The Ankeny bowling teams posted a pair of season-high scores during a non-conference dual meet against Des Moines Hoover on Monday at Game Day Lanes.
The Hawks won the boys’ meet by a score of 2,587 to 2,347. They surpassed their previous high by 140 pins while improving their record to 2-4.
Hoover won the girls’ meet by a score of 1,603 to 1,458. The previous high for the Hawkettes, who dropped to 0-6, was a total of 1,435 in the season opener against Dowling Catholic.
“The first meet back after break was a success,” said Ankeny coach Lane Richtsmeier. “Not just with a win, but with our progress on improving stills. Both teams had their best meet to date, and as a coach I couldn’t be happier. I’m all about setting little goals and hitting them.
“And raising the bar every day,” he added.
Aidan Doruska bowled a season-high 412 series to lead the Hawks. He had a 236 in his second game.

Jackson Roberts rolled a 304 series, Kole Jordan had a season-high 302, and Sam Tigges added a 230.
The Hawks built a 253-pin margin in the individual games. Hoover (1-4) won the bakers round, 873-860, but it wasn’t nearly enough to make up the deficit.

Lynn Cronk had a 249 series, Lilianna Sinclair rolled a season-high 243, and Kali Ogg added a 220.
