Cavs look to take next step at states

— The Cavaliers’ boys’ bowling team made quite a run last season that saw it fall in the state semifinals and it had an individual loss in the finals while going for the singles title. The boys won the Big Nine title over Davison, which also made the state tournament and won an individual singles title.

Anthony Harger lost in the singles finals against Tylor Greene of Davison, 408-310. He defeated teammate Quintin Burnett in the quarterfinals, 402-371. Harger had the highest qualifying score among the 16 finalists with a score of 1,419. Burnett qualified eighth with a score of 1,245.

As a team, the Cavs qualified sixth out of the final eight teams with a score 3,516 and defeated Brownstown- Woodhaven, 1,502-1,247, in the quarterfinals, before falling to eventual state champions Detroit Catholic Central in the semifinals. The Shamrocks defeated Carman, 1,855- 1,747.

The girls’ team did have some individual success, but did not have the same team success as the boys. Jessica Teeples qualified for the state individual finals in 44th place with a score of 1,011. She did not qualify for the round of 16.

Kevin Dryer is the boys’ bowling coach, while Gordie Kaufman coaches the girls’ team. We were not able to reach coaches by deadline to comment on the upcoming season.
