NAPOLEON – The NWOAL bowling tournament was held on Friday at River City Bowl-A-Way in Napoleon, and the Bulldogs had a good showing.

Lauren Smith added a 380 for Swanton, Rachel Jordan 368, Tonya Timpe 264 in two games, and Haley McMahan 101 in one game.
For the season, Lawson also earned second team all-league honors.
