We are so proud of Aubree and the rest of the girls this tournament is a great practice round for what will come in 2 weeks at regionals and hopefully states
Portland's boys team put 2 in the top 16 Josh Rutkowski who finished in 5th made it through the first round great finish for his first CAAC tournament. Luke Dalman as he did last year won the CAAC individual Tournament bowling 14 games averaging a 198.5. the high games for the boys were Josh Rutkowski 236, 202, 196, Luke Dalman 231,223,215,214,211,208, 205, Kyle Edlund 191, Brandon Ladisky 186, Cooper Hoskins 182. This tournament gives us great chance at regionals to make it to states.
This sweep is even more remarkable due to this being a rebuilding year. Portland's girls team lost 6 seniors last year and the Boys lost 8 seniors, it is also amazing of the 6 years this tournament has been in existence Portland boys have won 3 times Jack Dalman once and Luke Dalman twice
