The Pine Island H.S. Bowling team heads into the Conference Roll Offs this Saturday, 1:00 at Winona Bowl in WInona. The Varsity finished the regular season with a 7-7 record and a 4th place finish in the Southeast Eastern Conference. They will take on the 5th seed from Zumbrota-Mazeppa in the best 2 out of 3 game match and if they survive would then take on the #1 seed from Winona (13-1) in the Semifinals. The winner of the Roll off tournament earns the bid to go to the State Tournament in December in the Metro area. The JV team also ended the regular season last week with a 4-10 record and good for the #8 seed, they will face the #9 seed from Lake City White (3-11) with the winner facing up against the undefeated #1 seed of Winona Black (14-0). Over the last two weekends the JV team was only able to win 1 of their 4 matches. The Varsity team went 1-1 in Rushford two weeks ago and was highlighted by Jacob Wolkenhauer's fill % on the day of 91%, only one open frame in his 11 attempts! Last week the team hosted everyone in Pine Island and they also went 1-1 on the day. Alison Narveson had a great day, only 4 open frames in her 20 attempts, for a overall fill percentage of 80%! Good Luck this Saturday in Winona.
