Twinsburg battled a more experienced Stow-Munroe Falls unit in Suburban League National Conference bowling action last Tuesday.
The Tigers’ more experienced bowlers did quite well in spots as eight-year head coach Anthony Byrd realizes his boys and girls teams are young.
In the matchup at Stow at Sto-Kent Family Entertainment, Twinsburg ran into some great performances.
Byrd saw his girls’ squad lose 1,947-1,728 as sophomore returnee Emily Vannoy had the team’s high series as she rolled a 349 series.
Senior Cassie Burgess tallied the Tigers’ high game with a 188 against the Lady Bulldogs.
In boys’ action, junior Kameron East had a high game of 240, but it wasn’t enough as Stow won 1,523-2,198 to move to 3-0 in league play.
East had a series of 398 while Stow was paced by Ethan Dunlap, who had a big 484 series, including a high game of 268.
Twinsburg is collecting game experience after huge graduation losses that included three-time state tournament qualifier Kaleb East, James Pope, Josh Kormanec, Riley Wilson, and Tommy McMullen.
Besides Kameron East, only senior Will Faini has starting experience.
According to Byrd, top newcomers for the boys are freshman Jaylen Bogarty, senior Austin Holloman-Rawls, and senior Brody Markovitz.
Byrd’s girls’ squad also had some key grad losses in Lauryn Clark, Shae Girod, and Madison Rocco.
Twinsburg will rely on Burgess, plus sophomores in Vannoy and Abbie Dines.
Top girls’ newcomers, according to Byrd, are junior Jordan Nudelman, sophomore Mary Calo, and sophomore Areesha Rizvi.
