KANELAND—For their second win of 2012-13, Kaneland High School bowling didn’t have to go far.
In a meeting at St. Paul’s Lanes in Aurora, KHS earned a 2,280-1,989 win over Illinois Math and Science Academy in a match in which the top five scores were officially counted.
Kaneland saw its dual mark improve to 2-6.
Angela Charhut led the way with a 464 series, followed closely by fellow Lady Knight Morgan Wojciechowski’s 463. Christie Crews also contributed with a 441.
Wojciechowski paced KHS with a team-high 177 game, followed by Charhut’s 170.
Mikayla Petesch of IMSA was tops for the Lady Titans with a 466 series.
At the Northern Illinois Big XII meet hosted by DeKalb at Mardi Gras Lanes, Kaneland took 10th in the 10-team gathering, with a final total of 5,305 pins knocked down. Nearby Sycamore won the tournament.
“We did not have a bad day, but the other teams just seemed to be bowling exceptionally well,” KHS coach Jim McKnight said.
Wojciechowski’s 218 and 193 games and 1,012 series were team-highs on the day. Ellissa Eckert added a 188 game of her own.
Up next for the Lady Knights is a meet with visiting Lisle on Wednesday, Jan. 30.
