HCHS bowlers in Action

Two weeks ago, the Harrison County bowling team split a match with Clark County, with the Fillies winning and the Breds losing, at Forest Park Lanes in Winchester.

The Fillies won five of seven possible points in the match, winning two of four in the individual matches, both Baker games and one point for overall pin fall count. Ashley Hatfield led the way for the Fillies with games of 203 and 164. Layken Switzer had a 172 in her first game and Amanda Gaunce finished with 180 and 184.

The Breds didn’t fare as well in their match with Clark County, losing 6-1. Harrison County managed a 176-172 win in the second Baker game, while losing three other games by narrow margins. They lost three of their first four games by scores of 558-548, 549-547 and 520-517. Justin Edens led the Breds with games of 204 and 211. Nick Marcum rolled 164 and 196, James Snapp had a 189 and Justin Fryman had a 181.

On Sunday, Harrison County hosted Scott County at Galactic Alley. The visiting Cardinals bested both home teams, winning the girls match 4-3 and the boys match 5-2.

Scott County converted on five straight strikes in the decisive second Baker game to secure the overall victory in the girls matches. Switzer, Hatfield and Gaunce again led the way for the Harrison County girls.

In the boys match, Michael Withrow and Zach Schneider both rolled 254 for Harrison County, but it wasn’t enough as Scott County split two of four individual matches, swept the two Baker games and won the overall pin fall, 2,882-2,666.
