WR bowlers compete in state tournament

Dakota Farrer made her second appearance in state, while Morgan Smith made her first trip.

A pair of White River High bowlers, Dakota Farrer and Morgan Smith, represented their school during last week’s state tournament in Tacoma.

The state event brought together bowlers from all classifications for three days of action at the Narrow Plaza venue.

The White River duo bowled Friday, Feb. 1, in a combined Class 2A/1A competition. Each participant rolled a pair of three-game series.

Farrer, a senior who was the Hornets’ top bowler all season, was making her second appearance in the state tourney. She finished 31st in a large field. She started with a three-game set that included 178, 144 and 122 scores, then came back to post games of 115, 143 and 142. Her 844 total gave her a tournament average of 141.

Smith, a freshman, totaled 693 with an initial series of 99, 118 and 156, followed by a second set of 94, 125 and 101.

The tournament marked the end of the second season of bowling as a varsity sport at White River.
