As the conference season heats up, the urgency also rises for Kaneland bowling to make some strides.
Kaneland earned its second win against Geneva this season, but dropped a matchup to DeKalb, as well. KHS is now 3-9, with a 2-6 record in Western Sun Conference action.
Kaneland picked up its third win of the season as the Lady Knights came away with a 2,600-2,242 win in varsity play on Thursday.
Senior Jessica Stebbins bowled a 476 series while teammate Cassie Wilson bowled a 461 series to supplant the effort. High games were bowled by Holly Thomas with a 192 and Wilson with a 180.
In JV action, Kaneland defeated Geneva at AMF Valley Lanes in North Aurora 1,993-1768. Top series was held by both Tierra Lee and Amy Kuryliw at 364, while Lee had a team-high 172 game.
The Lady Knight bowlers lost to DeKalb in a home meet on Tuesday by a final of 3,074-2,653.
Kathleen Moravcik had a 481 series, followed by Stebbinsâ€™ 473.
High game was had by Moravcik at 199.
â€œThatâ€™s nice to see,â€ KHS coach Jim McKnight said. â€œSheâ€™s usually pushing the top scores, so it was nice to see her get one.â€
DeKalb was buoyed by sophomore Brandi Underwoodâ€™s 619 series.
â€œWe bowled decent, but DeKalb is a good team and you need your best game against them,â€ McKnight said.
The JV crew lost 2,238-1,995.
The Lady Knight were set to take on visiting Fenton on Wednesday.
