Raider Bowling Takes Both Wins from Greyhounds

Both the Portland High School bowling teams defeated the Greyhounds of Eaton Rapids at the Wagon Wheel on Friday afternoon. The boys team won 20 to 10 in a match that coach William Armour III said, “brings the teams tied atop the CAAC Blue Division.” Portland’s girls team defeated Eaton Rapids 25 to five. Notable scores for the Portland boys were:

Luke Dalman 260

Evan Warner 198

Jack Dalman 185

Bennett Rushin 178

Notable scores for Eaton Rapids were:

Mclane McCarrick 214

Ethan Filion 206

Hunter Levering 179 Coach Armour said, “Both teams battled and game one was won by Portland by two pins and Baker game totals came in at a tie.” He added that, “Luke Dalman shot his second 260 game of the season.” For the Portland girls, notable scores were:

Jordan Fyan 189

Sammy Krausz 188

Emma Armour 184 Notable scores for Eaton Rapids girls were:

Shelby Vergason 200

Mckinzie Martin 191

“Today’s match was a very competitive event with both teams trying to make a move to the top of the CAAC Blue Division,” Armour said. “Portland was successful in holding off Eaton Rapids. The boys and girls teams for Portland both scored 15 points after the individual games. This means if Eaton Rapids could win both Baker games they would tie. Portland's boys team won the first Baker 180 to 173 taking the match 20 to 10. Portland's girls team won both baker games finishing with 25 points. It takes 16 to win the match.”

Armour went on to say, “Both of our teams are poised to do well in the CAAC tournament and regionals. We expect to take both teams to states and several individuals as well. With us having 18 girls and 14 boys it is hard to pick what bowlers are Varsity and JV each match.”

After today’s match, the Blue Division standings for the boys are:

Eaton Rapids 7-1

Portland 6-1

Waverly 2-2

DeWitt 2-3

Eastern 0-4

Ionia 2-2

Grand Ledge 0-6

For the girls:

Dewitt 4-0 Eaton Rapids 4-3 Portland 4-1 Grand Ledge 3-3 Waverly 0-4 Ionia 0-3
