Weather even stops bowlers from rolling

Adapted bowling, the only spring sport going this season, finally fell victim to the winter weather that has plagued the area.

Last Friday’s adapted bowling meet was postponed when North Branch schools closed due to the winter storm. Coach John Grund said it was the first time in his nine years of coaching that a meet was postponed due to the weather.

But the team was able to compete the week before versus Wayzata/Minnetonka.

Alana Stahley won the girls PI (physical impairment) singles division with a total of 359 pins, while Chelsea Knutson rolled a 339 to earn second place. Charles Otto took third place with a score of 357 in the boys PI singles division.

In boys CI (cognitive impairment) singles, Chad Bauman tallied 407 to take second place, and Dakota Burgeson accumulated 381 to place seventh. In girls CI singles, Jade Anerson and Marie Rodge both rolled 364 to finish ninth, Ashley Novak scored 354 to come in 10th and Joy Edyvean scored 320 to place 11th.

The CI team, consisting of Bauman, Burgeson, Anderson and Rogde, totaled 1,516 pins to Wayzata/Minnetonka’s 1,725 team score.

Next up, the Vikings adapted bowling team is scheduled to compete against St. Peter at JJ’s Bowling Lanes in North Branch at 9 a.m. Friday, April 26.
