Bowlers score well at state tourney
Following a tough season that had them looking at placing last in their league, a team of bowlers from Mountain Home finished third overall during a state-level event that wrapped up in early May.
Art's Synthetic Lube rounded out the top three out of 85 teams competing in the Division II team event at the 69th Annual Idaho State Championship, held at Westy's Garden Lanes in Garden City.
The Mountain Home team finished the tournament with a 3,029 total pin fall. During the competition, Jimmy Dawson rolled a 217 game and a 616 series for the Mountain Home squad. Thomas Potter rolled a 223 game and Chris Lacey had a 267 game with a 649 series.
During the 2015 to 2016 winter bowling season, Art's Synthetic Lube battled for last place in the Monday Night Classic league at Freedom Lanes in Mountain Home. Although the team's efforts were failing on Monday nights, they scored well during the city and state tournaments, Lacey said.
At the 10th Annual Open City Championships at Freedom Lanes, which wrapped up in early March, Art's Synthetic Lube won first place in the team event with a total pin fall of 2,583. Adding to the team's efforts were Jeff Aiken's 554 series and Lacey's 612 series.
