The Beaver Dam High School girls bowling team wrapped up their regular season this past weekend by winning their fourth straight District 6 title at Watertown. With the win, the BD girls earned the right to defend their 2019 state title at the Wisconsin State High School Bowling Championships at Dale’s Weston Lanes in Wausau on March 6-8. Seniors Marissa Munro and Haylee Schwark both earned spots into the state singles competition with strong showings. Munro was 2nd and Schwark 4th in District 6. Four girls get state bids in District 6 based on fill percentage, the percentage of spares + strikes. Munro and Schwark will also accompany sophomore Samantha Radig to the Wisconsin High School All-Star tournament on March 14th. Radig finished 5th in the division. The All-Star Tournament is where each division puts together their top five bowlers to compete against the other districts in the state.
The Beaver Dam boys team finished the season strong but fell just short of a state tournament bid. With no seniors, all six bowlers will return next season and look to keep rolling in the 2020/21 season. Joshua Fisch, who attends Watertown Luther Prep, joined the boys team this season as a co-op member. Fisch finished 5th in the District, earning him a bid for singles competition at the State Tournament. District 6 takes five boys to state for singles competition. Fisch will also join the boys’ District 6 All-Star team for competition on March 14th.
Beaver Dam freshman Karlee Albert led the junior varsity squad by winning the District 6 JV championship. Albert had the highest fill percentage amongst the girls on JV.
