Redskin bowling girls 11-0, roll over Gibsonburg

In action at Star Lanes at the Harbor Thursday, Jan. 22, the Lady Redskin bowlers advanced to 11-0 on the season, 9-0 in NOBC play as they won over Gibsonburg 2631-1925.

Eryn Binder and Reilly Wittman tied for medalist honors with 393 sets. Eryn with games of 204-189 and Reilly with games of 205-188. Jozlyn Seamon rolled games of 179-172 for a 351 set and Sam Stroupe 155-185 for 340. Kassidy Mahler rolled a 151.

“Our girls were very impressive tonight with their scores,” said Coach Bob Black. “Our spare shooting was better and several girls strung strikes. Eryn has improved her arm-swing and is hitting the pocket consistently. Jozlyn has returned to her good bowling. Sam, as usual, is very solid and our best spare shooter. Reilly has found her strike ball again and her scores are improving. We’re getting ready for tournaments.”

The Gibsonburg boys rolled an 847 middle game to defeat the Redskin boys 2366-2164, dropping the Redskins to 0-12 on the season.

“Our boys need to learn how to focus in practice and apply that to competition,” said Coach Black. “There is some talent there and they have improved since the beginning of the season, but they do not have the desire to master things like spare shooting which can lead to victories.”

Cameron Bice led the Redskins again with 151-170 for 321. Kordell Blankenship rolled 169-156 for 325. Alex Camerato added a 158.

Both the Port Clinton and Gibsonburg squads will participate in the Redskin Tournament Saturday at Star Lanes at the Harbor.


Lady Redskin bowlers defeat Chargers

Future SBC bowling rivals met for the first time at Star Lanes at the Harbor in Port Clinton Tuesday and split matches.

The veteran Redskins girls defeated the Lady Chargers 2409-1432. Sam Stroupe led the ‘Skins with games of 169-169 for a 338 set. Eryn Binder rolled 190 for 330 set, Jozlyn Seamon 177 for a 321 set. Kassidy Mahler rolled a 159 games.

The young Redskins and Chargers boy team had an exciting match which wasn’t determined until the last frame with the Chargers prevailing 2332-2324. Cameron Bice led the Redskins with games of 202-201 for a 403 set. Kordell Blankenship rolled 159-178 for a 337 set and Jabour Clark rolled a 146 game.


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.
