Port Clinton's High School Bowlers treated spectators to outstanding scoring at Star Lanes at the Harbor in Port Clinton Monday. The Lady Redskins missed setting a new school scoring record with their 2538 series, missing by 39 pins. They rolled team games of 781 and 868 and added 889 in Baker.
The Boys bounced back from a subpar performance Saturday with games of 978 and 976 and added 1106 in Baker for their 3060. They were, however, bested by the Eastwood boys who rolled a 3117 in an exciting match.
The Lady 'Skins, crowned Northern Ohio Bowling Conference Tournament Champions Saturday at Rossford, were led by Eryn Binder with a career best series of 370 on games of 172 and 198. Samantha Stroupe rolled games of 178 and 171 for 349, Alysia Zoeller rolled 151 and 193 for 344, and Reilly Wittman posted scores of 160 and 157 for 317 as the girls improved to 9-0 on the season, 7-0 in the Conference.
Coach Bob Black was very happy,"They really rallied Saturday, and today they all really bowled great. They are starting to understand how to fill frames (with a strike or spare) and how to relate what they see to me so we can make adjustments. I'm very proud of them, and they will continue to get better as we do not have any seniors on the squad. Eryn has really worked hard the last week and the results are showing. Sam has been very good all year.”
The Boys were led by Dave Wilburn, who rolled games of 259 and 212 for a 471 series. Darryl Trent added 268 and 182 for 450, and Jacob Reed bowled his career best 419 series on games of 176 and 243. Caleb Conrad rolled a 209.
"The guys have struggled most of the season but Friday and tonight shows what they can do when they get it together,” said Coach Black. “If they keep this up they will enjoy a successful tournament run. No one tries harder than Jacob Reed and I am very proud of him for his scores tonight. Dave Wilburn is finally bowling like we thought he could for the past several years, and Darryl remains very good.
The Redskin Bowlers travel to Rossford Tuesday, Tiffin Thursday and are at home to Woodmore Friday.
