Selah girls squeak out victory over Lady Grizzlies


SHS sophomore Sarasa Partida stays low with her delivery in a match against the visiting Selah Vikings yesterday afternoon. Partida shot games of 115-125 to help the Lady Grizzlies earn one and a half points in the four-point match.

Despite a match best 287 two-game series from Sunnyside sophomore Ileana Martinez, the Lady Grizzly bowling team sustained a 2-1/2 to 1-1/2 points loss to the visiting Selah Vikings yesterday afternoon.

Martinez rolled a team best 132 in the opening contest, but it wasn't enough as Selah prevailed 597-529. The Vikings were led in the opener by senior Emily Luke with a 139. Junior Danielle Erickson and sophomore Kim Foster each added a 121 in the first game for the Vikes.

Game two also went Selah's way, a 672-611 decision. Senior Alyssa Beemer shot a team high 142 for the Vikings that game, with Erickson adding a 141. Martinez topped all bowlers in game two, leading Sunnyside with a 155. Unfortunately for the Lady Grizzlies, only one of their four other bowlers scored higher than a 120 in game two.

Selah assured itself the win on Tuesday by tying Sunnyside in the first of two Baker games, 120-120. The Lady Grizzlies won the second Baker game by a 165-160 score. In the Baker match-ups, each member of the five-girl squads alternate taking turns throughout the 10-frame contests.

Sunnyside is scheduled to host another match at Valley Lanes this coming Thursday against visiting Wenatchee.

In JV action yesterday, the Selah girls won 3-1. The Sunnyside junior varsity, which got a team best 220 two-game series from senior Ashley Rojas (86-134), claimed its lone point of the match in the second Baker game, 121-117. The JV Vikings were led by Kylie Baker (130-156).
