Boys Bowlers 2nd in Sectional Preview

14 Teams competed in the Rootstown Sectional Preview tournament on Saturday, with the Rough Rider squad capturing 2nd place. A well-rounded solid effort on the teams part resulted in a trophy for the showcase, as they kept their heads in the game despite a lack of carry. There are times in the sport of bowling when the pins just refuse to fall, and this coach was proud of her teams performance and the manner by which they kept positive and adapted to keep scoring.
Recap: Matthew Richards 205-221-224=650, Carter Troyer 236-185-218=639, Kobe Thigpen 203-222-201=626, Chris LeSueur 227-201-178=606, Tyler Kirby 204-185.
Games: 1017 – 1033 – 1006 = 3056. Baker Games: 159-195-170-222-194-204 = 1144
