Wenatchee bowlers edge Rams to keep title hopes alive

Girls Prep Bowling

Wenatchee will have a chance to win the Big-9 regular season bowling title tomorrow after a narrow, pin-count victory against West Valley yesterday. The Panthers won the first two games behind the bowling of Kylah Hankins. The Big-9 leader rolled a 233 in the first game and 222 in the second.

The Rams came back to win both Bakers 150-to-140 and 138-to-122. So the match came down to a pin-count, with Wenatchee winning by just 116-pins.

That means tomorrow’s match at Eisenhower will be for the regular season title and a chance for Wenatchee to host the District Tournament at Eastmont Lanes.

Eastmont, meanwhile, took care of business on the road at Minda Lanes by downing Davis 3-to-1. The Wildcats host Sunnyside Tuesday while the Cadets finish at Moses Lake. It’s possible that Wenatchee and Eastmont could finish 1-2 in the Big-9.
