The Columbus-Fall River high school bowling club kicked off its season on Nov. 10.
For the sake of having statewide uniformity, the format has changed this year. Instead of bowling two seven Baker game matches, the teams will now bowl two nine Baker game matches, with the team who wins more than five of the nine games being awarded one point, instead of the teams getting awarded points for each game won. The Columbus/Fall River varsity team, with team members Logan Denman, Brice Locke, Cole Locke, Anna Miller, Lauren Waddell, and Kylie Counard, and coached by Alex Watrud, traveled to Brownsville for the season’s first meet.
