Individually, Patrick Dotson had 342 (181, 161) and Grant Wisecup finished with a 175 game.

On the girls side, the individual two-game series of 1,346 was a season best for East Clinton. Coach Joe Davis said the Lady Astros have not eclipsed 1,300 this season prior to Monday.

Josie Runk had the high game of 157 and a 283 series. Jestiny Hughes posted a personal best series of 284. Tessa Bosier had two 138 games while Austin Morgan had 153 and 185 for a 338 series. The 185 is a PR for Morgan.
