Ten pins can seem like a lot when you’re staring 60 feet away down a bowling lane, but in high school play where teams score 600 and 700 pins, it isn’t much.
For Sequim’s bowling squad, it was all they needed — and didn’t get — in a loss to North Mason Jan. 10.
The host Wolves won both Baker games but lost both of the regular-format games and eventually fell 5-2 in the state’s new scoring system.
Sequim lost the second game just 678-669. A win there would have given the Wolves (1-10) their second win in as many tries and their first winning streak of the season.
Samantha Whiteside led the charge for the Wolves with a team-high 264 pins, including a stellar 167 in the second game, tops among all bowlers for both games.
Johanna Ewing continued to impress with a solid 263-pin performance, collecting 155 pins in the second game, while Dung Quach (257 pins) and Roselli Marsall (240) were other top Sequim bowlers.
The Wolves were slated to take on Bremerton away Jan. 15 — results were unavailable at press time. Sequim travels to Silverdale for a Jan. 17 match-up with league powerhouse Olympic.
In the pool, Sequim’s swimming and diving crew was no match for the Peninsula Seahawks in Gig Harbor Jan 10.
Peninsula raced to a 144-42 victory.
Sequim’s 200 medley team (James Cockburn, Parker Steichen, Steffen Estep and Thomas Moores), however, did qualify for the West Central District meet with a 2:21.02 time (meters) while Estep qualified for districts in the 200 individual medley with a time of 2:59.22 (meters).
These are Sequim’s first qualifying times this season.
Thanks to computer error, more results from the meet were unavailable at press time.
A Jan. 8 meet with Olympic was postponed because of inclement weather.
The Wolves (1-3) travel to Bremerton to take on the Knights Jan. 17. Sequim hosts Port Angeles Jan. 22.
