The Redskin boys bowlers struggled but hung on long enough to earn their sixth consecutive trip to the OHSAA NW District Bowling Tournament at Interstate Lanes in Rossford next Friday. Bowling begins at 5 p.m.
PC ended up seventh out of 17 teams advancing with a 3,569 score for three team games and six Baker games.
Senior Jonny Newton led the 'Skins with games of 195-1,789-190 for a 563 series. Sean Black chipped in with 191=530, David Wilburn 190=525, and Darryl Trent 201=512.
Other team members are Jon Koch, Brock Rider, Nathan Van Hoose, Jacob Reed and Sam Miller.
“We certainly didn't bowl our best, although we did roll the fourth highest team game of the tournament with 917,” said Coach Bob Black. “Our Baker games were fair but we started the third game with seven consecutive strikes and ended with a 235. That gave us enough to slide ahead of Sandusky by 40 pins. While we struggled at times, our players never quit, worked hard and were rewarded. We'll work hard in practice this week and try to earn a trip to Columbus for the state finals.”
