The Wilmington High School boys bowling team lost its “grudge” match Tuesday with Hillsboro at Royal Z Lanes.
“Our boys teams cannot seem to finish out strong,” WHS coach Joe Davis said of the “grudge match” between the Indians and the Hurricane. “Assistant coach Josh Fisher addressed this with the team and is making this a priority in the second half of the season.”
The Hurricane lost to the Indians but defeated Chillicothe and are entrenched in second place in the league standings, Davis said.
Hillsboro is in first place in the SCOL, said Davis.
Ryan Hottinger led Wilmington with games of 235 and 188 (423 series). Sawyer Kratzer had games of 202 and 204 (406 series) while Tristan Reiley had a 394 series with a 215 game.
Wilmington will travel to Chillicothe Friday to face the Cavaliers and Clinton-Massie. The match against Chillicothe will count in the SCOL standings while the match against Massie will not, according to Davis. Massie and Chillicothe will bowl against each other in a SCOL match.
The Hurricane and Falcons are scheduled to bowl each other at Royal Z Lanes later this month for a match that counts in the SCOL standings.
