LaTurner leading the way for WR bowlers

The Hornet recently bowled two games at 168 and 201.

The White River High bowling team saw its season record move to 5-5 the afternoon of Dec. 12, following dual-meet losses to the Steilacoom Sentinels and Washington Patriots.

Competing a Pacific Lanes in Tacoma, White River managed a total pinfall of 1,459. That trailed Steilacoom’s 1,662 and Washington’s 1,545.

The Hornets were again paced by Jojo LaTurner, a junior who has been the league’s top performer thus far. During the double-dual contest at Pacific Lanes, she rolled games of 168 and 201.

White River’s results were much better the afternoon of Dec. 10 when the Hornets hosted the first of their two home matches this season.

Competing at Daffodil Bowl in Puyallup, the Hornet girls swept a pair of opponents off the lanes. White River’s total pinfall of 1,647 outdistanced that of River Ridge, 1,194, and Clover Park, 1,311.

LaTurner led the way, improving her average by posting back-to-back scores of 205.

White River has now headed into a month-long break. The team’s next action comes Jan. 14 against Franklin Pierce and Renton, the Hornets’ second home match at Daffodil Bowl.
