By Becky Walz,

Decorah’s Jordan Sims and Brock Christensen have been named to the Class 2A East District first and second teams by the IGCA and Iowa High School Bowling Coaches Associations. In addition, head coach Keith Bruening received Coach of the Year honors.
Sims, a junior, leads the Vikings with a high series of 533 and high game of 279 this season to earn a first-team nod, averaging 215.67 pins per outing.
Earning a second team designation, Christensen finished the season with a 206.71 per game average with a high game of 257 and high series of 479.
Having put together the bowling program at Decorah eight seasons ago, Coach K. Bruening has had 15 total state qualifiers, with two punching tickets to state twice in their careers. At the conclusion of the 2022-23 season, both the girls and boys teams competed at state with the boys the Class 2A runners-up and girls finishing eighth. This season, both squads once again qualified.
