LINCOLN, Neb. — There’s an old bowling adage: Strikes are for show, spares are for dough. That was never more evident than in the Class B Unified Bowling State Championship.
Despite only knocking down one strike in the final two games, Lexington took down the reigning champs, Ogallala for their first state title in program history.
"It was a really good competition," said senior Daisy Gomez. "We were a little bit nervous, but at the same time, we knew what we could do and succeed and we showed it."
"They're always called themselves 'the Dream Team' because they've had really good games all year," said head coach Mary Reimers. "They've never let the adversity get to them and they've always come back when they've had a bad game or a bad frame."
From this resilience to their supportive attitude as a fivesome, the Minutemen made the most of their second-ever trip to Lincoln.
