Port Clinton lady bowlers finish tenth

  • Published in Sports

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."

NPAA to help with Walleye Festival Kids Fishing Derby

“In 1964, I was four years old, and that’s the year my father taught me how to fish”, said local resident and Beacon fishing columnist Julia Davis. “My first rod was a whittled stick that had a line and hook tied to it. It didn’t even have a reel. I would sit on the dock and try to catch bluegills and crappies all day long with meat that I would find in the clams that washed up on the beach. I grew up fishing. I even became Professional Walleye Tournament Angler and fished on some of the most beautiful lakes and rivers, and against some of the best walleye anglers in the country. Now, I am a Charter Captain here on Lake Erie. And, just like that little girl sitting on the dock all day at four years old, I’m still fishing today at 50 years old. I think I will be fishing until the day I die.  Introducing someone new to the sport, and watching them have fun, is what it’s all about for me. I just couldn’t see myself doing anything else.”

When Captain Juls heard about a request for rod and reel donations to help with the children’s fishing tournament at the annual Walleye Festival this spring, she knew immediately what to do.

Davis reached out to Laura Schlachter from Main Street Port Clinton, and explained how the NPAA could possibly help. “Helping kids get involved in fishing is one of the largest goals of the NPAA, and they are usually pretty excited about events like yours”, Juls said. “I think we can make this happen”.
