Saturday, February 17 found the Lowell Red Arrow Bowling teams in action at the Mona Shores Invitational at Sherman Lanes, a 50 lane bowling center in Muskegon. The house was full with a combination of 23 girls teams and 24 boys teams from throughout West Michigan. Sherman Lanes will host the Division 2 Regional Tournament in two weeks. Coach Jennifer Clark counseled her young team to take advantage of the day to practice different shots and approaches to the Sherman lane conditions to ready them for the Regional Tournament on Friday and Saturday, February 24 and 25.
The day began with a Qualifying Round after which the field was cut to the top 8 teams. The Qualifying Round consisted of 3 regular games and 4 Baker games. The Girls ended the Qualifying Round in the middle of the pack and gained a lot of good experience in preparation for the Conference and Regional tournaments coming up.
The Lady Arrows will bowl their last regular Conference Match on Wednesday, February 14 at Eastbrook Lanes against Forest Hills Central. The Conference Tournament will follow on Saturday morning, February 17 at Northfield Lanes.
