Eagle rollers have best three-game set all season at TVC Tournament
A good day of practice led to a solid competitive day of bowling for the Frankenmuth varsity boys’ team last Friday afternoon.
The Eagle rollers traveled to Alma’s 300 Bowl to compete in the overall, 19-school Tri-Valley Conference Tournament. There were also 120 boys competing in the singles portion of the tourney.
“We worked very hard in practice on Wednesday and we carried that right into the tourney on Friday,” FHS Coach Ron Krueger said. “This was the best three-game set we put together all season.”
FHS finished in 17th place but the team was just one pin from 16th place, 10 pins from 15th place and were right in the mix with a lot of the teams until the end, Krueger pointed out.
Shane Harrington paced the Eagles with a 608 series, with high games of 219 and 206. Harrington finished 20th overall out of the 120 competitors.
Hunter Duehring tossed a 538 series, including a game of 224. Krueger said Mike Counts also bowled his best games of the season.
𠇊ll of the boys bowled great and made contributions through the tough, three-game set. I was extremely happy with our effort and we are going to try to carry this momentum into the regional championships next Friday and Saturday at Candlelite Bowl,” Krueger said.
The team action will take place Friday at 10am and the singles play is set for 9am Saturday.
