On January 13, the girls bowling team took over a two hundred point lead over Newton. Maize defeated Newton and Andover in the Newton Bowling Triangular match. The final score was 1899, while Newton’s was 1698.
The boys however weren’t so fortunate. The final score was 2011, only 86 points behind first place team Newton. Senior Brenton Maudlin has high hopes for the next match against Salina South.
“We panicked a bit when bowling against Newton, which messed us up. Last time we played against Salina, we beat the 5A champions. If we can improve on spare-shooting, I think we’ll be okay,” Maudlin said.
The bowling team will be back in action Tuesday at Salina.
