Kaneland—Kaneland bowling had a rougher start than they would have liked, but it no longer has to wonder where its first win will come from.
A Nov. 28 dual hosted by Lisle resulted in the first win of the 2012-13 campaign for KHS, while a loss followed in Dixon against the host Duchesses on Thursday.
Kaneland’s head-to-head mark sits at 1-4.
KHS defeated the Interstate Eight Conference staple Lady Lions by a final of 2,731-2,363 in varsity action.
Kaneland was led by Morgan Wojciechowski and her 515 series. She was followed closely by Amanda Strayve’s 492 and Dominique Lee’s 488 efforts.
High games went to Wojciechowski at 236 and Lee at 219.
For Lisle, Shelby Jensen had the high series at 481.
In JV action, KHS took home a 1,976-1,796 win.
“It was a great win for us at Lisle. It was a very busy week, with competition Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, so it was great to see the girls bowl well at Lisle. Morgan Wojciechowski’s 236 and Dominique Lee’s 219 really lifted the team,” KHS coach Jim McKnight said.
Against Northern Illinois Big XII crossover foe Dixon, KHS ended up on the wrong side of a 3,086-2,637 loss.
Wojciechowski’s 520 series and a 513 series from Christie Crews were tops for the Kaneland lineup, and high games went to Wojciechowski at 205 and Crews and 176.
“It’s no wonder they’re right up there near the top of the conference. It was our fourth contest in as many nights, and the girls were showing their tiredness. We actually bowled pretty well, all things considered, but Dixon simply bowled better,” McKnight said.
The Lady Knights host Illinois Math and Science Academy on Monday, Dec. 10, at 4 p.m.
