Raider Bowling Team News

Saturday, January 25th, the PHS girls bowling team traveled to Fairlanes Bowling alley in Grandville for the annual Zeeland Bowling Tournament. Coach Joe Whitford told the Beacon, “We all were on pins and needles during qualifying, after the 7th out of 10 games we were in last place out of 12 teams! Then the girls dug deep and hard, winning the 1st round, then amazingly enough came through and took out Jenison the number 1 seed.”

Whitford added, “Next up was against Northview, we beat them to advance into the championship game against Mona Shores Sailors. In a two game match we came up 17 pins short of winning the championship. Still a 2nd place finish is awesome!”

Teams attending were Calvin Christian, Coopersville, Forest Hill Central, Forest Hill Eastern, Grand Haven, Hopkins, Jenison, Mona Shores, Northview, Portland, Reeth-Puffer and Sturgis.
