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.
