Alysia Zoeller 13th at state bowling competition

Port Clinton senior bowler Alysia Zoeller made her last high school competition and finished 13th at the OHSAA State Individual Bowling Tournament in Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl in Columbus on Saturday, March 7.


Zoeller rolled games of 188-191-197 for a 576 series to earn Honorable Mention All Ohio honors.


“Alysia has had an outstanding career,” said Coach Bob Black. “She has rewritten the school record book this season and has been our leading scorer for all four years of her career. Today she bowled very well but couldn’t put enough strikes together to earn first or second team honors. She only had four open frames and a clean (no opens) second game. She is certainly deserving of her honors.”


Lady Redskin bowlers finish season undefeated

Port Clinton’s Lady Redskin bowlers completed an undefeated regular season (18-0, 12-0 in NOBC) by defeating Woodmore at Tri County Bowl Monday 2504-2116.

“They did it!” said Coach Bob Black. “I’m very happy for them and glad now that we can concentrate on districts and hopefully state. This is a tremendous achievement to go undefeated because ours is a short format and a few frames and breaks either way can change a win into a loss. Now we have to recharge, touch up some areas and get excited as a team for districts.”

Reilly Wittman led the Lady Redskins with games of 205-192 for a 397 series. Jozlyn Seamon added 159-189 for 348. Eryn Binder 140-204 for 344, Sam Stroupe 148-155 and Alysia Zoeller 158-142 for 300. Other team members are Katelyn Chapman, Kassidy Mahler, Morgan Wojciechowski and Jordan Gresh.

The Woodmore boys defeated the Redskins 2650-2436.

Kordell Blankenship led the Redskins with 192-187 for 379, senior captain Shelby Radloff 175-159 for 334, Nathan Stubblefield 176-146 for 322, Alex Camerato 160-157 for 317, Trenton Williams 147 and Blaise Hoffman 140.

“I remember a total of 2054 our second match,” said Coach Mike Wittman. “These players have worked and improved so much since then with 2500s and a couple of 2600s recently. They need more commitment on consistency and spares. With off season work they could be pretty competitive next year.
