Nathan Wanned Qualifies for State Bowling Tournament

Nathan Wanned, sophomore

Congratulations to Nathan Wanned on qualifying individually for the State Bowling Tournament on March 12  at Plaza Lanes in Des Moines.  Nathan qualified for this event during the State Qualifying Meet on February 14.

In order to qualify individually students must either win their event or be in the top eight highest scores.  Each participant bowls two individual games and the total of these two games determines who ends up in the top 16 at State.  Nathan bowled a season-high game of 258 and a season-high series of 461 at the Qualifying Meet.  The score of 461 has Nathan ranked at 13  going in to the final tournament.

The Waukee Boys’ Bowling team just missed qualifying for the team competition this year.   They team consists of bowlers from Waukee High School, Perry High School and A-D-M High School.  The varsity squad this year consisted of Tyler Blaisdell (Perry), Connor Slater (A-D-M), Bryce Bucklew (Perry) Austin Young, Andrew Sullwold, Jonah Starmer and Nathan Wanned.  The team bowled a season high score of 2961 at the State Qualifier, which left them only a few pins away from qualifying for State.  Team scores are made up of the top five of six individual scores for a team and then five Baker’s Games bowled by the team.  Baker’s Games involved all top five bowlers in one game.

The boys look to build off of their 8-4 season this year as they return 6 of 7 letter winners for next years season.  We wish Nathan the best of luck and know that he will proudly represent the Warriors!
