McPherson High’s boys bowling team rolled a season-best 2,545 on Friday at Starlite Lanes, highlighted by three bowlers who rolled better than 600.

That was enough to defeat Circle (2,132) and Cheney (2,100).

Taylor Miller had a monster series with a 248-223-224 for a 693. Clayton Ouellette shook off a struggling 143 opening game as he came back with 258 and 246 for 647. Matt Stiggins was the third Bullpup over 600 with a 634, which included two games over 200.

"The boys improved a lot over their last meet as a team," MHS coach Herb Halinski said. "Clayton got off to a rough start, but once he got the right ball he was off to the races. I am really proud of Clayton for not giving up after a bad start. He has really showed maturity by thinking of what he needed to do and did it. Taylor had a great day leading all of the boys. All of the boys contributed."

Like the boys, the MHS girls are also 2-0 in matches as they outlasted both Cheney and Circle.

Brooke Miller and Cheyann Williams paced MHS with 549 and 525, respectively. Miller had a 211 game and Williams two 194s to highlight their efforts.

"The girls really did well behind Brooke and Cheyann" Halinski said. "All of the spare practice has really helped them out and they are starting to come into their own."

The MHS girls scored 1,940, while Cheney had 1,685 and Circle had 1,694.
