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.
