Port Clinton girls 9-0 in bowling

The Port Clinton Lady Redskin bowlers advanced to 8-0 in Northern Ohio Bowling Conference action at Heritage Recreation Center in Tiffin on Saturday, 9-0 overall.

The Lady Skins rolled a 2350 score to the Lady Tornadoes 1762.

Reilly Wittman led the Redskins with 187-209 for a 396 set. Eryn Binder continued her success bowling 172-159 for 331. Sam Stroupe rolled 166, Kassidy Mahler a 166 and Jozlyn Seamon a 158.

“We took a step back with our scores and focus today, especially in baker,” said Coach Bob Black. “We had a big rivalry match Thursday, an outstanding performance on a difficult playing condition yesterday and were sort of flat today. With tournaments coming, we cannot allow ourselves to lose focus during competition. Reilly has recovered and is bowling well again.”

The Tornado Boys defeated the Redskins by a 2478-2292 count. Kordell Blankenship rolled 162-181 to lead the Redskins with 343. Shelby Radloff rolled 183 for a 315 set. Blaise Hoffman 177 for 314 and Alex Camerato 150-153 for 303. Cameron Bice had a 158 game.

“The boys also slipped today,” said Coach Black. “Being young and inexperienced, they have to learn how to bring their best effort every time they bowl, practice or compete. Hanging their heads and wishing doesn’t get it done, consistent shot-making does. Shelby Radloff has been a surprise, his average 155 is up almost 40 pins from last year.”

The Redskins host Edison at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Star Lanes at the Harbor. Thursday they host Gibsonburg at 4 p.m. Saturday, January 24, the Redskins Tournament will take place at 9 a.m. There will be a full field of 48 high school teams competing in the tournament.

Redskin bowlers split matches with Eastwood; girls set another record

Port Clinton hosted Eastwood at Star Lanes at the Harbor in Port Clinton Tuesday and the teams split matches.

The Lady Redskins, undefeated in 7 matches, and 5-0 in the Northern Ohio Bowling Conference, set another school record with a 5 game baker score of 969, breaking the old mark of 948.

The Lady ‘Skins totaled 2586 to the Eagles (3-3) 2382.

Alysia Zoeller led Port Clinton with games of 203-182. Jozlynn Seamon 202-134, Eryn Binder 164-162 and Sam Stroupe 146-165. Other team members are Reilly Wittman, Katelyn Chapman, Kassidy Mahler, Morgan Wojchiechowski and Jordan Gresh.

“Our girls keep making a good effort at improving as the season goes along,” said Coach Bob Black. “We continue to work on arm-swing, releases and especially focus on each shot. Team average is around 850 and each player has room for improvement. I think we’re ready for the conference tournament this weekend.”

Eastwood improved to 5-1 in conference play with a 2799-2497 win over the Redskins (0-7, 0-5).

Cameron Bice led the Redskins with 178-238 and Kordell Blankenship 205-205. Shelby Radloff a 180 and Alex Camerato a 148.

“The boys are improving. This was their highest total of the season, after starting out with a 2034,” said Coach Black. “Cameron and Kordell stepped up with their best scores and we’ve been waiting for that to happen. We are young and inexperienced (4 sophomores, 1 freshman) and sometimes it takes a while for them to understand what we coach and they buy in. Shelby has been a steadying influence on them and has improved over 30 pins from last year.”

The NOBC Tournament is at Tri County Bowl in Woodville Friday with girls teams competing at 5 p.m. and the boys teams bowl Saturday at 1 p.m.
