The Buckeye Valley girls bowling team stayed perfect on the season, improving to 12-0 with Monday’s 1,739-1,695 win over Ridgedale.

The Barons lost the first game 702-649, but found their form after that.

“The girls started off very slow, not adjusting and having a hard time hitting their marks,” BV coach Madonna Wells said. “Then they came alive with a 787 game.”

Morgan Coe led the Barons with games of 221 and 145 for a 366 series. Other BV standouts included Bree Hall, who had games of 139 and 182; and Maya Wills-Durr, who rolled games of 156 and 131.
