Salem Alley Cats in 5th Place After Day One
Rockford Jefferson and Lockport Township are tied for first place after the first day of the tournament. Salem is in fifth place, which was exactly where Coach Steve Ludwig told Greg Mehochko he wanted his team after day one when the two spoke earlier this week.
“I would like to try and stay in touch with the leaders, at least the top six teams that first day.”
Salem is within striking distance of the top three placers, having averaged a 197 on the first day. Lockport and Rockford are both averaging 205 and third-place Aurora averaged 202 on Friday.
Senior Lindsey Fogliasso is leading Salem at the state tournament with 1,275 pins. Another senior, Amber Kantner, bowled a 1,235 for second on the team. Sophomore Morgan Vanhoutin rolled a 1,219. Senior Tristen McGee sits in fourth place on the team with 1,121 while junior Kayla Harris’ 1,063 are going a long way to help Salem break into the top five.
The State Bowling Tournament resumes today in Rockford.
