Bowling: Sequim freshman McKeown places ninth at districts, eanrs state bid

Madison McKeown is headed to state.

The Sequim High freshman picked perfect timing for her best scores of the season, racking up a 479-pin, three-game series at the West Central District bowling tourney in Tacoma on Jan. 26 to place ninth overall.

McKeown moves on to compete at the 1A/2A state tourney at Narrows Plaza Bowl in University Place on Feb. 1.

McKeown posted a strong out of the proverbial gate, tying her season-best with a 157-pin first game before a 186-pin second game of 186. She finished with a 136.

She had the highest score for a freshman at districts by more than 50 pins.

Madison Murphy had the top score among McKeown’s teammates at districts with a 361-pin series (115-121-125), followed by Porter Funston’s 327 (115-90-122) and Trinity Henderson’s 304 (118-106-80).

Selah’s Layne Calfrobe took top district honors with a 574-pin series, 50 pins better than runner-up Madison Bonk of Olympic.
