“Both coaches are very pleased with the way the kids bowled at Shawnee Lanes,” Washington boys coach Buckie Caulley said. “ It’s very difficult going to another set of lanes to bowl when all you’ve done is practice at your home lanes for over a month. Once they got through the nerves and settled down, things came together for both varsity teams.”
Washington is at Centerville Saturday and at Hillsboro Monday.
