Bulldogs bowl over East

DES MOINES — Just hours before making the trip to Premiere Bowling in Des Moines on Thursday, the Ottumwa bowling teams discovered they will be making a second trip the same location later this winter.

On the same day the Bulldogs found out they’ll be playing at Premiere next month in the Class 2A Substate meet, with a trip to the State Bowling Tournament on the line, the OHS boys and girls got acquainted with the lanes in a positive way. The Bulldog girls and boys both earned CIML Metro Conference wins over Des Moines East as the Ottumwa girls won 2,927-2,184 while the OHS boys edged the Scarlets 3,004-2.805.

Bailey Palmer led the Ottumwa girls, producing the highest average of any Bulldog varsity bowler on the day at 219 in the opening two games. For OHS girls head coach Doug Techel, it was the next rotation that stood out as the biggest positive for the Bulldogs.

“We had really good baker games,” Techel said. “I’m really pleased with that. Hopefully we can take this experience and bowl this well again (at Premiere Bowling) in a few weeks.”

The Ottumwa boys were led once again by Joey Lee, who was coming off a 300 game in the Bulldogs last meet last Thursday at Champion Bowl. Lee was limited to a 218 average on Thursday on much tougher lanes at Premiere Bowling.

“We didn’t bowl very good. There were way to many open (frames) for us,” Ottumwa boys bowling head coach Brett Salter said. “I think the conditions were just a lot different up here. We used it as a little test session. We have a few problems we need to address. At least we have some time to work on them.”

Perhaps the biggest positive on the day came from the competitiveness of the Ottumwa junior varsity squads. The Bulldog girls beat East 2,346-1,428 led by Ashley Schooley’s 162 average while the Ottumwa boys JV won 2,827-2,291 thanks to Seth Meiders’ meet-high 247 average.
