Kayla Emmendorfer helped make history on Sunday, January 20th at Richfield Bowl with her Kearsley High School Varsity girls bowling team. The varsity girls were participating in the Flint Metro Conference Team Championship Tournament that was being held at Richfield for the 4th straight year. The day for Kayla started off with a 204 game and then came game #2 on lanes 7-8 and the Kearsley girls were lighting up the scoreboard led by the lead off bowler Kayla Emmendorfer. She proceeded to throw all 12 strikes for a perfect 300 game, the first in the state of Michigan this season in high school bowling and only the 12th ever in high school competition in the state for a girl. Kayla did not let up the last game of qualifying as she ended with a 222 game and a nice 726 actual series. With the 300 game from Kayla the Kearsley girls went on to post a team actual score of 1148 for the 5 bowlers, this is the highest team score for a girls team in the state this season and turns out that this score also ties the highest team score by a girls team ever in the state of Michigan in high school bowling. The same score was posted by Charlotte back in 2011. The five girls on Kearsley who bowled the 2nd game were Kayla Emmendorfer – 300 game, Teagan MacDonald -246 game, Amanda Thompson – 172 game, Becca Iversen – 205 game, and Hannah Ploof – 225 game.  The other record that the Kearsley girls set for the day was they had a 1033 actual the first team game and with the 1148, the 2 game set of 2181 is the new state record for high school bowling for a girls team. The first team game scores were:  Kayla Emmendorfer – 204, Amanda Thompson – 200, Katelynn Maxwell/Haleigh Rybka – 139, Becca Iversen – 225 and Hannah Ploof – 265. Congratulations Kearsley Varsity Girls and Kayla Emmendorfer on your accomplishment!VarsityGirls_1_20_13
