Staff Reports

The Douglas Bowling Club dropped a 26.5-18.5 decision against Galena in the second round of the High Desert Interscholastic Bowling Program high school playoffs on Saturday in Carson City.

Angela Miller, Josh Salie and Anthony Hernandez “really shined” as a team with a performance at the Gold Dust West Bowling Center in which they rolled 190, 245, 244, 213 and 219 games, according to Douglas coach Dave Dickey.

“We were very close but came up short,” Dickey added.

The second-year Douglas team now stands with a 6-3 season record with another playoff match scheduled for next Wednesday at Coconut Bowl in Sparks.

“We still have the opportunity to go 8-3 for the season with a chance to finish third or fourth in the league,” Dickey said.

Douglas defeated McQueen in the first round of the playoffs.
