The Waukon bowling teams hosted their second consecutive opponent Friday, November 30 when Tripoli came to town for an early-season match-up. The Waukon squad split its pair of match-ups with the visiting Panthers, the Indian bowling boys picking up their first victory of the season, 2681-2513, while the Waukon girls surrendered a 1960-2199 final result to their guests.

The Lady Indians fell victim to a pair of 300 individual series’ bowled by Tripoli, including an event-high 365 rolled by Panther freshman Lauren Funk. The Indians were led by their lone 300-pin tally of 308 comprised of equal games of 154 from senior Megan O’Neill. Sophomore Taylor Peterson was next in line for Waukon with games of 110 and a team-high 159 for a 269 series, with senior Emma Roe not far behind with a 261 comprised of game tallies of 139 and 122.

The Waukon bowling boys benefited from the only 400-pin series bowled on the night, plus another right on the doorstep of that plateau, in getting off to a 1781-1650 advantage after the individual round of competition against Tripoli. Junior Matt Rozzell bowled a 409 series made up of a 214 and a 195, with senior Jorden Orr ending up just shy of a 400 series with his 399 that included a team-high game of 235 and a 164.

The Indians were next scheduled to hit the road for the first time this season, traveling to North Iowa Friday, December 7. The bowling Tribe will wrap up the pre-holiday portion of its schedule with a Friday, December 14 road contest at Decorah.
