For the first time in school history, the Newton High School boys’ bowling team completed its league season undefeated. The Railers swept a triangular Tuesday at Play-Mor Lanes. Newton rolled a season-high team score of 2,541, followed by Salina Sacred Heart at 2,268 and Campus at 2,174. The Railer girls fell to Campus 2,154-1,899. Sacred Heart doesn’t field a girls’ team. “That was our best score of the year,” Newton coach Keith Woolery said. “The boys are 4-0 in the league, and that’s the first time they’ve ever done that. We had three boys roll a 600 and one who missed it by two pins. It was a good day all-around. We beat Sacred Heart, a team that beat us earlier this season.” Newton claimed the top three series of the meet, led by Bryan Esau at 654. Austin Gronau was four pins back at 650. Gabe Serrano was third at 650. Jerrod Ashcraft of Newton had the high game of the day at 242, followed by Gronau at 236 and Serrano at 236. “Bryan did well at 654 and Austin was right behind him,” Woolery said. “Jerrod was just two pins off a 600. This should give them a lot of confidence going into the league tournament.” In the girls’ competition, Emily Dull of Campus had the high series of 576, followed by Madison Taylor at 547. Newton’s Melina Schrader was third at 533. Taylor rolled the high game of 220, followed by Dull with a 212 and a 197. “The girls struggled today,” Woolery said. “That was their lowest score of the season. Everybody on the varsity seemed to be struggling.” The Railer boys are 8-5 overall. The Railer girls are 6-5, 1-3 in AV-CTL I competition. Newton competes with Wichita Heights and Derby at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at Northrock Lanes, the site of the state tournament. Newton’s final home meet is 3:30 p.m. Tuesday with Goddard and Goddard Eisenhower at Play-Mor Lanes.
