Collinsville started slow but finished strong taking second place only 46 pins behind tourney champion O’Fallon at the 20-team tournament.
“This weekend they started off just a little lackluster, like it was just going to be handed to them and that’s a dangerous, dangerous thought,” said Hay. “You have to respect every opponent, every tournament, everything. That was a lesson we learned thankfully but we’ll see this week.”
CHS had two bowlers finish in the top six with Livia Montgomery placing fourth and Laila Jaoko taking sixth.
Montgomery finished 41 pins out of first with an 1163 for the day. She rolled a high game of 243 and also had a 211.
