This year marked the 22nd year of the annual fight for the King and Queen Pin against City High at Colonial Lanes. On Feb. 9, West High faced City while also celebrating its last regular meet of the season with Senior Night. During the ceremony, nine seniors were recognized: Jack Dorale, CJ Dunning, Nathan Heenan, Aaron Lawler, Hunter MacDonald, Lily Mosier, Whitney Noeller, Madeline Otis and Samuel Rosenthal.

Later, West (0-9) and City (4-7) girls teams fought for the Queen Pin, which was previously won by West High eight times and City thirteen times. Leading West with a series of 354 between two games was Madeline Otis ’24. Sadly, West’s total of 2272 didn’t reach the total score of City’s 2506. The Queen Pin was received by City for the sixth consecutive year. West finished the season 0-10, City 5-7 and West’s Queen Pin possession 8-14.

West (5-4) and City (6-5) boys teams fought for the King Pin, previously won by West High ten times and City eleven times. Leading West with a series of 455 between two games was Cayden Day ‘23. The West boys varsity team finished with a score of 3126 compared to City’s 3108, enough to end up taking home the King Pin for West. West’s possession of the King Pin stands 11-11 with City, finishing the season for City, 6-6, and West, 6-4. 

You can watch the girls state qualifying meet on Feb. 12 and the boys  state qualifying meet on Feb. 13 at Rose Bowl.
