The team consisting of senior Ian Salyer, juniors Isaiah Henry, Ryan Carman, Caleb Gonterman, Chad Gossard Miller, sophomores Beau Salyer, Quinn Allmon, and freshman Drake Argabright brought home the first ever CBC Bowling Title for the BHS Boys.
Captain Ian Salyer rolled his first ever 700 series with a 723. Ryan Carman was presented with the sportsmanship award. Isaiah Henry was awarded 2nd Team All CBC for Kenton Trail Division. Ian Salyer & Beau Salyer were presented with 1st Team All CBC for the Kenton Trail Division. Ian Salyer was named the Bowler of the Year on the Kenton Trail Division. “I couldn’t be prouder of these boys,” said Coach Overholser. “They make a goal and have achieved almost everything they have set out to conquer. This group of boys work hard in the off season on bowling and in the end get results. This is a very talented group of boys.”
The boys end the regular season with an amazing record of 15-1. Isaiah Henry and Beau Salyer were presented with All Tournament Team from the Red & Blue Classic Tournament in Columbus, Ohio. The team also brought home a 1st place trophy from the Holiday Baker Tournament that was hosted by Ben Logan at TP Lanes in Bellefontaine. The varsity boys bowled in the Jim Shaw Tournament in Columbus, Ohio and brought home another victory and a 1st place trophy. They then went to the Sweet 16 Shoot Out Tournament and Ian Salyer made the All Tournament Team there. Ian Salyer also participated in the Strike Ball Shoot Out at the King’s Classic Tournament and was the last boys bowler standing with a strike. During a match outside of the CBC, Isaiah Henry rolled an almost perfect 299 game.
