split matches

VERSAILLES — The Versailles boys and girls bowling teams split matches at McBo’s Lanes recently.

Versailles will bowl Minster at Fort Recovery on Saturday.

BOYS

The boys fell in a close match with Minster 2,703-2,653.

The boys bowled consistently well throughout the whole match which added up to their highest overall score so far this year but it just was not enough for the win. Individual scores included Sam Bensman (225, 195), Brandon Bradley (201, 171), Quayd Pearson (188, 148), Luke Shellhaas (163, 159), Bretton Cheadle (147), and Tyler Gehret (132). The Tigers were down 48 pins heading into the Baker games and knew they needed to stay focused and positive.

The Baker scores: 149, 164, 252, 149, 210.

“The boys have started to mesh better as a team,” Versailles coach Travis Philipot said. ” They’ve used their hard work in practice to improve on fundamentals and consistency. The goal is for continued improvement as the season progresses and we look forward to the tournament.”

GIRLS

The Versailles girls defeated Coldwater 2,661-2,495.

They prepared throughout the week in practice and understood they needed focus against a tough opponent.

“We started the match leaving some opens and I told the girls we really needed to bowl clean,” Phlipot said.

Individual scores: Haddi Treon (167, 213), Morgan Heitkamp (181, 180), Morgan Barlage (172, 168), Makenzie Berning (161). Lindsey Cheadle (158) then combined with Berninge (165) and Jena Mangen (178).

“Lindsey (Cheadle) brought fire when she finished the second game with Makenzie and this was a turning point for the momentum of the match,” Phlipot said. “Bowling is a sport that requires all team members to be ready because each teammate may be on fire and pins will fall at different times. I tell the girls they always need to be ready because you just don’t know when you can step in and make the change. Lindsey did this for us today.”

Versailles Baker scores were 172, 238, 113, 204 snf 191.
