Despite a nifty 332 two-game series from Veronica Uribe, the West Valley High School girls bowling team defeated the Sunnyside Lady Grizzlies Thursday afternoon, 3-1.

Yesterday's defeat dropped Sunnyside's record to 1-3 on the season.

The Rams got a pair of 184 and 168 efforts from Angela Brown and Amy Friedt, respectively, in the opening game enroute to scoring a 757-575 victory. In the losing cause, Uribe had the top score for Sunnyside with her 139.

Sunnyside boosted its second game total to a 669, thanks in part to Uribe's 193 and a 143 by Jackie Francis, but West Valley still prevailed, via its 796 total pinfall. The Rams kept all five individual scores between 151 and 168 in the second contest.

The lone point the Lady Grizzlies secured yesterday came in the first of two Baker games, a 134-122 decision. The Baker format calls for each member of the five-girl squad to alternate taking shots throughout the 10 frames. West Valley won the second Baker game 178-134 to secure the match victory.
