Girls bowling in the area has seen a lot of success, particularly Waubonsie Valley, but more recently the Metea Valley Mustangs. We review in our Fast Facts, presented by BMO Harris Bank.

Sadly, with no state series in girls bowling, we won’t truly know how this Metea Valley team stacks up against its predecessors – or any other historic team from our area, and there have been quite a few. With that in mind, let’s review our area bowling in this Fast Facts, presented by BMO Harris Bank.

The local girls bowling scene is still fairly early on in its history, but it’s packed with winners. Since Waubonsie Valley first finished 8th in state in 2006, the program has set the benchmark for teams across Illinois.

The Warriors nearly topped the charts two years after their first appearance at the big meet – winding up 3rd in 2008 behind the consistent efforts of Sarah O’Brien, who finished 12th overall.

Waubonsie returned to the top three in 2012 with another third place finish. This time, the season previews a remarkable run yet to come for the Warriors. 2012 is also the first time a Mustang makes their presence felt on the state stage – with freshman Jordan Newham qualifying for state.
