KANELAND—Mardi Gras Lanes in DeKalb doesn’t feel like a home base when you lose to the building’s other tenant.

Kaneland suited up against the DeKalb Lady Barbs for a Thursday meeting as part of Northern Illinois Big XII Conference play, only to suffer a handy 3,063-2.539 defeat. It marked the third consecutive head-to-head setback for KHS, which fell to 2-5 on the season.

DeKalb was paced by a high team series of 1,013. For Kaneland, high series went to junior Dominique Lee at 522 and senior counterpart Christie Crews at 503. High games went to Lee’s 210 and Crews’ 193. The high Kaneland team game was a collective 850.

Kaneland bowling will enjoy a little rest and relaxation before hitting the lanes on Tuesday, Jan. 7, at Four Seasons in Sycamore against the Lady Spartans.
