Bowling update: Stellar season for Sidney boys ends in sectionals

Staff report

CENTERVILLE — Sidney’s boys bowling team finished 11th in the Division I sectional match at Poelking South on Wednesday, two sports away from qualifying for districts.

The format was three regular team games and six baker games. The top nine teams advance to districts.

Sidney’s three team games were a 885, 846 and 920 for a 2,651. The Yellow Jackets were sitting in 14th after the team games, out of the cut by 210 pins. They rolled a 1,177 in the six baker games to move up to 11th.

Sidney was 16-2 in regular season in finished in the top five in several invitational tournaments.

“Obviously, this is disappointing that our season ended as soon as it did,” Sidney coach Trent Knoop said. “We were expecting big things. Not a whole lot went our way today, but at the end of the day we still had a very good year.

“We only had two losses on the season, and we won a few tournaments. I think if we re-bowled today then results would be different. But, that’s how bowling goes at times. I’m proud of the boys for having a good year, and never giving up. This was a very special team, and I’m glad to of had the chance to coach them.”

Damion Phillis rolled a 590 series, and will be bowling in districts as an individual.
