Tuesday, November 11, 2008

The Marshall County High School bowling team hosted Columbia Academy at the Fun Time Bowling Lanes in Lewisburg on Thursday and came away with a sweep.

The Tigerettes won a close match 15 to 11 to remain unbeaten at 3-0 on the season, while the Tigers (2-1) took a big bite out of the Bulldogs, gouging them 22-5.

Marshall County's Lindsey Fagan led the charge down the lane for the ladies, rolling (134, 166, & 157) for a 457 total. Shelby Pierce was the high roller in the first series with a 182, followed by great game of 189 by Danielle Toseland in the second series to set the Tigerettes up for victory.

Lefty, Trevor Toseland was the high roller for the Tigers in the match, rolling (173, 168, & 198) for a pin total of 539. Anthony Walker was top man for the Tigers in the first series, coming in with a 179, while JJ Ford powered his way to a nice 193 in series number two to set up the blow-out over the Bulldogs.

Robbie Giles, head coach for MCHS said after the match, "The boys rebounded great from a tough loss last week versus Spring Hill. I can't brag enough on how they fought back today."

Chris Fagan, assistant coach in charge of the girls squad was also elated about the big win for the Tigerettes and said, "It always comes down to the players picking up their spares and the girls did a lot of that great today. We still have to get a little better in that area, but this was a big win. I can't remember the last time we were undefeated."

Fun Time Bowling Lanes is the home wood for the MCHS bowling team and is under the new ownership of Mike and Kim Turner. The lanes are sanctioned under the United States Bowling Congress with the local committee that includes Kevin Wunderlin, Bob James, and Nancy Walls.

Fun Time sponsors a youth bowling league every Saturday morning and is looking to expand the league's numbers from the current 24 kids.

"We are trying to build up bowling in Lewisburg and the surrounding towns," said Wunderlin. "We want the youth league to be a feeder program to the high school bowling team and it is another way to keep kids off the street and have a good time."
