OWOSSO – The Swartz Creek bowling teams competed in a Baker tournament in Owosso on Sunday, finishing third overall on the boys’ side while the girls’ team also made the cut.

The boys’ team qualified sixth despite being down two bowlers. Junior varsity bowlers stepped up to the plate, though, and helped Swartz Creek defeat Gladwin in its first match before falling to Flushing in its second. The Dragons then defeated Clio in the third-place match to end their day.

On the girls’ side, Swartz Creek made the cut in eighth place with a total pinfall of 1,752. The Lady Dragons were then paired against first-place Kearsley, losing 376-270 to end their tournament run.

On Saturday, the girls’ team defeated Flushing 23-7. Sydney Goupil led the way with games of 266 and 210. Alexis Vanderkuur had a 225, Kim Matus had a game of 198 and Emani Davis rolled a 191. The team recorded its second-highest team scratch game total of 1,000 and its second-highest team scratch series with a 1,887.

The boys’ team rescheduled its match with Flushing because of injury and faced off with the Raiders on Wednesday after press deadlines. Swartz Creek will next compete in a tournament this Sunday at Richfield Bowl. — A.V.
