Last week in Laker sports was a busy one for our athletes. The Boys Basketball team had two games, the Girls Basketball team had three games, the Bowling team had a match Last Tuesday, and the Swim team had two meets.
On Tuesday the Laker Bowling team traveled to the Danville Bowlarama for the final round of the Tuesday Night Tournament Series. Our Lady Lakers had an impressive night as they entered the night as the 7th seed in the double-elimination bracket. In the first round they faced Boyle Co. and lost their first 2 games to get off to a slow start. In the next round they faced West Jessamine and won 2 games to 1 to move on and take on East Jessamine. They won the first two games to advance to a rematch with Boyle Co. Our Lady Lakers lost the first game but fought back to win the next two games to advance to the semi-final round to face Corbin where they were defeated in the first 2 games to finish in 3rd place for the tournament.
