The Boys Bowling season came to a close on Thursday Feb. 25 as they traveled to the District Tournament in Beavercreek, OH. Only the best of the best get to advance to state as the top 5 of 24 teams will move on in the tournament. Unfortunately, our Cardinals were not one of those 5 teams.
Led for Freshman Myles Wright, the Cardinals rolled a 3,997 total to finish 390 pins from qualifying for State. Wright (’19) finished tied for 40th in the tournament with a 3-game total of 620. Myles was 1 of 6 Freshman to bowl in the District Tournament and he finished with the 2nd highest total among those in his class.
Next up was Senior Nick Poppe who rolled slightly under his season average and finished in 64th with a 3-game total of 594. Following Nick with a 3-game total of 580 was Sophomore Darius Butler who finished with 580 pins, good enough for 71st. Junior Brandon Nuttle chipped in 548 pins for 84th place and Senior Vince Sprague with a 370 2-game total.
It may not have ended up with another trip to State, but 2015-16 was one of the most successful seasons in Boys Bowling history:
* 12-3 overall record, 9-0 in GMC Play
* 1st outright GMC Championship in program history (2nd overall)
* Advanced from Sectionals to Districts
* Got 3 underclassmen significant playing time to lead the program forward
Special Congratulations and Thanks go to our Seniors Nick Poppe, Vince Sprague, and Justin Hiles for their contributions on the lanes during their time in the program. We wish them the best in their future endeavors and hope to see them at Colerain Bowl for many years to come!
