Tiara Moon rolled a team high two-game 290 series yesterday-including a team best single game 171-but it wasn't enough to counter the efforts of Selah's Emma Beemer and Whitney Jennerjohn.
Moon and her Sunnyside High School teammates dropped a 3-1 decision to the visiting Viking bowlers Tuesday afternoon. Yesterday's match was staged at Sunnyside's Valley Lanes.
The loss lowered Sunnyside's record to 0-5 on the season, 3-17 in the points standings.
Beemer stole the spotlight Tuesday, capping off her match high two-game 352 series with a 210. She opened with a 142. Jennerjohn also sparkled for Selah, rolling games of 164-159 for a 323 two-game series. Viking teammate Taylor Greenwood added efforts of 127-171.
Moon, a senior, opened the match with a 171 before settling for a 119 in game two.
Selah won the opening game, a low scoring, competitive affair, by just 54 pins-653-599. The Vikings stretched their margin of victory to a whopping 239 pins in game two, winning 817-578.
Sunnyside averted the sweep by claiming victory in the first of the two Baker games, rolling to a 117-99 win. The Baker format calls for each member of the five-girl squad to alternate taking shots throughout the 10 frames. In the second Baker contest, Selah prevailed 137-105.
Moon's 290 two-game series was tops for Sunnyside, although senior Maribel Rodriguez turned in a consistent effort with a team second best 245 (121-124). Rounding out the scoring for Sunnyside were senior Katie Weets (123-113), junior Veronica Uribe (99-136) and senior Jennifer Tobin (85-86).
In junior varsity action yesterday, Veronica Alvarez had the top two-game series for Sunnyside (114-117). Selah's JV won the match, 3-1. Alvarez's teammate, Kayla Coder, was second high for the Lady Grizzlies with games of 103-118. Selah was paced to the win by Heidi Peterson, who rolled games of 129-123.
The Vikings also won the 'C' squad match by a 3-1 score. Sunnyside's top bowlers were Janet Chavez (139-87) and Ashley Anderson (126-77).
The Sunnyside girls bowling team is out of action until Thursday, Dec. 1, when they are scheduled to travel to Yakima's Nob Hill Lanes to take on the Eisenhower Cadets.
