Manhattan High’s girls’ and boys’ bowling teams competed at the Centennial League meet Wednesday in Topeka. Final scores weren’t available immediately, however, as Emporia High didn’t bowl that day because of a school closure. Emporia bowled Friday, becoming the final of the nine league teams to post a score.

After Emporia wrapped up, both of Manhattan’s teams placed fourth. The boys’ team combined for a score of 3,152 while the girls’ finished with 2,451.

The highlight of the event for the Indians: Kyle Millett placed first on the boys’ individual leaderboard with a score of 706.

Seaman won the boys’ and girls’ events.

Its boys’ team finished with a score of 3,380, followed by Washburn Rural (3,330) and Topeka West (3,159).

Hayden came in fifth, just behind Manhattan, with a score of 3,045. Emporia (3,045), with Junction City finished (2,964), Topeka High (2,885) and Highland Park (749) taking the last three spots. Highland Park only had two boys’ bowlers available.

Seaman’s girls’ team combined for a score of 3,079, edging runner-up Washburn Rural by 110 pins (2,969). Junction City (2,661) was third, followed by MHS and Emporia (2,375) to round out the top five.
