Eisenhower rolls past Lady Grizzly keglers

YAKIMA - Ouch! The Sunnyside High School girls bowling team took one on the chin yesterday.

Eisenhower, with four of its five bowlers averaging no lower than a 167, swept the Lady Grizzly keglers, 4-0.

The Cadets powered their way to a pair of 877-697 and 837-604 victories in the opening two games. In the final two games-a Baker format where each member of the five-girl squad alternates taking turns throughout the 10 frames-Ike prevailed 158-110 and 183-124.

Thursday's 4-0 loss lowered Sunnyside's mark in the points standings to 3-21. The Lady Grizzlies' heads-up record this season is 0-6.

The five Sunnyside girls who competed Thursday at Yakima's Nob Hill Lanes all scored within 28 pins of one another. Senior Katie Weets' two-game total of 273 (148-125) led the way for the Lady Grizzlies. Seniors Tiara Moon and Jennifer Tobin were close behind with series of 266 and 262, respectively. Rounding out the two-game series individual scoring for Sunnyside were senior Maribel Rodriguez with a 255 and junior Veronica Uribe with a 245.

Ike received a stellar effort from lead-off bowler Keisha Walsh, who opened with a 202 and added a nifty 191 to her two-game total. The Cadets also got a pair of strong performances from Kayla Nickles (189-158) and Jennifer Mosebar (182-164).

In JV action Thursday, Eisenhower also swept to a 4-0 victory. In the losing cause, Sunnyside's Vanessa Roman turned in the top effort with games of 93-168.

Sunnyside earned a 115-115 tie with Ike in the last Baker game to avert a sweep in 'C' squad action. The top performance for Sunnyside was turned in by Janet Chavez, who had games of 137-105.

The Lady Grizzly bowling team is scheduled to host West Valley at Sunnyside's Valley Lanes next Tuesday. Match time is set for 3:30 p.m.
