ROCKFORD -- The Moline girls bowling team missed out on advancing to the second day of competition on Friday, but two of the Maroons bowlers are still going to impact this years state meet.

Moline's Jessica Howell rolled to a 1,362 and sits in second place just 12 pins back of Rockford Jefferson's Emily Malone (1,374) for the Illinois individual state title.

The Maroons' Brooke Lodge isn't far back in 19th place (1,264), and can take home a state medal by finishing in the top 12.

With only 12 teams advancing among the 24 team field at Rockford Cherry Bowl, Moline (5,588) finished in 13th just 29 pins short of the final spot captured by Mt. Prospect (5,617).

A slow start proved costly for Moline, a first game score of 845 put Moline in a hole.

The Maroons were able to adjust and rolled their best game of the day 1,054 in the second game, but the damage had been done.

Lodge had an outstanding start to the day with a three game score of 692, which included a game of 279.

Howell was steady posting a six game average of 227.

"I think this means a lot to the girls," Moline coach Matt Woods said. "The team is really behind them, and I think it says a lot about our team as well. They have both grown mentally, and their talents have gotten a lot better from being pushed in practice everyday."
