SHS senior Johanna Chumley shot the high game of the day, but it was to no avail as the Lady Grizzlies were swept by the Wenatchee High School girls bowling team this past Thursday at Sunnyside’s Valley Lanes.
Chumley’s high-game performance – a 202 – came in game-two. Sunnyside also received strong efforts in that contest from senior Brianna Esqueda and junior Carla Rodriguez, who rolled games of 154 and 153, respectively. Wenatchee’s superior team depth, however, resulted in the Panthers prevailing by a 773-708 margin.
