The Cedar Springs Girls Bowling team took first place at the Catholic Central invitational, on December 30, at Park Center Lanes.

According to Coach Chris Ruark, this tournament was a baker tournament. “A baker game is where they have five bowlers and the first bowler will bowl the first and sixth frame, the second bowler bowls the second and seventh frame and so on until the game is done,” he explained. “They bowled a total of 15 baker games. With baker games you need to work as a team.”

Ruark said there were 13 teams at the tournament, and after 15 baker games, they took the top four teams, with Cedar Springs girls being 4th. They went up against Northview and bowled two more baker games and won, with scores for Cedar of 146 and 164 against Northview’s scores of 133 and 133.

They moved on to play against Wyoming. They bowled two more baker games against them and won first place, with scores of 127 and 175, over Wyoming’s 148 and 119.

“The girls were getting strikes and picking up their spares, which is important in a baker game,” noted Ruark. “All six girls got a chance to bowl and they did great. We are proud of them.”

The Cedar Springs girls also took first place at the Allendale invitational on December 13.
