WICHITA— It wasn’t much of a contest from the start ad the McPherson High bowling teams buried Andale in all four varsity and junior varsity matches at West Acres Bowl Tuesday.
In the varsity boy’s matchup, the Bullpups out bowled Andale 2,492-2,168 while taking four of the top five spots individually. Taylor Miller took first by bowling a 672 and Tytin Goebel and Matt Stiggins finished second and third. Dylan Krehbiel almost made it a clean sweep of the top four but fell short and placed fifth.
For the Bullpup boy’s junior varsity, it was all Blake Snyder as he rolled an impressive 596 to take first, finishing a solid 75 pins ahead of second-place and Bullpup teammate, Wyatt Eisenbarth.
For the Lady Bullpup bowlers, it was an even more impressive stomping as they rolled up a 1,922 score to Andale’s 1,231 and took each of the top six places, including a first-place finish for Heidi Allen who bowled a 522. Haylee Busch, Birkley Schwartz and Brooke Miller rounded out the top four. Katie Dix also took first for the Lady Bullpups in the junior varsity match.
“We had a decent meet and performed the best as a team so far this year,” noted Bullpup Head Coach Herb Halinski. “We still have a lot of improvement to make. We have a lot of meets the next two weeks and hopefully we can improve each time out. There were a lot of good games bowled by team members today.”
Coach Halinski concluded his coach reflections by saying, “Heidi Allen had her first ever 200 game while Wyatt Eisenbarth got off to a really good start the first two games. Taylor Miller and Blake Snyder also each had solid games. Matt Stiggins was very consistent all meet long and the Busch twins (Haylee and Kylee) are improving every time out.”
The busy part Coach Halinski talked about begins this week as the Bullpup bowlers will be back in action on Thursday at El Dorado and then finish the week with a home meet on Friday at Starlite Lanes against Buhler.
