The Waukon bowling teams wrapped up the home portion of their schedules with a Friday, January 19 hosting of Oelwein. The end result of that final home match-up wasn’t much of a fond farewell to that home venue for the season, as the Indian girls fell by a score of 2204-1995 and the Waukon boys allowed just a four-pin opening round deficit to get away to a 2527-2464 defeat.

The Waukon girls fell victim to an Oelwein team that had all six of its players bowl well over a 200 series, while the Indians managed just half of that feat to trail by an early 1469-1226 margin. Each team had just one player roll a 300 series to lead their respective squads, Oelwein sophomore Brielle Belden rolling an event-high 321 series and junior Emma Roe leading the Indian effort with a 305 series comprised of consistent game totals of 152 and 153.
