MOSES LAKE – With four of its five bowlers topping the two-game 300 series plateau, the Moses Lake Chiefs toppled the Sunnyside High School girls bowling team this past Tuesday, 3-1.
It was the first head-to-head match-up of the 2013-14 season for both prep teams.
The lone Sunnyside bowler to post a two-game series above 300 was senior Johanna Chumley. She rolled games of 161-157 in the losing cause.
Moses Lake’s top kegler on Tuesday proved to be Ashleigh Hash. Bowling in the lead-off spot, she tossed games of 181-161 for a two-game series of 342. Four pins behind her with a 338 series was teammate Kim Muldner (185-153).
