MARYSVILLE — Athletes from three local high school bowling teams are gearing up for the WSBPA High School Varsity Championships on Feb. 16-17, at Acme Bowl in Tukwila, Wash.
The Marysville Arts and Technology first team, the Lakewood High School bowling team and two singles competitors from Marysville-Pilchuck High School have qualified for the championship event.
Bryson Parker, a Marysville-Pilchuck singles bowler, is in fourth place in Division A with a 197 average, while teammate Matt Altoff is in ninth place in Division B with a 154 average.
For Arts and Tech, the team consists of Jered James, Baylie Self, Joel Scott, Chance Mair and Kylee Heath, and one alternate in case of injuries, Gary Dunham. The team average is 729.
Lakewood competitors are Ellen Dowell, Garrett Browning, Spencer Valley, Ryan Zaffarano, Charles Davis and Kimberly Pitts, with a team average of 715.
Parker, Mair and Self were three of the five members on the winning team for the Snohomish County All-Stars High School Tournament in December.
“Strawberry Lanes has graciously let both Lakewood and Arts and Tech keep practicing for the upcoming tournament,” said Christine Mair, Chance Mair’s mother. “We are all very grateful to them for their generosity.”
