SM North, Maranatha bowling enjoy adapting to Baker format
January 24, 2017
The Shawnee Mission North and Maranatha Christian Academy bowling teams have had some experience in past seasons of competing in tournaments with a Baker format, but Monday’s quadrangular at Park Lanes was unlike any other that the Indians and Eagles have participated in. Monday’s quadrangular between Maranatha, SM North, Olathe Northwest and Atchison pitted each squad’s five varsity bowlers together to roll nine Baker games to determine a boys and girls team champion. At the conclusion of the nine Baker games, the SM North girls were crowned team champions with a final score of 1,309, and Olathe Northwest won the tournament on the boys side — edging the Indians by 173 pins. Atchison and Maranatha finished third and fourth, respectively, for the boys and girls competitions.
