Buffs' bowlers fall to Panthers in WAC dual


Every time that the Garden City High School bowling teams have traveled to Great Bend to compete against the rival Panthers, they've had more than their share of problems on the lanes at Walnut Bowl.

Tuesday was no different as the Buffs' boys and girls suffered losses to the Panthers.

The Buffs' boys got the worst end of the deal, coming up well short of the Panthers, losing the first 3-game series soundly, 2,615-2,377 and then losing the 3-game Baker competition 544-504. In the process, the Buffs managed to secure just one point while Great Bend tallied 10 to dominate the six-game format.

"It was a little rough today (Tuesday)," GCHS coach Kip Nichols said. "It's always a tough place to bowl, and today was no different. We'll take it, move on and work on getting better."

The girls, meanwhile, were slightly more successful, going 4-7 in points.

The Lady Buffs lost the 3-game team series by a 1,987-1,930 count and then won the Baker set 476-456. They picked up two points with a second-game victory in the individual/team portion of the competition and then won two of three games in the Baker format (five bowlers roll two frames each).

GCHS' boys managed to win just one of the three Baker games for their lone point of the day. That was in game two where they dominated 213-158, but soundly lost games 1 and 3 of the Baker format. They lost all three games of the individual/team format.

Top bowler for the Lady Buffs was Vicki Newell with a 495 series (133-215-147) while Mickey Bridges topped the Buffs' boys with a 622 series (182-255-185).

The Buffs return to action with a 3 p.m. Tuesday home dual against Dodge City at the Garden Bowl.
