The Squalicum girls’ bowling team claimed a 2-1 victory over its sister program from Sehome on Tuesday, Nov. 2, at 20th Century Bowl. The Storm sandwiched 464-451 and 579-557 victories in the first and third games around a 564-550 win by the Mariners in the second to claim its first victory of the season.
“I thought they did great,” said Erin Furda, who coaches both programs. “It was interesting because they are sister teams. They practice together each day, and yesterday (Tuesday) they competed against each other. For me watching, I was coaching both teams, so every ball it was like ‘Yeah! Oh.’ It’s really great to see how the girls interact and support each other.”
Shaye Fowler bowled a personal best 218 in the third game to help Squalicum (1-1) to the victory.
“That’s really exceptional for any high school bowler,” Furda said.
Mallory Kruzich was the top bowler for Sehome (0-2) with her 163 in the third game, and showed good consistency, Furda said.
The Mariners returned to action on Wednesday, Dec. 3, when it hosted Anacortes, while the Storm will wait until Wednesday, Dec. 10, to host the Seahawks at 20th Century Bowl.
