Shelton 1919, Aberdeen 1413
A slow start led to the first loss of the season for the Aberdeen Bobcats girls bowling team, dropping a non-league match to Shelton 1,919-1,413 at Westside Lanes in Olympia on Monday.
Led by Dreann Merriman’s high series of 430, Shelton (8-0 overall) took the first two games by scores of 793-550 and 843-603, respectively, and the first Baker game 164-110.
Aberdeen (3-1) responded by taking the final Baker game by a score of 150-119.
“Unusually, (we) started slowly and got better later,” Aberdeen head coach David Bruncke said. “Getting used to the lanes in Olympia took a little time.”
Aberdeen was led by Juli Villa, who had a team-high series 257.
Sierra Hammond had the top game for the Bobcats, bowling a 140 in Game 1.
Aberdeen will take on Rochester in the Bobcats’ first league match of the season at 3 p.m. on Wednesday at Fairway Lanes in Centralia.
