The Newton High School bowling teams made their home debut Tuesday, taking second and third in a triangular at Play-Mor Lanes.

In the girls’ competition, Maize won at 1,934, followed by Newton at 1,689 and Salina Central at 1,565.

Salina Central won the boys’ competition at 2,461, followed by Maize at 2,371 and Newton at 2,296.

“Everybody’s improving,” Newton coach Joanie Pauls said. “This was the first time we met Salina Central, so that counted as our league match against them, so it was nice to see our girls get a win against them. The girls’ have improved significantly since the beginning of the year. We have lots of kids contributing.

“For the boys, Brett (Ashcraft) is having a very good year so far. He’s averaging a little over 200. He’s been extremely consistent. The rest of the team has been a little inconsistent, but they are able to pick each other up. This is actually our best score in a dual or tri for the season.”

Mary Rozner of Maize had the girls’ high series of 489, followed by Caylie Harris of Maize at 477 and KaiLee O’Connor of Salina Central at 472.

Harris rolled the high game of 193, followed by Rozner at 181 and Harris again at 165.

Newton was led by Bryanna Walton at 437, Shelby Wolfe at 435, Kayla McGarton at 418. Tiffany Steffl at 399, Reagan Morris at 358 and Hailey Gratton at 350. Wolfe rolled Newton’s high game of 157, followed by Walton at 156.

Chase Young of Salina Central had the boys’ high series of 628, followed by teammate Preston Miller at 617. Zach Winegarner of Maize was third at 608.

Marvin Rozner of Maize rolled the high game of 238, followed by Young at 235 and Newton’s Treyton Rice at 229.

Ashcraft had Newton’s high series of 602, followed by Rice at 570, Cooper Burns at 543, Joey Gile at 523, Kobe Burns at 479 and Patrick Vasquez at 426.

Ashcraft rolled a 222 and a 207. Kobe Burns rolled a 213.

“It’s nice to bowl at home,” Pauls said. “The conditions we have here are unique with wood lanes. I like to bowl at different places. We have some kids who struggle to make the adjustment to synthetic lanes. I like to go to as many different places as we can.”

Newton travels to The Alley in Hutchinson for the Buhler Invitational, a meet that had to be rescheduled because of the weather.

Newton’s home finale is 3 p.m. Tuesday with Cheney and Salina South.
