Last Saturday afternoon, the girls bowling team competed at Sectionals for the chance to advance to Districts. The teams that take the top four places will go on to play for the contingent of bowling at the state tournament. The team started off the day by rolling a series of 739 to put them in third place. The second game for the Tigers was a total of 740 pins. However, Liberty Center dropped down to fourth due to how well the other teams performed that game. For the final regular game, the girls struggled, rolling just 179 pins. The six bakers helped the ladies to hold their position in fourth place. The team had a great first game, shooting over 200 pins. The remaining baker games consisted of average scores (in the 150’s-180’s) keeping the Tigers consistent.

When all the bowling had been completed, Randy, the owner of the bowling alley, read off the standings. Taking first place was Wauseon, second: Bryan, Third: Tinora, and fourth: Liberty Center. Wauseon put up a fight for first, taking the final lead by just two pins knocking the league champions, Bryan, down to second place. Tinora, a team that has improved greatly over the season was led by Quinn Slattman who took first individually with a series of 628. Helping Liberty Center to seal fourth place was Jill Clapp with a game of 205 and Lillian McLaughlin with 192. These four teams will advance to the Districts on Thursday, February 22, at Interstate Lanes in Rossford. Come support your fellow classmates this week. Good luck girls!

A huge shout out goes to Lillian McLaughlin for bowling a perfect game at practice on Thursday February 15! Nice bowling Lilly! Way to roll em’ and bowl em’!
