2016 Iowa City West High boys bowling preview

North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– West High bowler Patrick Wood won the Class 3A State Bowling Tournament back in February. Odds are he would put up an equally impressive showing in the 2016-2017 season for Mike Mellecker and the Trojans. However, he’s moved out of town and his days in West High green are over.
But, Mellecker, the 10-year coach for West’s boys and girls bowling teams, is encouraged by the fact he has six returning varsity winners with a lot of match time.
On the flip side, though, he’ll need all six to be in top form on a squad with an even dozen bowlers.
