Portland Bowling Team State Finals Results
Portland High School was able to send three of their bowlers to state finals on Saturday.
Senior Aubrey Martin had a fantastic day, qualifying for 16th place after six games with high scores of 220, 184 and 182. She had to roll off against a bowler from Belding due to a tie. She did a great job making her spares, shooting a 188 winning by 37 pins.
Unfortunately, she had to bowl against #1 seed from Hillsdale. Losing by 65 pins over two games. This was a great finish for this young woman’s high school bowling career.
Sophomore Jessie Whitford also competed and in the six game qualifiers, but struggled and finished in 51st with her high games of 169 and 170.
Senior Luke Dalman did a great job, but came up just 26 pins short of the cut to 16th. His high games were 226, 216 and 186.
Coaches Whitford and Armour said, “We are so proud of the efforts put forward this year by the team and these three individuals.”
