Both Grand Haven’s boys and girls varsity bowling teams saw their conference records fall to 1-2 on Wednesday following losses to the Grandville Bulldogs.
The Bucs’ girls had no points to speak of against the ‘Dawgs, as a talented Grandville sqiad completed a sweep, 30-0. The Bulldogs held a 359-275 advantage in the Baker format, and also knocked down 1,672 pins in the regular games to the Bucs’ 1,277.
Gina Hartwell had a solid showing for the Bucs with games of 138 and 141. The high game was turned in by Dominique Sauers in Game 1, as she rolled a 150.
Grand Haven’s boys might have been singing a different tune if not for a horrible start in the Baker format, in which the Bulldogs swept, 10-0. The Bucs fought back with eight points in the regular Game 1 to narrow their deficit, but couldn’t climb all the way back.
“We played well the first half of the second game, but fell short in the second half and lost the match,” said head coach Pat Mitchell.
Kaleb Schmidt scored two points for the Bucs with games of 204 and 224, while players who picked up single points included Keith Reuterdahl with a 188, Jack Clark with a 224, Shamar Stailey with a 226, and Justin White with a 165.
