High School Bowling Report: Season concludes, but excitement for next season already looms

The OHSAA bowling season wrapped up this weekend with the Division I state tournament at H.P. Lanes in Columbus.

It was an exciting season for Portage County teams, earning success at the sectional and district tournaments, with the Rootstown varsity girls, along with Rootstown’s Justin Miller and Garfield’s Sierra Foy qualifying for the state tournament.

The promise of next season is bright for these teams.

Foy is a freshman, Miller is a junior and the Rovers’ girls made their first team trip to Columbus with the prospects bright to start a tradition.



The Ohio High School Bowling website has tournaments available for youth bowlers including:

March 23: 7th-10th Grade Singles at H.P. Lanes, Columbus.

March 24: 11th-12th Grade Singles at H.P. Lanes, Columbus.

April 27: 7th-12th Grade Doubles at Wayne Webb’s Bowl, Columbus.

Registration forms are available at ohsb.org



For Portage County bowlers, the Portage County USBC will host the annual youth tournament on April 2, beginning at 9 a.m. at Sky Lanes.

Registration forms are available at area lanes and online on the Portage County USBC Facebook page.



Coaches and players: Thank you for an outstanding season.

It is always a privilege to follow the Portage County athletes as they compete in their conferences and in the postseason tournaments.

The competition has been remarkable in Portage County, with honor scores and individual accomplishments, as well as the Field Falcons becoming the newest school to add the sport for their high-school athletes.

Thanks to the Rover Sectional Preview Tournament that is hosted by Spins Bowl in Kent each season, bowling fans have the opportunity to see some of the best teams in the state compete, including Rootstown (girls finished fourth in the state and an individual from the boys team qualifying), Boardman (girls Division I state champion), Northfield (girls Division I final bracket), Fairport Harbor Harding (girls Division II state team qualifier), Springfield boys and girls (Division II state tournament individual qualifiers) and Coventry (boys Division II state runner-up).

Handling coverage for Portage Sports is a pleasure with the cooperation of coaches and talking to athletes.

I am already looking forward to next season.
