KANELAND—After a Thursday snowfall shelved Kaneland’s meeting in Ottawa, the Lady Knights took to the lanes on Saturday as part of the IMSA Invite, and on Tuesday when they hosted Rochelle.

Outscoring teams like Chicago outfit St. Ignatius, the Lady Knights (2-12) got some valuable time out on the lanes before heading into Tuesday’s home finale against Rochelle, where Kaneland was edged 2,590-2,452.

In IMSA, bowlers were grouped according to season average, and KHS was treated to a first place in division 7 by Angela Charhut, a second place by Amanda Strayve in division 6 and a first place for Seleana Isaacs in division 6.

Isaacs had high game for the day at 214 and high series in 508.

Taking on the Hubs for Senior Night, the Lady Knights took solace in a 458 series from Anne Salerno and a 448 series from Strayve.

High game was bowled by Salerno at 177.

Senior Isaacs thinks the overall game for the Lady Knights is improving, and felt no added pressure on her last home matchup.

“I tried not to let it mess me up and just tried to focus on the game,” Isaacs said. “I tried not to worry about it. I think we’re getting better throughout the year slowly, and aren’t losing by as much. We just want to be consistent with the regional coming up.”

Kaneland’s JV squad earned a 2,230-1,957 win over its Hub counterpart.

KHS was scheduled to travel to Ottawa on Thursday, Jan. 21, for a snow makeup date.
