With only a nine pin difference, Varsity Boys Bowling placed second, along with Varsity girls and Junior Varsity boys, at their first meet of the season. The meet took place at Ridge Lanes in Topeka.

The quad included teams from Seaman (2383), MHS (2374), Topeka West (2320) and Hayden (2036), who scored last.

With a 714 series, seniors Alex Newell and Michael Moran were the top bowlers for MHS, with 675 series from Moran.

“Alex threw the ball with more confidence today than I have ever seen of her,” coach Robert Reagan said. “Alex only had one open frame today displaying remarkable spare shooting and consistency.”

Although this is the first meet of the season, this isn’t some of the bowlers first meet being on the team.

“The first year bowlers performed well for their first tournament,” Moran said. “Usually nerves and performance anxiety will get to your head, but they never broke under pressure and while they may not think so, well I believe they did a great job in doing what they had been practicing.”

Even though MHS did not come out in first place, there is still a long season ahead of them.

“Our team has the potential to go to State, and we want to go to State,” Moran said. “We’re going to try our hardest and try even harder to bring home a State championship trophy for Manhattan.”
