It’s official. The Grand Haven boys and girls bowling teams have both captured O-K Red Conference championships, after Monday’s competition at Starlite Lanes.

Neither team was in any real jeopardy of losing the conference after winning preseason and regular season play.

The girls entered the postseason with an undefeated conference record, giving them enough points that they didn’t even need to show up on Monday.

Grand Haven, who was without starter Autumn Ray, finished third at the competition.

Kaleigh Batka led the team with her personal-high game of 213, which she followed up with a solid 159.

Breanna Olthof and Becca Hatinger also turned in strong performances.

The Grand Haven boys finished second on Monday, but, like the girls, finished first overall on the season.

The Buc boys struggled with their Baker games for the better part of the season, but their regular game scores averaged above 1000 for the five players.

A.J. Perrier led Grand Haven on Monday, throwing an impressive 279 in the first regular game, before following with a 204.

Jimmy Mitchell, Logan Batka, and Brennan Batka also performed well.

Both squads will now prepare for regional competition next week.
