Versailles Lady Bowlers Suffer First Loss

It was a tough week for the Lady Tigers as they rolled against the Coldwater Cavs at Olympic Lanes in Van Wert. Nerves affected the girls initially but they all came together and gave Coldwater a challenge. The Tigers were ahead 69 pins heading into the five baker games. The first game was a victory for the Tigers 906 to 854. Leading the way for the Tigers in the first game were Hannah Niekamp (233), Megan Ward (212), and Makenzie Berning (187). The remainder of the ladies all contributed as they were subbed in and pulled through when needed. The second game was also won by the Tigers 892 to 875. The best bowlers of this game were Brooke Condon (229), Megan Ward (189), and Hannah Niekamp (176). Heading into the baker games Coach Phlipot warned the girls that the lanes were changing and drying out and to keep their focus as Coldwater is a great baker team. They continued to put up a fight during the baker games but Coldwater was on fire racking up 3 out of 5 of the baker games with a score over 200. The final baker scores were Coldwater 984 and Versailles 727. Unfortunately this became the first loss of the season for the Lady Tigers with a score 2525 to 2713. “The girls really fought to the end. We faced a tough team and credit needs to be given to Coldwater ringing in such high scores in the baker games while heading into them with a deficit. This was a great learning experience for the girls and they should all keep their heads held high,” said Coach Phlipot.

The girls will be back in action on January 3 rolling against Mississinawa Valley at Speedway Lanes in New Breman. If you want to follow the Tigers progress with stats go to
