Mt. Pleasant bowling downs Demons
WASHINGTON — The Mt. Pleasant bowling teams didn’t have their highest scores, but they scored high enough to top Washington in a road meet on Saturday.
The Panther girls won by a score of 2,298-2,174, while the boys’ team downed the Demons by a score of 2,811-1,890.
Maddie Kirchner led the Mt. Pleasant girls with a score of 341 on games of 161 and 180.
She was followed by Tori Roe, who scored 327 on games of 148 and 179, and Chelsea Sammons, who rolled games of 146 and 168 for a total score of 314.
Tasha Glover scored 289 (136, 153), followed by Jacque Gerleman with a 276 (135, 141) and Sara Smith with a 274 (140, 134).
“Melody Lanes is a tough alley to bowl in and it showed in our scores, especially the varsity girls scores,” Coach Troy Mears said. “Maddie Kirchner stepped up and helped lead the varsity girls with a pretty decent series.”
The team upped its season record to 7-1 with the win over Washington, and the boys did the same.
The Panthers were led by Clayton Sammons with a score of 426 on games of 200 and 226.
“Clayton Sammons bowled very well for the varsity boys,” Mears said.
He was followed by Wolfgang Schumacher with a 385 on games of 183 and 202. Markus Morris rolled 214 and 165 for a total of 379, and Brock Palar scored 349 on games of 180 and 169.
Jordan Meyer rolled a 332 (144, 188), and Cameron Sammons rolled a 306 (147, 159).
The Mt. Pleasant JV teams did not have an opponent, as Washington does not have enough bowlers for JV teams.
The Panther girls scored 1,989 and the boys scored 2,507.
Leading the girls’ team was Jennifer McVey with a 317 on games of 141 and 176. She was followed by Emma Overton, 299 (150, 149); Kelsey Wolf, 278 (134, 144); Maddy Long, 253 (141, 112); Madison Stears, 237 (136, 101); and Emily Larson, 222 (112, 110).
For the boys, Russell Heerdt had a team-high 343 on games of 160 and 183. He was followed by Jacob Swailes, 322 (179, 143); Austin Meyer, 312 (158, 156); Jordon Phomsouvandara, 276 (117, 159); Daniel McVey, 253 (119, 134); and Caleb Steinhoff, 239 (136, 103).
“The JV boys seem to really be gelling well together lately and had huge Baker game scores,” Mears said.
Both JV teams remain undefeated at 8-0 on the season.
“We travel to Fairfield next, and the lane conditions will be very similar to Washington, so hopefully we will be able to make the adjustments necessary to improve our scores from this week,” Mears said.
The Panthers will be at Flamingo Lanes in Fairfield Saturday, starting at 1:30 p.m.
