Eisenhower claims Big-9 bowling title over Wenatchee


The Eisenhower Cadets will host the Big-9 District Bowling Tournament next week after claiming the regular season title yesterday with a pin-count victory over Wenatchee.

Mackenzie Munro led the Panthers in the first game at Nob Hill Lanes yesterday with a 211 to push Wenatchee to an 855-830 victory. Eisenhower came back in game 2, winning 778 to 706. The 1st Baker also went to the host team with Ike winning it 168 to 158. Wenatchee edged the Cadets in the final Baker 172-to-171 but lost the match 3-2 on the final pin count of 1,947 to 1,891. Just a 57-pin difference.

The win puts Ike at 9-and-2 in Big-9 play with a match to go at Moses Lake Tuesday. Wenatchee’s season is done at 9-and-3. Even if the Cadets lose Tuesday, because they and the Panthers split the season series 1-1, Eisenhower would win the regular season title based on head-to-head pin count by 7-pins.

Also in Big-9 bowling yesterday, Moses Lake topped Davis 3-1.
