Staff report

SIDNEY — Sidney hosted West Carrollton Monday in high school bowling action at Bel-Mar Lanes, and both the boys and girls were victorious by wide margins.

The girls had 2,081 to 1,710 for the Lady Pirates. The victory moved Sidney to 4-0 overall.

Junior Heather Gold led the way for the Lady Jackets, rolling games of 247 and 188 for a 435 series.

“Heather is one of the hardest-working bowlers I’ve been around,” said coach Trent Knoop. “She is always in the bowling alley putting in work. It’s great to coach somebody like that.

“The girls work great as a team,” he added. “It’s been a pleasure coaching every single one of them. We are such a young team, but I have the confidence that all seven girls can bowl any time, and with any seven we will have success.”

Morgan Carey had games of 153 and 178 for Sidney, Jenna Beatty rolled a 171 and a 150, and Emily Reid had a 145 and followed it up with a 173.


The Sidney boys upped their record to 3-1 with a 2,399-1,742 win over the Pirates.

Leading the boys were seniors Jamie Wallis and Damon Huffman. Wallis rolled games of 258 and 202 for a 460 series, and Huffman had games of 258 and 197 for a 455.

“We started off fantastic right from the get go,” said Knoop. “We rolled an 1122 in our first individual game, and West Carrollton rolled a 736. We never looked back after that. This was a great rebounding win after a tough six-pin defeat against Ben Logan. I’m proud of the guys for coming back strong after that loss.”

Matt Elliott added games of 209 and 203 for a 412 series for the Jackets, and Austin Simon contributed a 212 game, with a 178 in his second game for a 390 series.

Both Sidney junior varsity teams were also victorious.

The Jackets are in action tonight at Wayne and will host Fort Loramie on Thursday.
