SILVERDALE — Klahowya may have ended the regular season on top of the Olympic League, but it was the Olympic Trojans who walked away with the championship at the Olympic League tournament on Jan. 17.

The Trojans took a healthy lead into the baker games, rolling a 776 in game one and a 737 in game three, and held off a furious charge from the Eagles to take the title by 45 pins.

Both Olympic and Klahowya will advance to the district tournament Jan. 26 in Tacoma along with North Mason.

Marissa Nemeth took home the individual championship, knocking down 487 pins over the course of three games, a 162.3 average. She bowled the high game of the day, a 199 in game one. Nemeth’s teammate Madison Bonk finished second with 465.

Klahowya’s top bowler was junior Hannah Catt, who was leading the individual race through two games and finished third with 458 pins, averaging a 152.6 over the three games.

Two Bremerton bowlers will also advance to the district tournament. Meaghan Malone, who finished fifth among all bowlers with 447 pins, and Shen Stewart, who scored a 396 over three games.
