OTTUMWA — The Mt. Pleasant bowling teams had their first meet of the season on Monday evening. The two teams traveled to Ottumwa to take on the hosting Bulldogs, Fairfield and West Des Moines Valley.

The Panthers weren’t able to outscore Ottumwa in either matchup, but the girls did finish ahead of SEC-rival Fairfield.

The Mt. Pleasant boys shot a 2,295. Levi Mills led the individual scores with a 340, throwing 179 in his first game and 161 in his second. Mark Steinhoff threw a 136 and a 178 to give the Panthers another score above 300, at 314.

Ethan Oilar threw a 152 and a 134 to finish at 286. Brandon Parton rolled a 117 and a 164 to finish at 281, and Sam Anderson bowled a 128 and a 150 for a final score of 278.

The Panther boys had a fairly consistant output in the baker games. The bakers went 163, 132, 169, 164 and 168, for a total score of 796.

The Panther girls finished at 1,967, which topped Fairfield’s score of 1,591. Emily Shumaker had the best day of any Panther bowler, shooting a 166 in her first game and a 181 in her second game to finish at 347.

Gillian Anderson rolled a 136 and a 132 to place second on the team at 268. Alexis Wohlleber rolled a 128 and a 113 for a total of 241. Brittany Triska rolled a 107 and a 91 to score 198. Tylisa Kelly was right behind Triska with an 81 and a 113 to finish at 194, and Meadow Jensen rolled a 62 and a 64 to finish at 126, which was scratched from the team total due to being the sixth score.

The Panther baker games went 133, 146, 132, 156 and 152, giving the MP girls a 719.

In junior varsity action, Clayton Wilson led the boys with a 183 (89, 94). Oliver Sowell rolled a 180 (81, 99), and Payton Lovan rolled a 175 (72, 103). The girls were led by Alex Hedgecock at 163 (101, 62), followed by Arlouny Phosy’s 148 (73, 75), and Rachel Kuckes’ 92 (54, 38).

Two junior varsity boys, Oliver Sowell and Clayton Wilson, combined with three Ottumwa bowlers for a 1,065 total in the bakers games. The three JV girls rolled two rounds of bakers, which finished at 348 and 403, for a total of 751.

The MPCHS bowling teams will be back in action on Saturday, Dec. 2, at Louisa-Muscatine. That meet is set to start at 1 p.m.
