Versailles Boys and Girls Bowling Advance to Districts

Brooke Wehrkamp and Michael Davidson
The Southwest District Sectionals took place at Marian Lanes in Huber Heights last week. Wednesday was the boys competition and Thursday was the girls competition. The boys struggled a little bit the first game with some early issues on converting easy spares. Their 903 put them in 10th position. Every team then moved lanes for the second game. They put it together the second game by firing a 1027 to move up to the 4th spot. The third game the guys rolled a respectable 950.

There was now about an hour break so the scores could be tallied and then the teams seeded based on where they were placed after the regular games. “Urbana pretty much had the Sectional Title wrapped up as they totally lit it up during the regular games. The bottom would have to drop out for anyone to beat them,” said Coach Davidson. Versailles ended up rolling 236, 187, 165, 210, 204 and 171 for their Baker Games. They ended up finishing in 4th place behind Urbana, Northwestern and Kenton Ridge.

The Tigers were led by Michael Davidson with a 659. “We definitely did not bring our best today, which is OK. A few of our guys have some hitches in their swing to cause some issues. We will have this fixed and be ready for Districts,” said Davidson. There will be 16 teams competing in the Districts with the top 4 Teams qualifying for the OHSAA State Championship in Columbus.

Thursday was the day for the Lady Tigers. They were ready to defend their Sectional Title from last season after coming off a big win against Coldwater to win the WOHSBC the previous Saturday. The girls were very consistent in all 3 regular games by rolling scores of 907, 942 and 954. “They just kept plugging away. It was a struggle sometimes carrying those corner pins today. Some days are just like that,” stated Coach Phlipot.

The Lady Tigers were within about 60 pins or so going into the 6 Baker Games and were paired up with the #1 qualifier, Greenon. The Tigers got it to within about 30 pins, but could just not put big enough Baker Games to go around Greenon. Urbana came out of nowhere there first baker Game by rolling a 263 to start. The Lady Tigers rolled 161, 201, 162, 168, 168 and 193 to finish in 3rd behind Greenon and Urbana.

The Lady Tigers were led by Brooke Wehrkamp 624 and Megan Monnin with a 600. “Overall, the girls had a good day. However, too many easy spares were missed, especially in the Baker Games. These girls always seem to rise to the occasion, so we will work on some things this week and will be ready to compete for our first District Title on Thursday,” said Coach Davidson.

Districts will be this Thursday, February 20th at Beaver Vu Lanes with a start time of 9 am for the Boys and the Girls. The top 4 teams will advance for the Boys and the top 4 teams will advance for the Girls.
