for Sunnyside were senior Cassie Coder (126-107), senior Amber Gonzalez (100-129) and sophomore Katie Weets (84-113).

In JV action yesterday, Kennewick claimed a 3-1 win over Sunnyside. The JV Lady Grizzlies scored their lone point in the second Baker game, winning 135-114. The Baker format calls for each member of the five-girl squad to alternate taking shots throughout the 10 frames.

Sunnyside's top JV bowlers included Rose Garza (117-136), Jennifer Tobin (108-132) and Maribel Rodriguez (115-117).

The SHS bowling team was scheduled to take on Davis High School today (Wednesday) at Minda Lanes in Yakima, a make-up competition from an earlier date that had to be postponed because of inclement weather.
