Records are meant to be broken; even though bowling is only six years old the record for the highest series has fallen in the past couple of days. Jennifer Wood set the record of 698 in 2007, sister Becca Wood broke that record with a 705 and then sophomore Mackenzie Saulnier crushed it with a 749. On January 22 the raven bowling team competed against Olathe South and Shawnee Mission North, at this tournament Mackenzie broke the record bowling a 749 for the series. The next day the ravens bowled against Shawnee Mission Northwest in a baker style tournament, the baker style tournament is a method of team play in which all five bowlers bowl together to make one game, Olathe Northwest placed high in this tournament. Mackenzie Saulnier says this about the raven’s chance for state “I actually think we have a huge chance of going to state this season, last year we missed it by 21 pins which was a bummer. We lost a lot of girls but this year we have a lot of raw talent.” Jennifer Wood previously held the highest series record, Jennifer set this record six years ago in the 2007-2008 school year, and her score was 698. On January 24, Becca Wood bowled a 705 also beating one of Jennifer Wood’s records. The bowling team’s first two meets have the girls scoring 2150 and 2129. Both of those scores would have placed at the state tournament last year, the bowling team is off to a great start but still have a ways to go. The next tournament for the bowling team is Wednesday, January 30; the team will bowl against Olathe North, Shawnee Mission North, Shawnee Mission Northwest, Shawnee Mission West, and Gardner Edgerton at Mission bowl.
