Teagan Smale’s 201.3 is the highest per-game average in Division 1-A where the Eagles are among the favorites to win this season’s state bowling championship. The Eagles were runner-up in 2013.

“We are just continuing to work hard toward our goal of being the best team this year,” Smale said. “There is still room to work, but everyone is trying to do their best.”

Teammate Randall Berkheimer is averaging 184, while Dylan Amico is at 158 and Eddie Feeney is at 157.

Niki Schulz is rolling an average per game of 141.5, while teammate Amy Murphy is at 117.1, Aliya Anders is at 106.3 and Mariah Harvey is at 104.5.

The Eagles play at home at 6:30 p.m. Friday against Sunrise League opponent Tech. They also play at 6:30 p.m. at home Tuesday in a league game against Chaparral.

JV dominates Basic Rumble

Five junior varsity wrestlers took first place and another five took second place as Boulder City dominated the Basic Rumble JV Tournament Jan. 11.

“The kids did a great job,” varsity coach Jim Cox said. “To have so many first and second places in an eight-team tournament bodes well for our future.”
