MARCH 1: BOWLING DISTRICT RESULTS: Moeller Bowling Crusaders End Season at Districts with 'Best Finish,' Senior Philip Cleves is Top Moe Bowler!
From Coach Bob Orr: The Varsity Bowling Team had a great day at Districts last Thursday, but they came up short of advancing to State. The team averaged nearly 190/game, had its best baker game of the year and one of its best baker series, but they just couldn't keep up with teams from the GWOC and finished 16th out of 24. This was our 3rd consecutive year of advancing to Districts, and our best finish, beating a number of higher-ranked teams, like Elder, Princeton, Lebanon, and Anderson from the area. Top Moe bowler for the day was Philip Cleves with a 649 for three games. Two more strikes or spares, and Philip would have advanced to State as an individual. A great day and a great season!
