BAY CITY — The Carman- Ainsworth girls’ bowling team traveled to the Bay City Western team tournament on Dec. 22 and put forth a great showing. It didn’t start off so good for the Cavaliers, standing 12th out of 16 teams after two games. However, in its next 11 games, Carman-Ainsworth would come out on top 10 times, including eight BAKER games for a score of 190.
“We finished with a 11-2 head-tohead record to put us in second place, 17 pins behind first-place Kearsley,” said coach Gordon Kaufman. “Our second round matchup was against Waterford Kettering. We beat them two BAKER games to one to make it to the step-ladder competitions. In the first step-ladder match against Saginaw Heritage, we won 358-317. In the championship match, we lost, 395-345, against Kearsley.”
The Lady Cavaliers were scheduled to take to the road for a Saginaw Valley League cross-over match up with Saginaw High on Dec. 19. The Trojans, however, were unable to field a girls’ squad this season, so Carman- Ainsworth bowled unopposed.
Quinisha Burnett rolled games of 191 and 193 while Kenzey Lord bowled a 218 and 221. Bernardette Gruber was able to record a 179. The Cavs were scheduled to travel to Bay City Western this past Saturday, but will return to action this Saturday at the Flint Holiday Mixed Doubles meet. — B.P.
