Weets powers S'side girls to 2-2 tie with Kennewick

Yesterday, the Sunnyside High School girls bowling team avenged, in sorts, a 4-0 loss it suffered to Kennewick earlier in the season.

Tuesday at Sunnyside's Valley Lanes, the Lady Grizzly keglers earned a 2-2 tie against the visiting Lions. It was the first time in 11 matches this season that Sunnyside didn't sustain a loss.

The catalyst in Sunnyside's success was Katie Weets, who rolled a match best, two-game series of 300 on games of 137-163.

Kennewick won the opener, 758-630, thanks to a 171 from Liz Koerner and a 159 from April Holdiman. Weets' 137 was the top score for Sunnyside in the first game.

The second game was a different matter for Sunnyside, however. With Weets leading the way with a 163, the Lady Grizzlies prevailed 649-647. Aiding Sunnyside's cause were Veronica Uribe (138), Veronica Alvarez (122), Kayla Coder (115) and Maribel Rodriguez (111).

Sunnyside forged a 2-1 lead on the Lions when the Lady Grizzlies claimed a 134-130 victory in the first of two Baker games. The Baker game format calls for each member of the five-girl squad to alternate taking turns throughout the 10 frames.

Kennewick pulled out a 2-2 tie against the Lady Grizzlies by winning the second Baker contest, 137-116.

In JV action Tuesday afternoon, Sunnyside averted getting swept by winning the first Baker game, 154-107. In the losing cause, Sunnyside's Veronica Tlatelpa rolled a pair of 130 games.
