For the Kent Roosevelt bowling teams, it certainly was a night to remember.

Both the Rough Riders boys and girls squads bested Portage Trail Conference County Division giant Garfield.

For the girls, the win for Roosevelt (2-0) ended a 160-match win streak within the PTC by the G-Men. Wednesday's final score was 2,111 to 2,082 in favor of the Riders.

"I am so proud of these girls," said Kent Roosevelt head coach Liz Cawley.

The Riders were led by Makayla Dulaney, Kiersten Pasket, Micayla Moore, Katelyn Jastromb and Trayce Harris, with Moore rolling a 202, Harris a 195 and Dulaney with a 177.

The G-Men received solid bowling from Olivia Doraski with a 224 game on her way to a 384 series, while Jessica Potteiger added a 185 game and Anna Brigham a 174.

However, it was not enough to keep Garfield (0-1) from losing its first match inside the PTC in six years.

Meanwhile, the Kent Roosevelt (1-1) boys were having a strike party on the lanes to rout Garfield by a final score of 2,664 to 2,228.

Rolling at their home of Kent Lanes, the Rough Riders were led by Joey Swanson, who blasted the pins for back-to-back 259 games (518 series).

Usually a score like that would produce the undoubted star of the match, but Kent Roosevelt sophomores Chris Hoskins and Connor Crabbe each tossed 443 series, with Hoskins bowling a high game of 245 and Crabbe a 243.

With Brandon Klembus' 457 series -- thanks to games of 221 and 236 -- the Rough Riders were almost unbeatable on Wednesday.

Garfield's Kyle Brigham rolled a 199 game on his way to a 371 series to lead the G-Men (0-1).



The Springfield Spartans, defending champions of the PTC Metro Division, earned a victory over cross-division rival Southeast at Bill White's Akron Lanes.

Springfield's Jordan Bever enjoyed a 394 series, with a 202 game, but it was Amanda Smith leading the Spartans with a 213 game and a 403 series.

Brooke Carson was the best for the Pirates, bowling a 164 game on her way to a 302 series, with Miranda Pastva adding a 145 game.
