DALLAS — On Jan. 18, the Dallas Dragons bowling team competed in the district tournament at the Town and Country Lanes in Keizer.
After 20 qualifying rounds of baker style, a method of competition-style bowling that emphasizes an entire team effort rather than the performance of its individuals, the girls team nabbed a fourth-place victory, with the boys doing the same.
After 10 more games, the girls missed the finals by just 50 points, taking a fourth-place finish overall. The boys team was seeded second in the finals, and after losing a two-game match against Sprague High School, the boys finished in third place, which automatically qualified them for the state championship tournament for the second year in a row. The state tournament will be held at Firebird Lanes in Salem on Feb. 21, 22 and 23.
