Lynchburg-Clay Boys Bowling Team Wins 1st League Tournament

Lynchburg-Clay boys bowling team headed to state competition on Friday

The Lynchburg-Clay boys bowling team competed in the sectional tournament on Friday at Shawnee Lanes in Chillicothe Ohio. Eighteen schools from the South East district competed in the tournament on Friday. The teams bowled 3 regular games and 6 Baker games with the top 4 teams moving onto the District Tournament next week and a shot and going to the State Tournament. After the first regular game the Lynchburg-Clay boys had a rough start posting a team score of 859 and placing them in the 5th position. They then found their line on the modified sport pattern and bounced back with two games that were closer to their season average. The second game was a 935 followed by their third game of 952.  At the end of the regular game session the LC boys were into 3rd place and feeling better about at least transferring to the district tournament and regrouping for next week.  In the regular game session Lynchburg-Clay was paced by Senior Noah Fenner who bowled a 212, 247, and 204 for a 663 series total and 3rd best out of over 100 bowlers in the tournament. Sophomore Jonah Fenner followed in 5th with a 638, Senior Eli Hollingsworth 33rd with a 497, Junior Nathan Burns 36th with a 485 and Senior Brayden Sellman 43rd with a 463. In the 6 game baker format that followed the regular games Lynchburg-Clay was able to get Sophomore Kaleb Thomas into the mix and the six players from Lynchburg-Clay were able to come together and fire three of the six games at 200 or better and move into first place to claim the Sectional Championship.  This is the first sectional title in the schools program, which was just started five years ago. 

The Lynchburg-Clay boys’ and girls’ teams are co-coached by Shawn Mclaughlin and James O’Connor, both coaches are very proud of their players and everything that the teams have accomplished this season. The teams will compete in the first ever Southern Hills Athletic Conference tournament on Monday and both coaches are hoping their teams walk away with SHAC titles. The District tournament will be held on Saturday at Shawnee Lanes in Chillicothe.
