The Charles City Comet girls and boys bowling teams were in Des Moines yesterday competing at Plaza Lanes for the Class 1A State Bowling Tournament and were able to walk away with some hardware. The Comet girls finished with a total pin count of 2837 which gave them a third place trophy and they had two medalists, Macy Ross had a 227 and a 211 for a 438 series which gave her third place overall and Katie Sickman had a 193 and a 202 which was good enough for seventh place with a 395. On the boys side, Charles City finished with a 2893 which gave them fifth place as a team and Drew Mitchell tied for fourth as both of his games were 224 and he had a 448 series and Kaleb Ross was right behind him in sixth place with games of 222 and 223 for a 445 series. Congratulations to both the Comet girls and boys bowling teams on another fantastic season.
In a game heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet boys basketball team hosted Crestwood in a Class 3A District 6 Semi-Final. The Comets played against the Cadets on the wrong night as Crestwood came out on fire and hit 8 three-pointers in the first half and led it 35-23 at halftime. The Comets could not find any offensive rhythm in the second half either and managed just five points in the third quarter and ended up losing the game 60-37. Charles City’s boys finish their season with a 15-7 record and say good-bye to seniors Jaden Foster and Dalton Cleveland who played in their final game last night.
The Rockford Warrior girls basketball team played against North Linn last night in a Class 2A Region 5 Final in Parkersburg. The Warrior girls picked a bad time to have their worse offensive game of the season as they were defeated by a final score of 47-18 and wind up one game short of making the State Tournament. Rockford’s girls finish their season with a record of 20-4 and will have to replace nine seniors from this year’s team.
