Press Staff Report

The familiar confines of Cadillac Lanes will suit the Charles City High School bowling squads just fine.

They’re more than happy to get a return invite to the bowling alley in Waterloo that will host the state co-ed meet this coming Monday.

The Comets sent its girls and boys teams to the state qualifying meet held at Cadillac Lanes on Tuesday.

The Charles City boys squad scored the second-highest team total overall in Class 1A with 3,219 points. Cade Schmidt was the state’s top regional bowler on Tuesday, as he rolled a 524 series. The regional champ’s first game score was 234 and his second tally was a remarkable roll of 290.

“He also strung eight more strikes in the Baker games, ending the string at 19 in a row,” said Comet head coach Doug Bohlen.

Next in line for the Comet boys were Nathan Girkin (440), Noah Reams (432), Dillan Ross (418), Nathan Shultz (370) and Cael Bohlen (352).

The Louisa-Muscatine squad bowled the highest team score on the boys side with a 3,426.

The Comet girls team qualified with the third-best regional score in the state with a 2,565. This was their second-highest team score of the season. Louisa-Muscatine accumulated the top regional girls team score with a 3,102.

Joslyn Cotton rolled a season-high 406 for Charles City and was her region’s champ. She tallied a 210 in her opening round and followed that up with a 196.

Sarah Mitchell produced a 371, Brianna Ross a 340, Heather Viers knocked down pins to a 310 clip, Imigin McHenry notched a 275 and Sofia Nelson carded a 268 to round out Charles City’s scoring.
