     Bellevue took advantage of its home surroundings to defeat both Monticello High School varsity bowling teams Thursday, Dec. 7 at Horizon Lanes in Bellevue.

     The Comets won the varsity boys match 2577 to 2456, and took the girls match 1858 to 1743. The losses dropped both Monticello teams to 1-1 on the season.

     Monticello did sweep the junior varsity matches, leaving both Panther JV teams 2-0.

     Monticello’s varsity girls won the Baker round, outscoring the Comets by a total of 16 pins over the five games, but it wasn’t enough to make up the 131-pin deficit the Panthers faced after the individual round.

     Cassie Gillmore had the top individual score (145) and top two-game score for the Panthers (280), and Natalie Newhard was close behind at 132-143–275. Evee Krouse totaled 231, Hope Vorbeck 193, Jordan Lorenzen 183, and Shana Timm 178.

     The Panther boys were outscored in both rounds. Bellevue won the two-game individual round, 1726 to 1660, and topped Monticello by another 55 pins in the Baker round.

     Caleb Gillmore led Monti in the individual round with a two-game total of 360, and Hayo Eiben was close behind with 355. Kegan Arduser had a 329 total, Levi Temple scored 328, Robert Pejchl 288 and David Titman 273. Temple had the top single game score on the team, a 201. Gillmore had a 193.

     Monticello swept the junior varsity matches. The boys won 1881 to 1566. Autry Fasnacht had the team’s top single game score (154) and two-game total (272).

     The Panther JV girls won 1006 to 848. The Baker round was not completed, so only the individual two-game totals figured into the team score. Grace Heinrich and Yutana Hughes shared the highest two-game totals, at 222 apiece. Heinrich’s 129 was the top individual game for the team.
