The Park bowling team went 0-2 last week, bowling at Maddies in South St. Paul on Oct. 13. Park’s varsity squad lost to Simley 4-1 and Cretin-Derham Hall 5-0.
High school bowling competitions are done using the “Baker” style of bowling. In a Baker game, five players bowl with each individual bowling two frames. The first bowler bowls the first and sixth frames, the second bowler bowls the second and seventh frames and so on, with the fifth bowler bowling the fifth and 10th frames. In this manner, one entire game is bowled. A match consists of five games, with the first team to win three games being the winner. There is no individual competition.
Park coach Lori Munson said the Wolfpack got “good performances” by Joe Richard and Rachael Kittelson in the first match and Nick Backer in the second match.
In addition to the varsity matches, Park’s No. 1 JV team fell 0-2, losing to South St. Paul 3-2 and Simley 4-1, while Park’s No. 2 JV team went 1-1, beating South St. Paul 4-1 and falling 3-2 to Cretin-Derham Hall.
Our next match is our last match before the conference tournament and it will be at Park Grove Bowl.
Park’s next match is the team’s last before the conference tournament. It’s the Wolfpack’s home match – at Park Grove Bowl – on Oct. 27 with a start time of 2 p.m.
