V-S Bowlers take on Waterloo Columbus

By Amber Pattee · February 11th, 2019
On Friday we competed against Waterloo Columbus and all teams were victorious. The girl's high score for the Girls with Christina Harrelson with a 370 series and for the Boys Varsity was Cyrus Elwick with a 457 series and a 279 game. Freshman Riley Richart bowled on the JV team and scored a very nice 464 series with a 247 game.
