It was a productive night for both Marshall County bowling teams, as the Tigerettes defeated the Tullahoma Lady Wildcats 21-6 at Fun Time Bowling in Lewisburg on Monday to run their record to 2-1, while the Tigers picked up their first win of the season with a 23-4 triumph over the Wildcats.

"Coming off a loss last week, I thought we rebounded pretty well," said Marshall County coach Robby Giles. "We've got a lot of new players on both teams and we're showing improvement every week."

Playing three matches with six bowlers per team, the Tigerettes won 12 of the 18 individual games and received two points at the end of each match for having the highest pin total. MCHS then collected another three points at the end of the contest for having the highest combined pin total for all three matches.

In the boys contest, the Tigers won 14 of the 18 individual games and received all six bonus points for having the highest score at the end of each match. Marshall County was then awarded another three points for having the highest combined pin total at the end of the contest.
