The first Eastern Kansas League tournament for the Mill Valley boys and girls bowling teams was one they won't soon forget, as they claimed the traveling trophy on both sides after their respective first-place finishes. Abby Berner set the tone for the Mill Valley girls team with a Game 1 score of 220, and went on to win the tournament with a three-game series of 530. Berner was the only girls bowler to have a series of 500 or better, as she helped Mill Valley edge St. James by 37 pins for first place. Hunter Turpin led the Mill Valley boys squad with a 583 series to place fourth individually. St. James took fourth as a team on the boys side behind a 548 series from Grant Huerter.
