GEHS Blazer Bowling team travel to Baker University

It was another great week in the Blazer bowling world as Monday we competed against 3 of the top teams in the State and Friday we competed in our first Bakers meet in several years. Just a reminder that you can stay up to date with the program in several ways throughout the week. We have a twitter account @GEBlazer-Bowlin as well as our school athletic website at https://trailblazerathletics. org/. You can also get very in-depth stats on any program and meet in the State at https:// www.kshsbowling. com/.

On Monday the Varsity boys faced their hardest meet of the season outside of our league and regional meets and finished 2nd with a solid team effort all around. Evan Slife finished 1st individually with a series score of 682. Without another bowling finishing in the top 5 this was another meet that showed off the depth of the team to still finish in 2nd place. On Friday we had our first Bakers meet and the boys took 2nd in the opening round to earn a bye in the elimination rounds. The boys fought back in the semi final round after losing the first game to make the finals. They came out on fire in the finals and went on to win the tournament.

The boys JV continue to improve as the players get used to the high school bowling atmosphere and adjust to the different bowling alleys. Gaven Bright finished with a team high series of 500 and Jace Bouasandouvong finished 2nd with a 455. On Friday we took all our bowlers so they could experience a Bakers meet and split the JV into two teams that alternated. The boys won the first round of the elimination round before falling to the eventual champions in the semifinals.

The Varsity girls also faced their toughest meet of the season and came out in 3rd place with some good individual performances. Myranda Rogers took second individually with a series score of 616. Lillie Baldwin had her season high game of 161 as did Josie Wilson with a 148. On Friday the girls finished 2nd in the opening round to earn a bye in the elimination round. The girls strung together several good frames in the semis to earn themselves a spot in the finals. While competitive they eventually fell to come in 2nd on the day, a very good finish for the program.

As always thank you for supporting the Blazer bowling program and more importantly these student athletes who put in a lot of time and work throughout the season.
