Cougars sweep the Trojans

IC West’s combined bowling teams fall to CR Kennedy in season opener

IOWA CITY– Iowa City West High’s combined (with bowlers from Liberty High and Clear Creek Amana (CCA)) girls and boys bowling teams opened the 2020-2021 season Friday, Dec. 18, at home against Cedar Rapids Kennedy.
The Cougars swept the Trojans, with the varsity boys falling 2,938 to 2,505, the junior varsity (JV) boys falling 2,593 to 2,084, and the varsity girls falling 2,341 to 2,044. Kennedy did not bring a JV girls squad, which led to something of an inter-squad scrimmage.
West’s Neena Turnblom led the varsity girls with 335, Stirlen Roberson (CCA) led the varsity Trojans with 383, and Kolby Ripperton had the top score for West’s JV boys with 330. Madeline Otis won the JV girls match with 247 while West’s James Dickens led the winning girls’ JV squad with 243.
Kennedy’s Ariana Chesmore won the varsity girls match with 344, Jaxon Robinson won the varsity boys match with 489 and Alex Hume won the JV boys match with 457.
Following the Christmas break, the Trojans will return to the lanes on Thursday, Jan. 7, to take on the Little Hawks of City High at Colonial Lanes. On Friday, Jan. 8, West visits Waterloo West at Cadillac Lanes in Waterloo before hosting Linn-Mar on Monday, Jan. 11.
