Girls and Boys Bowling
The varsity girls bowling team of the ‘19-’20 season consisted of eight girls, seniors Tori Taylor, Raymie Shields and Grace Parsons, junior Sidney Brisson and sophomores Haven Yothers, Eve Wicks, Lauren Berend and Lauryn Deck.
The girls started out their season with a loss against Westerville Central (2,098-1,514) followed by a loss against Delaware Hayes (1,831-1,606), making the girls start to lose their faith for the season. The girls decided they didn’t want to let that happen so they then won their next six matches in a row against Grandview Heights (1,524-1,556), Olentangy Berlin (1,613-1,655), Big Walnut (1,521-1,873), Westerville South (1,767-1,912), Marysville (1,379-1,510) and Olentangy Liberty (946-1,631). They then lost against Olentangy (2,114-1,656) and then had a win against New Albany (1,664-1,847) followed by two more losses against Lexington (1,857-1,779) and Teays Valley (1,758-1,242). The Pioneers last match of the season was a quad match where all of the Olentangy High Schools played against each other. For the girls, Olentangy got first place with 2,220, followed by Orange with 1,830, then Berlin with 1,429 and finally Liberty with 607. The girls finished their season 9-6.
The girls then started their post season at sectionals in which 48 teams competed and they had to finish in the top 16 to advance to districts. After five people bowled three individual games and six baker games took place they had a total of 2,789 and placed 15th. At districts, 16 teams competed and they had to be in the top three to advance to states. The same format was bowled as sectionals where five people bowled three individual games followed by six bakers where the pioneers had a total of 2,525 placing 15th and ending their season.
