DES MOINES — The Clarke boys bowling team broke a pair of school records here on Jan. 21 in a meet against Southeast Polk and Des Moines Hoover.

“It was a very exciting meet,” head coach Dale Helgevold said. “During the Baker games, they set two school records.”

It was a nice consolation prize for the Indians, who came up short of Southeast Polk’s mark in the team scores.

In game four of the Baker Rotation, Clarke rolled a 256, which broke the school record for best score in a Baker game. Also, the Baker Rotation score of 990 broke the school record for high Baker series.

Damon Helgevold had a good day, rolling games of 211 and 193 for a two-game series of 404. Skylar Johnson finished with a total of 362 and Jacob Redman bowled a 358.

Adam Smith finished with a total of 284 and Matthew Sebek rounded out the team scoring with his series of 278. Geo Smith finished with a 250.

On the girls side, Courtney Clarke led the way with a series of 293 after games of 158 and 135. Bronwyn Miller recorded a score of 280 and LeeAnn Helgevold finished at 274.

Keleah Selsor rolled a two-game series of 269 and Alexxa Blair rounded out the team scoring with her total of 265. Sara Andrew finished the day with a score of 221.

The Indians return to action today at Ottumwa.
