Lake City had yet another strong showing at the adapted bowling state tournament.

The team of sophomore Amber Schones, sophomore Drew Morgan, sophomore Kayla Holmstadt and freshman Megan Keller placed third in the cognitively impaired division.

Keller and Morgan led the way with a two-game grand total of 445 on May 15 at Brunswick Zone in Eden Prairie, Minn. Holmstadt finished with a 430 while Schones added a 407.

The Tigers finished with a team total of 1727. North/Tartan came in first with a 1796.

Schones also placed sixth in the girls' CI singles competition. She bowled a two-game grand total of 460.

Lake City has been a powerhouse in adapted bowling since the Minnesota State High School League sanctioned the sport in 2000.

The Tigers have won four team titles (2000, 2002, 2003 and 2005) and four individual titles (Jeremy Plank, 2001; Erin Hebert, 2000 and 2001; Danielle Krusmark, 2008) in the CI division (previously the MH division). Both are state records.
