fall to Rootstown
Bowlers are wearing Streetsboro Rockets’ gear this season.
Streetsboro has varsity boys and girls bowling teams for the first time in school history.
The teams are led by head coach Frank Diehl.
The boys, who lost a 1,801-1,709 decision to Portage Trail Conference rival Rootstown Nov. 26 at Bill White’s Twin Star Lanes in Kent, have five members on the team. They are seniors Brad Wolfe and Austin Lesak, junior Casey Bruce and freshmen Tyler Fleming and Nick Marlin.
Fleming led the Rockets with games of 172 and 179, respectively. Also faring well for Streetsboro was Wolfe (138-136).
“We are very young and very inexperienced but we plan to head to the lanes to compete and have fun,” Diehl said. “We get better each time we take to the lanes. I think that Kent and Crestwood are the most accomplished teams.”
The girls team features senior Sarah Yonish and sophomores Courtney Schoenbacher, Kerry Sutphin, Becca Fleming, Jessica Roch and Lilly James.
The girls lost a 1,427-1,391 decision to Rootstown. Fleming led the Rockets with scores of 110 and 126, respectively, and Roch (131-102) was next.
“We are very young and inexperienced but the girls are ready to take on every challenge that is put in front of them,” Diehl said. “The team has a great attitude and truly wants to learn how to bowl.”
