Sophomore Zoey Rucker recorded the highest game in each of the individual rounds, and sophomores Olivia Linscomb, Lulu Elliott and Frances Arellano each outscored the Hendrickson opponent there were paired against in the individual games to enable the Knights to complete a 17-0 shutout of the Hawks.

The Knights are currently 2-0 in district play in both the girls’ division and the boys’ division.

“We have no doubt that we’ll move on to further competition,” senior Rose Dotson told MacJournalism on Friday. “We don’t take it too seriously though. The other schools have smaller teams, and we are all just having fun together.”

On Friday, the Hendrickson girls team only had three bowlers, so McCallum knew it was going to win before the first frame of round 1 began. Despite the lack of competition on the girls side, Dotson said that bowling for McCallum and in the Austin Capital District is great fun.

“We get to meet and talk with the other teams and see them more as friends and less as competitors,” Dotson said. “We laugh when we mess up and get greeted with high-fives when we get strikes.”
