The high school girls bowling team in Beaver Dam is heading to state. Here’s an update on the boys and girls season from head coach Mike Monheim.
The boy’s finished in 3rd place in District 6 competition with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses. District 6 was only given 1 – Division 1 spot in the state tournament, which was awarded to the District 6 champion Watertown. Boys had a great season finishing just shy of their goal to make State. Sophmore Aiden Warmka earned a bid to the State Tournament for the individual portion after finishing in 4th place in District 6 with a 84.8% fill percentage. Warmka also earned a spot on the District 6 All-Star team scheduled to compete on March 13th in Milwaukee.
The girls finished the regular season winning the District 6 end of year tournament. They earned a bid to the State Tournament with a 4-10 season record, finishing first amongst the District 6 – Division 2 girls teams. After graduating 5 seniors last season, the girls team had a much different look this year, including first year coach Calista Janusz. Calista is a Beaver Dam High School alum and a 4 year team member, being a part of two – 3rd place finishing teams at the State tournament. Calista did a fantastic job helping the relatively inexperienced team achieve their goal of making the state tournament. Along with Warmka, Junior Samantha Radig also earned a state tournament bid in the individual portion with a 78.1% fill percentage. Radig also finished in 4th place amongst girls in District 6 and earns a spot on the Girls District 6 All-Star team.
State Tournament will be held this Saturday, March 5-7th and Ashwaubenon Lanes near Green Bay. Both Warmka and Radig will compete in the singles qualifying on Friday March 5th at 4:30pm. The girls will begin their team portion qualifying on Saturday March 6th at 9:30am.
