The Boone Central Bowling Club made their pin counts count Saturday.
Led by individual champions Brody Kelly and Nathan Hemmer, the Cardinal boys won the C3 District title at Ravenna Sports Bowl and the BC girls finished runner-up, with four team members joining the boys as qualifiers for the Nebraska High School Bowling Federation state tournament.
Boone Central’s boys rolled team games of 551, 601, 514 for a 1,666 total. In the Baker series, the Cards posted scores of 126, 127, 164, 116, 175 to finish with an overall pin score of 2,374. That was 24 pins ahead of runner-up Ravenna, the defending NHSBF Class C state champion. Chadron finished third.
The Lady Cardinals put together opening games of 480, 541, 487 for a 1,508 total, which led Chadron by one pin. Boone Central’s Baker scores of 87, 101, 111, 131, 118 fell short, however, as Chadron rallied to take the district championship 2,082-2,056.
