KNOXVILLE — Pella Christian finally fielded a full girls’ bowling team for competition Saturday in a triangular meet hosted by Knoxville.
“There have been so many conflicts this season. It’s nice to have that behind us,” PC bowling coach Rod Blunck said. “It looks like we can be pretty competitive if we can manage to get everyone there.”
Pella Christian’s girls finished third with a 1,828 score. Knoxville won with 2,413 followed by Norwalk at 2,253.
Anna Burg led the way for PC with a 253 two-game score, followed closely by Alexis Wright at 250 and Chanae VanWyk with a 249. Blunck said all six girls were very close this week with only 30 pins separating the high and low for the team.
The Eagle boys were paced by Jordan Pleima’s 325. Max Shannon threw a 321 and Caleb VanZee had a 301. Pella Christian was third at 2,307 with Knoxville winning with a 2,845 pin count. Norwalk finished with 2,596.
“The boys showed good improvement in the total score for this week. Individually, the boys didn’t have as high a score as some have had in the past, collectively they were very consistent. There was only 46 pins separating high and low this week,” Blunck said.
Pella Christian goes to Oskaloosa this Saturday.
