Le Mars Bowling Sweeps Sioux City East After a Month Away from Competition

The Le Mars bowling teams finally got back to competition on Tuesday night by sweeping Sioux City East at home. The girls won 2629-1816, and the boys shot a season-high to win 3208-2459.

After nearly a month off of competition, the Bulldog girls were maybe still trying to knock off some of the cobwebs when they stepped to the line. The Bulldogs, who rank as one of the state’s best, shot their lowest total of the season against the Black Raiders. Head coach Gary Brady says there were some opportunities to score better that were not taken advantage of.

The Bulldogs have been showing signs of inconsistency at times throughout the season. Whether that is frame to frame or game to game, Coach Brady says it could be a product of a number of factors including a bit of youth on the team.

Le Mars now goes from having no competitions for a month to having multiple in the span of a couple of weeks. The Bulldogs head to Council Bluffs on Friday to take on Thomas Jefferson, and Coach Brady says it will be nice to be in constant competition mode again.

The Bulldogs remained perfect now sitting at 5-0 on the season in their dual meets.

The Le Mars boys relished their time off using their first competition back to shoot their season-best by nearly 100 pins. The Bulldogs were locked and loaded as a team with no major weak points anywhere in a dominant victory over the Black Raiders. Head coach Travis Jones says the guys benefitted by not simply going through the motions over the break.

The Bulldogs wasted no time in building a lead using some momentum from many 200+ individual games. Coach Jones says that start was important because it set the tone for the rest of the match.

Le Mars brought back a lot of experience from last year’s team and is poised for a deep run. Coach Jones says every thing in the macro-sense is taken care of. Now, it comes down to focusing on the little things that make the difference late in the season.
