HS Bowling: WD Hawks Girls And Boys Teams Ready For State

By Jon Swisher-Sports Director:

The West Delaware Girls and Boys Bowling teams will compete in the Co-Ed High School State Bowling tournament this morning.

For the Hawk boys it is their 4th trip in the past 7ears and first time since 2013 when they got 3rd place. Head coach John Chapman talks about his squad’s effort in the qualifier last week and about the frame of mind the group will have to have to compete at State:

 

The Hawks will play against 7 other Class 1A schools. Also in !A from the area, individual qualifier Derek Kuntz of Cascade.

The West Delaware girls are back at state for the 5th time in the last 7 years, their 3rd in a row with their last two being runner-up finishes.

Head coach Ken Boesenberg comments on how proud of his team he is and the mindset they will have at state:

Coach Boesenberg will receive a well deserved honor this morning as he will be the 2017 bowling recipient of the Iowa Girls’ High School Athletic Union’s Golden Plaque of Distinction Award. The IGHSAU’s Golden Plaque of Distinction Award honors the Iowa coach who has demonstrated a successful career while making notable contributions toward school, community and the coaching profession. Boesenberg has been coaching the West Delaware girls bowling team since 2008 the IGHSAU’s sanctioning of bowling, the Hawks are 80-12 in dual meet competition and have made five state tournament appearances. In that span, West Delaware has finished as state runners-up twice while placing third once.  Ken has coached two state champions;  Leah Heim in 2012 and Andrea Salow in 2015. Three more of his bowlers have placed in the top five. Coach Boesenberg talks about the humbling award and gives credit to his many bowlers over the years:

In Class 2A, Western Dubuque made it on the boys side. Independence’s Hunter Shannon qualified as an individual.

Class 1A play begins at 10am at Plaza Lanes in Des Moines with 2A and 3A on Tuesday.
