Sean Black College Bowling Academic All-American

This past weekend Port Clinton graduate Sean Black competed for the Davenport University Men's Bowling team at the USBC Sectional Tournament in Allentown, PA, with an opportunity to advance to Nationals in Reno, NV.  

On Friday Black competed in the singles portion with games of 163-137-226-189-213-170 for a total of 1098 for 6 games, finishing 68 out of 156 total bowlers.  As a team the Panthers finished in seventh place out of 19 teams with a baker game average of 189, missing the top four for nationals by 309 pins. The Panthers will finish their season at the end of March at the NAIA Invitational, a tournament they won in 2011. 

Here were some of Black's thoughts for the weekend: "On Friday I was just a little too nervous for the singles portion of the event.  After the second game I just relaxed and bowled my game and I averaged nearly 200 the last four games, which shows me that I can compete on this level when I just go out and play. Saturday and Sunday for the team portion we got off to a fresh start, being in the cut for most of the day Saturday; but a bad set to end the day took us out of the cut and we could never mentally get refocused until it was too late on Sunday. It is definitely a learning experience and we will use this as motivation to get better as a team in preparation for next year's sectionals. With four freshmen in the starting rotation at any time, the future is definitely bright for our team."

Sean was awarded a certificate as a College Bowling Academic All American, which requires a 3.5 grade point average.

Port Clinton lady bowlers finish tenth

Port Clinton's Lady Redskin Bowlers finished tenth at the OHSAA State Finals in Columbus Saturday. They missed the cut to the top 8 by only 43 pins. Alysia Zoeller earned Second Team All Ohio for bowling a 584 series on games of 186-197-201. 

"Our girls earned valuable experience by competing at State", said Coach Bob Black. "We had the cut in our reach, but too many errant first ball shots and too many missed single pin spares cost us advancing to the Baker Matches. Alysia bowled great all day, with only four open frames, and that's what they all have to do to compete at a higher level next year. Freshman Jozlynn Seamon came in and struck or spared ten straight frames. She will compete for a starting position next season. Reilly Wittman rolled a strong second game, and Sam Stroupe was solid all day."
