FOSTORIA – When spares come, so too will wins.
That is what Ross bowling coach Mark Larrick has been telling his Lady Giants.
Wednesday night, Ross picked up the spares. And though they didn’t get the win, the Lady Giants did post a couple season-highs.
Ross’ girls totaled games of 517 and 673 – the latter being the team’s highest game of the season — combined with a Baker Game score of 614, Ross was edged out by Fostoria, 1,848-1,804.
“I harp on them about that, they’re not going to win a match until they make their spares,” Larrick said. “They lost by 40 pins, which is four spares over 15 games – between the individual (games) and the Bakers. The girls are improving. That was their highest team total of the year, too.”
Midori Ayres (128, 173) led Ross with a total of 301, Alyssa Schaffer (93, 145) rolled a 238, Sydney Karn added 226 on games of 95 and 131 while Esmeralda Gutierrez (108, 103) finished with 211.
Ainsley Potter rolled a game of 121 while Kalyn Collins had a 93.
The Lady Giants won their Baker Game, 614-595.
The boys team fell by a total score of 2,212-2,008, rolling games of 601, 683 and a Baker Game of 724.
Brody Abdoo led the way with scores of 158, 189 for 347. Brayden Ebinger (123, 135) and Zach Sowell (116, 135) followed with total scores of 258 and 251, respectively. Alex Menkhoff rolled a 105 and 106 for a total of 211, while Seth Druckenmiller added 118 and Harold Balduff had a 99.
The boys overall record falls to 0-5 for the season while the girls are 0-4. The Ross bowlers return to the lanes Thursday at Bucyrus.
