W.F West Girls Bowling Runs Win Streak to 20


The W.F. West Bearcats completed a sweep of Black Hills Monday, winning their 20th-straight match dating back to the 2019-20 season.

The Bearcats had a tough match against Black Hills last Thursday and had to come right back Monday to beat the Wolves, 3-0, and total pins, 2194-1972.

The Bearcats were again led in scoring by sophomore Piper Chalmers, who had a big 681 series averaging 227. 

“Piper was locked in the first two games, shooting 245 and 266, but running out of gas a little bit the last game (and) still dominated everyone,” W.F. West assistant coach Rich Bunker said. “The rest of the Bearcats struggled a bit but stayed focused and did a great job of picking up their spares and mixing in timely strikes, and managed to average 168.”

Next up for the Bearcats is Shelton Highclimbers at 3 p.m., Tuesday, at Westside Lanes in Olympia. The Bearcats are off  Wednesday but are traveling to Snohomish to attend a bowling clinic put on by Off Broadway Bowling Academy.
