Dodger bowlers sweep

Both the Fort Dodge boys and girls bowling teams impressed Thursday night with convincing home victories over Des Moines Hoover at Ridgewood Lanes.

The Dodger boys downed the Huskies by a 2,947-2,209 final.

Alex Markov (236-220-456) and Chase Messerly (227-227-454) led the way for the FDSH boys.

On the girls side, the Dodgers prevailed, 2,611-1,977.

Ciara Sturm (178-241-419) and Shelby Jacobson (183-179-362) were the top performers for Fort Dodge.

“We had a happy bunch of kids,” said FDSH head coach Don Ervin. “We just looked great (yesterday). We’ve been working hard all season, but we just need to get a little more consistent.”

Next action for the Dodgers is Monday when they host conference rival Mason City for a 3:30 p.m. start time.
