History was made history Tuesday afternoon at the Class 2A boys District bowling meet. Kolby Melsha ’15, with a score of 279 pins and a second place finish at the meet individually, became the first ever City High bowler to qualify for the state meet which will take place on February 25 in Des Moines.

The rest of the boys combined for a total of 2,930 pins. This score placed them in 4th at the competition and was not enough to qualify the team as a whole for the state meet. The girls also placed 4th with a score of 2,363. No girls bowlers individually qualified for the state meet.

The boys finished behind Clinton, West and Muscatine on Tuesday and ahead of Burlington. The girls fell to Muscatine, Clinton and West as well, and defeated Burlington by 570 pins. These losses at the District meet ended both the boys’ (3-8) and the girls’ (2-8) season.
