In their first few seasons of high school bowling, the Vinton-Shellsburg teams have often faced their toughest competition from West Delaware. That trend continued on Friday, as the bowlers competed against WD. The varsity girls won, but the boys lost to WD, despite achieving their highest team score of the season’
