Prep Bowling: GH boys bounce back, beat Hudsonville

Entering Monday's prep bowling action, there were three teams tied atop the standings in the O-K Red Conference. Grand Haven took care of one of those teams with a 19-11 win over Hudsonville at Starlite Lanes in Grand Haven. The Bucs still have one more showdown to go, as they'll face fellow first-place squad Grandville on Wednesday. Like it had in several matches this season, Grand Haven started slow in the baker format against the Eagles, falling behind 8-2 due to Hudsonville totaling 405 pins to the Bucs' 349.

Grand Haven came roaring back in match play, however, thanks to a stellar effort turned in by senior John Morehouse. He rolled games of 233 and 266, which scored two of the Bucs’ 17 points. Nate Hix also scored two points by rolling games of 181 and 255, as did Justin White with his scores of 229 and 195.

Nick Laird also earned a point in Game 1 with a 193 game.

On Saturday, Grand Haven’s top “Gold” team finished third at the Reeths-Puffer Invite, while the Bucs’ “Blue” team and varsity girls team placed 13th.

Grand Haven’s girls faced the difficult task of trying to hand Hudsonville its first loss on Monday, but failed to do so in its 28-2 loss. The Bucs were blanked in the baker format but earned points from Dominique Sauers’ 125 game in match play, as well as a point from Sam McKinnon’s 145 effort.


Both Spring Lake’s boys and girls varsity bowling teams were handed losses by Orchard View on Monday.

The Lakers’ lineup of Seth Kriger, Symon Schank, Dan Zwart, Josh Dixon and TJ Kriger earned 10 points during the baker format, but were shut out in match play in their 20-10 final.

The Lakers’ girls lost by a larger deficit, dropping a 27.5-2.5 decision.

Spring Lake’s points came in match play, as Kayce Goll earned 1.5 points with her win with a 120 game and tie with a 142 score. Gretta Nyboer also scored a point with her 141 game. 

The Lakers bowled Baker games of 87 and 109.
