LOGAN — Home was indeed sweet home as the Logan Chieftains and Logan Lady Chiefs opened their home bowling seasons with victories over visiting Lancaster Fisher Catholic Wednesday at Scenic Lanes.
The junior varsity boys enjoyed a 1,832-1,561 victory over the Irish and the Lady Chiefs varsity came through with a 1,805-1,463 success in South Central Ohio Bowling Conference matches.
The Logan boys took an 838-696 lead after one singles game and extended their margin to 1,572-1,373 before easily winning both Baker games.
Colten Castle’s 234-165—399 set paced the winners, with Braden Aurand spilling 326 and Collin Rimkus 286.
“Not a bad night for the Chiefs,” said Logan coach Steve Castle. “It was nice having Colten for tonight’s match. I have to use him when he’s available because he’s also playing (junior varsity) basketball. Josh Franco (167 in the first singles game) had a decent match for a first-year bowler and Ben Estep (156 in game two) is coming along.”
The girls match was close after one singles game, with Logan leading 782-719, but the Lady Chiefs extended their margin going into the Baker games by controlling game two 727-516.
Nettie Ludwig spilled a 200-175—375 to pace the Lady Chiefs, Emma Castle dropped 157-176—333 and Jaelyn Boggess added a 329 set.
“The girls are starting to relax and be a little more confident each match,” coach Castle praised.
The Chiefs and Lady Chiefs take on Circleville in First Capital Conference contests Friday night at Shawnee Lanes in Chillicothe and then host Westfall Saturday afternoon (3 p.m.) at Scenic Lanes.
