Pictured above — Skip Wilson, Kirsten Allan and Nettie Wann.
Kirsten Allan may have bowled for Buhler High School during her career, but McPherson’s Starlite Lanes was like home sweet home for her.
Allan on Wednesday at Starlite received an award for bowling the highest high school girls’ series in the United States during the 2013 season. In a meet at Starlite, Allan bowled an amazing 824, which averages out to nearly 275 a game.
Allan, who has bowled in the McPherson Youth Association led by Nettie Wann and for coach Skip Wilson at Buhler, was the Class 5-1A state champion last year with games of 269-226-211 for a 706 series, which was two pins better than Carroll’s Anna Bohr. The Crusaders took third as a team after winning the state title in 2012. They also had a second- and another third-place state finish during Allan’s career.
Allan now bowls for Tabor College.
