Girls Bowling: Bearcats Extend Win Streak to 18


The Bearcat Girl’s bowling team continued their winning ways, defeating Aberdeen at Westside lanes in Olympia, three games to zero, and winning the total pins match 2023-1322.

The defending 2A state champions have now won 54 straight league games and 18 matches dating back to the beginning of the 2019-20 season.

“Yes, we are continuing to win but we aren’t satisfied with our bowling,” W.F. West Assistant Coach Rich Bunker said. “The girls are working very hard but we are currently in a bit of a slump as a team, but maybe that is a good thing. It’s great we are winning but every one of the  girls are a little frustrated because they know we are better than our scores indicate. As coaches, we are very proud of how hard the girls are working, given all the adversity this COVID season has brought us, including no longer having home lanes to practice on.”

Sophomore star Piper Chalmers came through to lead the Bearcats, averaging 199.6 with a 599 series, while senior two-hander Brianna Powe chipped in a 201 while averaging 179.33.

Next up for the Bearcats is league rival Black Hills at 3 p.m., Thursday, at Westside Lanes in Olympia.
