This week’s Republic-Times Athlete of the Week is Dupo High School bowler Courtney Argus. The sophomore posted a six-game score of 1,459 at the Cahokia Regional last weekend to easily take top honors and advance to Saturday’s sectional at St. Clair Bowl in O’Fallon. Argus bowled a 298 in her final game and finished with a 243 average on the day.
Her regional effort was just six pins behind the top score in the entire state on Feb. 7.
“Pretty amazing,” Dupo head bowling coach Leonard Aldridge said. “She has been my best bowler all year.”
