Peter Huguenin

St. Albert boys and Lewis Central girls bowled some big wins on Thursday in a quad that also featured Thomas Jefferson.

The game comes eight days before the Council Bluffs city tournament.

The St. Albert boys finished with 3,181, Lewis Central scored 2,827 and Thomas Jefferson finished with 2,481.

“We left a lot of pins today,” said St. Albert head coach Mike Klusman. “We still have a few things to clean up when adapting to oily humid conditions. We’re going in the right direction.

“The girls keep improving and when they discover the reserve system, they reach the limit. Overall very happy with these kids, they give 100%”

The Lewis Central girls won with 2,450 points, St. Albert scored 2,052 and TJ finished with 1,975.

On the boys’ side, St. Albert sophomore Cole Pekny led all bowlers with a two-game 433 run and a 236 high game.

“Today’s meeting seemed to come down to saving for both teams,” said LC head coach Paul Renshaw. “Individually, both teams left about 200 pins, but both were pretty solid in bakers. The boys had a low baker’s score of 185 today where we normally have a game of 125-135 in the mix. We moved freshman Treveon Hansen to the varsity for today’s game and he held up today. I was impressed. Both Coach Reed and I feel that our boys are exactly where we want to be in next week’s City Tournament.

“On the girls side, our individuals were lower than expected at home bowling, but our bakers were a breath of fresh air. We were about 250 pins down from our home average today and we’ve left way too much makeup. I am confident that four days of free target practice will get us back on track.”

The Council Bluffs City Tournament, featuring all three schools and Abraham Lincoln, will take place at Thunderbowl on January 28 at 1:00 PM.
