SANFORD — With only three girls available to compete in a Jack Pine Conference match against Gladwin, one of the better teams in the league, at the Northwood Lanes in Sanford made things difficult for the Roscommon Bucks last Wednesday.
Gladwin has a veteran group of established bowlers, and it showed. In the first two games of baker, Gladwin rolled to 173-81 and 145-59 wins.
“The girls did their best in each of those games, but with four frames of zero’s it’s not an easy task,” said Roscommon coach David Osim.
In the team competition and match play, the Bucks lost both games, 781-325 and 789-316. Notable scores for the girls were junior Katie Peterson with games of 128-133, freshman Amelia Klosowski with games of 125-102 and senior Teresa Beebe with games of 72-81.
Roscommon’s boys ran into a red-hot Gladwin team that took both games of baker, 241-127 and 208-131. In the team competition, the Bucks bowled well but couldn’t keep up with Gladwin, losing both games, 917-698 and 896-665.
Boys take one game of match play
The boys were able to take one game of match play, as sophomore Hunter Prieshorn won his first game, 194-160. Second high was sophomore Brady Briggs with games of 182-14, while freshman Henry Tussey rolled a 150 in the second game.
Also, sophomore Austin Lytle had games of 116-107, freshman Trever Streeter rolled a 111 game, freshman Kamaron Leach had a 95 game and Ian Chen rolled a 99 in his second game.
“The boys didn’t bowl bad, but Gladwin is just that good,” Osim said. “Hunter had his highest game so far with a 194, and it’s great to see him back to his old form, with Brady starting to click as well as Austin.
“Having an underclassmen team with no seniors and basically freshmen and sophomores, they are getting better and learning a lot as they take some lumps now. I have the optimism in these boys and girls teams that in a year or two they will be getting a lot more wins.”
