Bowling: Sequim picks up first win of 2019-20 season

Despite missing a pair of varsity players, Sequim High’s bowling squad picked up its first win of the season at home against North Mason on Dec. 10.

Madison McKeown bowled a 172-pin first game and Trinity Henderson bowled back-to-back games of 132 leading Sequim (1-6) to a 5-2 win over the visiting Bulldogs at Laurel Lanes in Port Angeles.

While North Mason took the first regular game 605-552, the Wolves, backed by strong games from Henderson, Isa Benitez (132) and Anastasia Updike (131), won game two, 618-549, and then swept the Baker-format games 136-106 and 127-92.

Sequim looked to keep that momentum going but fell just short in a 5-2 loss to Olympic on Dec. 12 in Port Angeles, with the visiting Trojans’ one-point win in game two clinching the match.

Updike posted her top scores of the young season with games of 145 and 142 pins, while Henderson added a 168-pin second game — tops among all competing bowlers in the match.

McKeown added a 251-pin series (131-120) but the visiting Trojans out-pointed Sequim 605-564 in game one and 626-625 in the decisive second game. The Wolves won the Baker games 14-108 and 134-118.

Sequim was scheduled to bowl at Olympic on Dec. 17 — results were not available at press time. The Wolves are off the lanes for winter break. Sequim is back in action Jan. 7 at Olympic before hosting Bremerton on Jan. 9 and, in the final regular match of the season, a Jan. 16 home date against North Mason.
