Bowling

Keene bowling continues strong season

CLAREMONT — The Keene High bowling team (2-0) continued its winning ways Saturday against Stevens High School and Hillsborough-Deering in Claremont.

Both last week and this week the group used the opening two games to adjust to the lanes, communicate its findings and build to a strong collective finish.

This week’s adjustments were made in the lineup for the playoff bakers series against Hillsborough-Deering and then Stevens. The outcome remained much the same with two consecutive wins against Hillsborough-Deering. Every member of the team contributed to the victories.

Against Stevens, the starting five fought for the first victory and won with a very solid 234. As the lane pattern shifted the group put in a solid 210 to seal the win.

This marked the fourth consecutive 200+ finals baker performance.
