The seven bowlers consisted of senior Josh Austin, junior Kyle Knarr, sophomores Jacob Cartwright, Blake Fisk, and Jarod Plank, and freshman Dugan Conely, and Trevor Ruark.

After a total pin count of 3592 in 3 regular and 4 Baker games, the team moved on to the semifinals to bowl against 2nd place qualifiers-Muskegon Mona Shores.  Josh Austin led his team with a 674 series which qualified him for a 4th place in his division.

Cedar trailed Mona Shores by 5 pins after their first game, but came back strong the 2nd game to defeat Mona Shores. The Cedar boys moved on to face the 4th place qualifiers-Fruitport who had defeated the 1st place qualifiers-Zeeland.  Cedar fell behind their first match, but rallied in their second game to defeat the Fruitport team.  Cedar took home a 1st place finish and trophy in their division.

Cedar’s next match, for the overall tournament championship, was against Hudsonville Unity Christian.  Cedar started out with a 212 game to stay 10 pins ahead of Hudsonville. The Cedar team defeated Hudsonville Unity Christian with a 246 game to seal their 1st place win for the Fruitport Invitational.

“They really came through as a team and supported each other throughout the whole tournament,” said Coach Todd Austin. “I am very proud of these boys and what they accomplished today.”

Lightning strikes twice for Cedar bowling coach

 Bill Heath

Cedar Springs bowling coach Bill Heath

Cedar Springs bowling coach Bill Heath has been bowling for 30 years and never had a 300 game until Dec 27. Heath was bowling in a Monday night league at Westgate Bowl when he threw 12 strikes for his first 300 game.
Afterward, he said, “I was nervous but I had been to the last ball before actually two times last year and I shot 298 both times. I was really happy I made it. I just want to throw a 800 series now and my bowling career will be complete!”
It’s funny he said that because on Jan 15, in the Saturday mixed league at Rockford Lanes, Heath put together games of 300, 290, and a 246, for a whopping 836 series!
When asked how he felt Heath said, “Its a dream come true.  I felt like if I ever was going to have an 800 series it would be at Rockford. My high school team bowls there, we practice there and Cory Brown, the owner of Rockford lanes, is a good lane man. He has the shot at Rockford as good as one I have ever seen! He does a good job!”
Congratulations Bill Heath!
