State bowling: Selah winds up 8th

February 5, 2012 by  

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. — A week after dominating the Baker games, Selah was simply average Saturday and the Vikings were unable to move up the leaderboard in the Class 3A-2A state bowling tournament at Narrows Plaza Bowl.

Selah finished eighth in the eight-team division, although the Vikings’ final total was better than two of the eight Class 4A teams in the two-day event.

“When it was all over, I told them that, considering we were the only 2A team in the tournament, we have to consider our season was pretty good,” Selah coach William Foster said.

It was the second straight state trip for Selah, which took seventh last season.

After Friday’s six individual games, the Vikings were eighth with 6,498 pins. They added 2,123 more in Saturday’s 14 Baker games to finish at 6,498. Their Baker game average was 151.6, which Foster said was “right about our average” for the season.

Selah’s best Baker game was a 189, and it had five games of at least 173, but the Vikings also had three games of 125 and a low of 117.

“We had some good ones and some bad ones (Saturday),” said Foster, whose team averaged 178.7 in seven Baker games at district, including three 200-plus efforts. “They kind of woke up (after a slow start Saturday). They had fun.”

Mark Morris ran away with the 3A-2A title, finishing with 8,074 pins — 600 more than runner-up Wilson, and 358 more than 4A team champion Battle Ground.
