The Port Clinton Redskin Bowlers opened their season at Tri County Bowl in Woodville Monday and split matches with Woodmore. The Lady Redskins rolled team games of 769 and 818 and added 770 in Baker for a 2357 total to the Woodmore girls’ 2003.
Alysia Zoeller rolled 201-170 for a 371 series, Samantha Stroupe 171-184 for 355 and Reilly Wittman 168-173 for 341. Kassidy Mahler added a 165 game. Emily Paul led Woodmore with 212-150 for a 362 series. Courtney Burner added 148 for 280 and Elissa Knipp 139 for 273.
Coach Bob Black said, “For our first match our girls did very well. We need to improve our spare shooting, but we were able to get all 8 girls playing time. If we can continue to improve from this match, we should be a very competitive team this season.”
The Woodmore boys outlasted the Redskins in a low scoring match 2632-2524. Freshman Kordell Blankenship led PC with 230-124 for a 354 series, Caleb Conrad rolled 186 = 333, Darryl Trent 157-148=305, Dave Wilburn 146-142=288 and Freshman Cameron Bice rolled a 210.
Tyler Crump led Woodmore with 201-221 for a 425 series and Austin Wills 226-158 for 384.
Coach Black said “Hopefully this is our worst performance of the year. We did not perform anywhere near our potential. Our 2 freshman led us in their first varsity match. We need more effort and focus in practice or this could be a long season.”
Port Clinton’s JV boys won 1798-1606.
