Purdy powers Ike past Sunnyside girls

YAKIMA - The Sunnyside High School girls bowling team had no answer for Erin Purdy yesterday at Yakima's Nob Hill Lanes.

Purdy rolled the Eisenhower Cadets past Sunnyside with stellar efforts of 174-247. Purdy's teammate, Kayla Nickles, also excelled against the Lady Grizzlies with games of 195-221.

The one-two punch of Purdy and Nickles spelled a 3-1 defeat for the Sunnyside squad.

The Lady Grizzly keglers averted the sweep by winning the second Baker game, 154-130. Baker bowling calls for each member of the five-girl squad to alternate taking turns throughout the 10 frames.

Ike opened the prep bowling match with a dominating 814-610 win over Sunnyside. Nickles was tops for the Cadets with a 195, with Megan Pharmer and Purdy backing Nickles up with efforts of 178 and 174, respectively. Sunnyside's best effort in game one came from junior Marisela Prado, who rolled a 143. Teammate Sarasa Partida, a sophomore, was close on her heels with a 140.

Game two was even a bigger blowout for the Cadets, as they handed the visiting Sunnyside squad an 892-594 defeat. Purdy and Nickles' performances of 247 and 221 paced Eisenhower. In the losing cause, Sunnyside senior Michele Williams tossed a team best 156.

The host Cadets secured the match victory by winning the first Baker game, 171-122.

In JV action Monday afternoon, Eisenhower posted a 4-0 sweep. The JV Cadets were led by Brittany Tennant's 307 two-game series (160-147). The Sunnyside junior varsity was led by Marissa Martin (126-87), Ashley Rojas (92-117) and Maritsa Rodriguez (126-75).

The SHS bowlers are scheduled to take on Selah at Yakima's Minda Lanes today (Tuesday), and will host West Valley at Sunnyside's Valley Lanes this coming Thursday.
