Chelsea High School Bowling Team Year End Recap

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Heather Turnbow for the information in this story.)

The Chelsea High School Bowling teams ended their regular season play on Feb. 20 and all three teams, boys varsity, girls varsity and boys JV had a winning season. 

On Friday, Feb. 24 and Saturday, Feb. 25, the teams competed in Division 2, Region 10 Regionals held at Continental Lanes in Kalamazoo. Team events were held Friday with individual competition taking place on Saturday.

During the team events, each team had to bowl 8 Baker games. Baker games consist of five bowlers alternating frames. Bowler 1 completes the 1st and 6th frame, bowler 2 the 2nd and 7th and so on.  At the end of the team event, the boys placed 9th and the girls placed 10th each facing 13 other teams.

On Saturday, the individual competition began where each individual must complete 6 games. The end goal is to make the top 10 so that you can then compete at the state level. During individual competition, there were 76 girls and 83 boys competing.

At the end of the day Saturday, the CHS Bowlers finished as follows: Boys – Josh Doyle 5th, Nathan Doyle 17th, JJ Turnbow 24th, Edwin GreenLeaf IV 31st, Dylan Payeur 47th and Kyle Otrompke 69th.  Girls – Annabelle GreenLeaf 20th, Phoebe Ledbetter 32nd , Jenna Velky 35th, Lillian Paddock 46th, Quinlan Johnson 48th and Avery Piatt 55th

With these results, Josh Doyle qualified to compete at the state level. 

On Saturday, March 4, Josh Doyle traveled to Century Lanes, Waterford to compete.  Josh averaged 185 for the day and narrowly missed qualifying for the final single elimination bracket by only 24 pins. He was one of only two freshman bowlers who qualified for states. This is a great accomplishment.
