Newton bowlers sweep field at Pella
In their final meets before regionals on Thursday, the Newton boys and girls bowling teams made statements that they're eyeing spots at state.
The Cardinal boys earned their second-highest score of the season and the girls just edged out fast-charging Knoxville as both teams earned victories in their regular-season finales at Excite-A-Bowl in Pella on Saturday.
Starting out with strikes in their first six throws, it was clear the Cardinal boys would have a good day. Senior Dylan Van Sickle led Newton with a season-high first-round of 476, which included two big games of 236 and 240. Sophomore Alex Bare wasn’t far behind him with a 401 (177, 204), senior Jake Karlzen rolled a 388 (208, 180) and sophomore Payton Cox rounded out the Cards with a 335 (173, 162). Junior Ryan Bowen had a non-scoring total of 285 (127, 158).
