RED OAK — The Creston/Orient-Macksburg girls bowling team finished second here Tuesday at the Red Oak Tournament, finishing behind the host Tigers.
The Panther girls sat in third place after round one, trailing Red Oak and Harlan. The Panthers trailed Harlan by 27 pins after the first round.
But, Creston came up with a score of 775 in the Baker Rotation to finish with a total team score of 2302, good enough for second behind Red Oak’s 2519. Harlan finished third with 2247.
“The girls all did very well today,” head coach Ron Pendegraft said. “Either in round one or round two, they all came through when we needed it. I was most pleased with how well they did during Bakers, scoring their highest Baker score so far this season.”
Devon Eddy led the Panthers, rolling games of 157 and 218 for a total score of 375, just 10 pins off the high score of the day for all girls. Madison Hance also went over 300, as she finished with a score of 310.
Ashley Knipfer rolled a score of 295 and Jenna Hayes was close behind at 291. Taylor Suiter rounded out the team scoring with her total of 256, while Aly Downey finished with a score of 235.
Meanwhile, the Panther boys finished fifth out of six teams in the tournament. Creston/O-M was fifth after round one and stayed in that position throughout the Baker Rotation.
“Boys scores were not what we had hoped for,” Pendegraft said. “Kind of in a strange place right now. The bad news is we just don’t seem to be able to visualize the lanes correctly. The good news is we have plenty of time to figure it out and I have all the confidence in them that they soon will.”
Darin Hatfield led the Panthers with games of 141 and 183 for a total two-game score of 324. Brett Cheers bowled well, recording a score of 321. Chantz Davidson was next with a two-game of 317.
Reece Kramer finished with a total score of 242, while TJ Patterson rounded out the team scoring with a score of 240. Sebastian Peterson finished with a total of 226.
